Vertically-integrated foundry delivers new capacity to manufacture power modules for artificial intelligence, electrified vehicles, advanced communications and other high-growth markets

ANDOVER, Mass., May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On May 18, state and local officials will celebrate the opening of a new, state-of-the-art power module manufacturing facility. The world’s first ChiP™ (Converter housed in Package) fabrication facility, or “ChiP fab” enables scalable, automated, cost-effective manufacturing of power modules in the United States.

At 400 Federal Street, at 10:00am on May 18th, 2022, Vicor employees and senior management will be joined by state and local government representatives.

With its new ChiP foundry, Vicor takes a major step toward realizing its vision to enable high-performance, modular power system solutions capable of satisfying demanding power requirements.

“Our new ChiP fab integrates all of the process steps necessary to manufacture high-density power modules in wafer-like panels with short cycle time and flexible capacity,” said Mike McNamara, Vicor vice president of Operations.

A leader in innovation with a track record of US manufacturing
The new facility comes online as Vicor celebrates 41 years of expanding its performance leadership within the global power electronics industry with U.S.-based manufacturing.

The new, vertically-integrated ChiP fab utilizes patented fabrication processes that further differentiate Vicor power modules by enabling the most power-dense and energy efficient solutions.

Industrial Ethernet Next Generation Connections

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Amphenol ICC

No longer are hierarchical communication models effective in this new era of Industry 4.0. We need to look at an independent communication model that includes a single network with industrial ethernet at its core. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Peter Swift about Amphenol’s SPE and iX Industrial family of connectors. They take a closer look at the details of these connector solutions and investigate why they are a great fit for the next generation of industrial automation applications.
