World Congress Experience WCX 2022
Vicor demonstrated how modular power delivers groundbreaking new gains for the future of electrification of xEV platforms
Vicor unveiled three new approaches to power xEV electrification at the premiere global automotive engineering event, World Congress Experience (WCX™) in Detroit on April 5 – 7, 2022. Proven Vicor solutions use the highest density power modules and power architectures that can deliver up to a 50% reduction in power losses.
Addressing three top electrification topics, Vicor presentations offer innovative solutions that save packaging space and weight, and that provide power-design ease and flexibility.
