Vicor Corporation Further Expands Picor(R) Cool-Power(R) ZVS Regulator Portfolio With New 48 V Buck Regulators

NUREMBERG, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- May 20, 2015 -- PCIM Europe 2015 - Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced the expansion of its Picor® Cool-Power® ZVS Point-of-Load Regulator portfolio with the introduction of high efficiency PI3542, PI3543, PI3545, and PI3546 buck regulators. The entire Cool-Power portfolio is characterized by products with benchmark efficiency and density performance that are simple to use, accelerating time to market.

  • Enables 48 V direct to PoL high performance step-down regulation
  • Zero-Voltage Switching (ZVS) topology provides unparalleled efficiency over 96%
  • High density 10 x 10 x 2.5 mm LGA System in Package (SiP) module for power delivery over 100 W
  • Advanced features including constant current control for lighting and battery applications

PI354x Cool-Power ZVS Buck Regulators utilize the integration of a high performance ZVS topology that enables 48 V direct to PoL without sacrificing performance. With step-down regulation from a higher voltage source, engineers can deploy more efficient power distribution architectures, reduce I2R losses, and eliminate costly and inefficient intermediate conversion stages.

  • PI354x series operates from 36 Vin to 60 Vin
  • Regulates an output voltage ranging from 2.2 V to 14 V, with output current delivery up to 10 A
  • Power delivery can be further increased by using single wire current sharing without any additional components

The PI354x Cool-Power ZVS Buck Regulators are designed for a wide range of applications leveraging higher voltage distribution, including: telecom, network infrastructure, datacenters, industrial, battery, and lighting applications.

The PI354x series expands and enhances the Vicor Power Component Design Methodology. When used in conjunction with Vicor's front-end products and Factorized Power products, the PI354x series can enable a complete power chain from AC or HVDC (200 V+) source to PoL.

Pricing and Availability
Picor Cool-Power PI354x ZVS buck regulators can be ordered today from Vicor and Vicor authorized distributors. PI354x series pricing starts at $12.80 in 1Ku quantities. Visit the website for more information. To order, email, call 1-800-735-6200 or visit us at
