Vicor modules establish new power conversion performance standards.

Compact

Miniature modules allow for easy placement on existing boards, eliminating the need for a major redesign. 

Scalable

Parallel operation attains higher power levels above the capability of one module within a power delivery network

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.

Heat dissipation Vicor module versus discrete solution

Easily design a power delivery network

Tested and qualified...just drop it in

Unlike building discreet 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.
