Vicor – New modules enable efficient 48V direct-to-PoL circuits


Vicor Corporation has introduced a new generation of 48V Direct-to-PoL (Point-of-Load) power components.

These modules, which enable contemporary low-voltage, high-current CPUs, graphics processors, ASICs and DDR memory ICs to be powered from a 48V distribution bus, enable unprecedented power density and conversion efficiency and reduce distribution losses in the power system.

Vicor’s latest 48V modules draw on advances in power-conversion engines, control systems and modular power technology. They include the Cool-Power PI3751-02 buck-boost pre-regulator module and the VTM48Kp020x current multiplier module.
