Regulation and fixed-ratio conversion
Isolated and non-isolated
Wide input and output voltage ranges
Bidirectional and scalable to any size array
Power modules are compact and power dense
Up to 5x the density
Vicor modules establish new power conversion performance standards.
Miniature modules allow for easy placement on existing boards, eliminating the need for a major redesign.
Parallel operation attains higher power levels above the capability of one module within a power delivery network.
Vicor power module
Typical discrete solution
Our power modules are far more efficient
Up to 98% efficiency
High efficiency not only reduces the thermal impact of a converter, it also reduces the power demand on the input source.
Uniform and predictable heat dissipation
The profile of Vicor modules allows for uniform and predictable heat dissipation, while other power delivery options have a chaotic physical profile with many peaks and valleys.
Heat limited to a small footprint
A power module’s minimal heat losses are isolated to one spot, rather than scattered throughout the design.
Easily design a power delivery network
Tested and qualified...just drop it in
Unlike building discrete power solutions and having to repeatedly test and qualify the design, using the modular approach to power advances the design process much faster.
Easily adapt to new power needs
Accommodating new loads — or changes in power needs in a design — is easily accomplished by replacing or adding modules.
Re-use designs for different systems
Another time-saving advantage of a power delivery network is the ability to use the same design for different systems, with the same or similar modules.
