48V direct to low voltage conversion
Efficient, dense, cost-effective and reliable power distribution Vicor 48V ecosystem 48V innovations

If more power is needed, consider 48V

Engineers are finding the losses attributed by simply increasing power with 12V distribution are limiting their systems when more power is needed, when efficiency is a concern and/or when weight is a problem. Vicor enhanced 48V converters/regulators enable efficiencies, cost and size/weight performance comparable to 12V counterparts, while also providing more flexibility and solving the challenge of reducing power flow to the load effectively given cable, connector and/or PCB limitations. Vicor 48V architectures offer a substantial reduction in I2R losses and convert directly from 48V to the load voltage without first regulating to 12V., benefitting many industries including computing, automotive and LED lighting.
