Since the introduction of the DC-DC converter "brick" in 1982, Vicor has advanced power component paradigms that enable our customers to design power system solutions meeting their unique requirements with standard off-the-shelf building blocks.
Considerable investment in R&D has led to products that represent three distinct types of power components:
With an area of 3.3 in2 to 10.1 in2 and a height of 0.50 in., brick products are designed for through-hole mounting to a customer's PCB with flexible thermal management, including a wide range of heat-sink options.
V•I Chip Products
With an area of 0.5 in2 to 2 in2 and a height of 0.265 in., V•I Chip products are designed to surface mount on a customer's board with power density up to 1.5 kW per in3 and current density up to 110 A per in2.
With an area of 0.05 in2 to1 in2 and a height less than 0.25 in., silicon-based Picor products are designed to surface mount on a customer's board and provide high density power conversion and power management functions.
