Vicor to present modular power conversion solutions for 48V Zonal Architectures at WCX™ 2024

High-density, 800V and 48V scalable power modules solve electrification power conversion challenges

DETROIT, April 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the automotive industry moves toward 48V zonal architectures, power system design engineers are looking for new high-voltage power conversion solutions that have leading power density, weight and scalability attributes.

Vicor will be presenting five papers at World Congress Experience 2024 (WCX™) in Detroit on April 16 – 18, detailing its innovative approach to 800V and 48V power conversion using new high-density, scalable power modules with proprietary topologies and innovative packaging.

The Vicor papers are:

  • Achieving EM conducted emission compliance for high-voltage conversion with switching frequency above 1.3MHz
    Presented by: Nicola Rosano, Sr. Strategic System Engineer, EMEA
  • Designing 48V zonal architecture that keeps the high voltage inside the BEV battery pack 
    Presented by: YK Choi, Sr. Field Application Engineer, Vicor, APAC
    Kang YoungJae, Chief Engineer, INFAC
  • Eliminating the high-voltage precharge with existing hardware in BEV
    Presented by: Patrick Kowalyk Automotive, Principal Field Application Engineer, North America
  • Migrating to 48V with high efficiency, power density and efficient system cost
    Presented by: Patrick Wadden, Global VP, Automotive Business Unit
  • The uncertain future of aftermarket loads in a 48V world
    Presented by: David McChesney, Strategic Account Manager, North America
