Vicor Corporation's VIA PFM(TM) AC-DC Front-End Module Offers High Power Density and Fast Time to Market

NUREMBERG, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- May 18, 2015 -- PCIM Europe 2015 - Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today introduced its high density, low profile, integrated VIA PFM™ AC-DC front-end power modules. VIA PFM AC-DC front-end converter modules achieve a power density of 8 W/cm3 (127 W/in3) supplying an isolated, PFC regulated 24 V or 48 V SELV DC output at up to 400 W from the universal AC input range of 85 to 264 V with 93% peak efficiency.

The VIA PFM is 5X thinner than traditional 1U supplies, offering unique design advantages to power system architects challenged by size constraints. With its 9 mm thin profile and 36 mm width, the VIA PFM can be mounted on the sidewall of any typical 1U chassis, saving valuable real estate. Thermally adept VIA PFMs may be chassis mounted and conduction cooled to eliminate fans, thereby improving overall system reliability and further minimizing the power system footprint. High density, high efficiency and low thermal resistance make VIA PFM front-end modules well-suited for a wide range of end-market applications, including small cell wireless base stations, size constrained LED lighting applications, industrial and automation systems.

About the Vicor Integrated Adapter (VIA) 9 mm Thin Thermally Adept Modules
VIA power modules enable power system designers to create highly dense, efficient, flexible and scalable power systems. Vicor's 9 mm thin VIA power modules integrate system functions including EMI filtering, transient protection and inrush current limiting to reduce design time and design risk. Available in chassis-mount and PCB-mount configurations, VIA power modules support a multiplicity of mechanical mounting and thermal management options.

Supporting Tools
Vicor's online PowerBench™ design tool suite enables designers to model a complete AC to PoL power system with a modular power component design methodology. The PowerBench tool suite provides the ability to quickly configure and visualize end-to-end power systems and dynamically analyze system performance, accelerating design cycles and reducing development costs.

Availability and Additional Information
VIA PFM front-end power modules are available from Vicor and Vicor authorized distributors. Pricing starts at $107 for OEM quantities. Visit the website for more information. To order, email custserv@vicorpower.com, call 1-800-735-6200 or visit us at www.vicorpower.com.
