Vicor Modules Support the Data Center Infrastructure Highlighted by Google at Open Compute Summit
March 10, 2016 / Vicor Corporation
Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced its latest generation of 48V Direct-to-PoL (Point-of-Load) power components. These modules, which allow contemporary low-voltage, high-current CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and DDR memory to be powered off of a 48V distribution bus, enable unprecedented power density, conversion efficiency and low power system distribution loss. Evidencing advances in power conversion engines, control systems and modular power technology, Vicor's latest 48V modules are being introduced following the Open Compute Project ("OCP") Summit 2016 at which Google announced its initiative to promote 48V server and distribution infrastructure as a standard for data centers. Patrizio Vinciarelli, President and CEO of Vicor, commented: "By developing its 48V server infrastructure, Google pioneered green data centers. And by promoting an open 48V rack standard, Google is now enabling a reduction in the global cloud electricity footprint."
