Vicor Presentation at Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Boston 2012 to Highlight Point-of-Load Power Design Strategies for Embedded Engineers

Vicor to Present Tips and Techniques for Achieving Highly Efficient, High Performance Embedded Power Designs

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) - Vicor™ Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced its participation in the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Boston 2012, timed to coincide with DESIGN East which runs September 17 - 20 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. Robert Gendron, P.E., Vice President of Marketing and Applications Engineer at Vicor, is slated to lead a tutorial from 10:30AM to 11:30AM on Tuesday, September 18, in Room 204, titled 'Practical Power Design Considerations to Maximize Performance in Your Embedded System.'

Whether powering a microprocessor, DSP, FPGA, amplifier or memory component, efficient power delivery to the board is a critical consideration. As board-level power requirements scale ever higher to accommodate increasingly dense component topologies, embedded designers are challenged to maximize power management efficiency without sacrificing board space or design simplicity.

Mr. Gendron's tutorial will help embedded designers understand the challenges of optimizing highly efficient point of load power solutions, highlighting innovative power architectures incorporating Vicor's high performance DC-DC power solutions. The session will provide a primer on point of load power design for engineers with no power experience and highlight performance considerations relevant for engineers with experience in DC-DC power management schemes.

Featuring product demonstrations and hundreds of technical training classes, ESC Boston provides the design engineering community with a forum to learn, collaborate and recognize excellence while celebrating decades of unique local electronics industry culture, innovation and significant contributions to the global technology industry.

DESIGN East builds on the rich foundation of training, education and products available at ESC, bringing together all of the latest practical design insights, techniques and products across a range of application and technology areas. DESIGN East is comprised of 5 distinct Summits: ESC Boston + Android Summit + DesignMED + LED Summit + Sensors in Design to bring attendees more than 120 sessions across 21 tracks.
