Vicor Corporation to Showcase Power Management Solutions at Supercomputing 2012

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ANDOVER, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- Vicor™ Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced its participation in Supercomputing 2012 (SC12), the international conference for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis, hosted in Salt Lake City, Utah, November 12 - 15. At the event Vicor will showcase the newest additions to its comprehensive portfolio of high performance, high efficiency power management solutions for demanding datacenter applications. Supercomputing 2012 attendees can visit Vicor in Booth 4262.

Among the highlights planned for Supercomputing 2012, Vicor will host live demonstrations of a higher voltage (400 VDC) power distribution system for datacenter and telecom applications, featuring Vicor's VI Chip® power modules and Factorized Power Architecture® (FPA®). These demonstrations will highlight the benefits and feasibility of higher voltage DC power distribution using commercial-grade, ETSI EN 300 132-3-1-compliant hardware, which enables greater conversion efficiency and lower operating costs than conventional power distribution schemes.

Vicor will also showcase its new Picor PI33XX Cool-Power® ZVS buck regulator series, which affords system designers maximum power density and flexibility for high efficiency point of load DC-DC regulation. The integration of a high performance Zero-Voltage Switching (ZVS) topology within the PI33XX series increases point of load performance, providing best in class power efficiency up to 98% peak by minimizing the significant switching losses associated with conventional buck regulators that use hard-switching topologies.

Additionally, Vicor will highlight its direct 48V-to-processor, Intel x86 VR12.0-compliant power conversion solution for datacenter, cloud computing and telecom applications. Vicor's current multiplication from 48V directly to a 1V microprocessor load enables more efficient power distribution and eliminates duplicate conversion stages found in traditional 48V to 12V to 1V power systems, yielding more than 5% greater overall efficiency in a package size that's 3X smaller than competing offerings.

Supercomputing's exhibits, technical paper sessions, tutorials, workshops, and panel discussions distinguish the event as the premier forum to discuss and demonstrate emerging technologies and innovative applications in high performance computing. The 2012 conference is expecting 10,000 attendees representing more than 50 countries and 366 exhibitors.
