Vicor's Breakthrough ChiP Power Component Packaging Technology to Make European Debut at PCIM Europe 2013

Vicor Product Demonstrations and Technical Presentations on Tap for Premier Power Electronics Conference; Attendees Can Visit Vicor at Hall 9 Stand 155

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced its participation in the Power Conversion Intelligent Motion (PCIM) 2013 conference, the international conference devoted to power electronics and its applications, hosted in Nuremberg, Germany, May 14-16, 2013. Among the highlights planned for PCIM 2013, Vicor will showcase the newest additions to its comprehensive portfolio of high-performance power components, and host demonstrations and technical presentations focused on the latest power innovations from AC to the point of load.

PCIM 2013 will mark the highly anticipated European unveiling of Vicor's new Converter housed in Package (ChiP) power component packaging technology, recently introduced in the United States at APEC 2013. ChiP packaging technology leverages Vicor's world-class power expertise and manufacturing capabilities to enable a new generation of ultra high density, thermally optimized power components. Components based on Vicor's scalable ChiP packaging technology will provide a staggering 4X increase in power density and 20% reduction in power loss versus earlier generation components, equipping customers to achieve previously unattainable system size, weight and power efficiency targets.

At Vicor's booth, attendees can visit with Vicor's team of power management architects to learn more about solutions and trends such as 400 VDC bus conversion solutions for power distribution, VR12-conformant, direct 48V-to-processor power conversion solutions, customer-configurable VI Chip® PRM® modules, and Zero-Voltage Switching (ZVS) point-of-load DC-DC regulation. Vicor will also present two technical papers at the conference, titled "Controlled-Bus Architecture with Voltage Equalization: A System Approach to Higher Efficiency in Low Voltage DC Distribution" and "Control of a Discontinuous-Conduction-Mode ZVS Buck-Boost Topology for Microprocessor Core Power."

PCIM 2013 is a leading international conference focused on power electronics and its applications in intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management. PCIM 2013 offers a wide range of seminars and networking opportunities, which together comprise an ideal platform for dialogue and exchange of ideas centric to research, applications and product development.

Conference attendees can visit Vicor at Hall 9 Stand 155 in the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre.
