48V direct to low voltage conversion
Efficient, dense, cost-effective and reliable power distribution Vicor 48V ecosystem 48V innovations

If more power is needed, consider 48V

Engineers are being constrained by 12V systems, which cannot support the higher power levels needed to deliver increasing levels of performance and functionality. As power increases, 12V busses become less efficient and consume more space and weight for cables to carry higher currents. 48V systems eliminate these inefficiencies by drastically reducing currents and power losses. Vicor enhanced 48V converters/regulators enable efficiencies, cost and size/weight performance comparable to 12V counterparts, while also providing more flexibility and solving the challenge of reducing power flow to the load effectively given cable, connector and/or PCB limitations. Vicor 48V architectures offer a substantial reduction in I2R losses and convert directly from 48V to the load voltage without first regulating to 12V, benefitting many industries including computing, automotive and LED lighting.
