BISinfotech awarded Vicor the prestigious BETA (BIS Excellence & Technovation Award) Award, recognizing Vicor as an “Innovator in Power” for their Factorized Power Architecture (FPA). Vicor’s Factorized Power Architecture reduces power losses associated with distributing low-voltage, high current power while handling dynamic voltage and transient load demands in high-performance, power hungry applications, such as AI processing. FPA excels in meeting the extreme power demands in artificial intelligence accelerator cards, data centers and other high performance computing applications.
What is a Factorized Power Architecture?
FPA factorizes power conversion into separate regulation and transformation functions that can be individually optimized to maximize performance. The regulation module can be placed at any location on the motherboard while the critical current delivery module the current multiplier is optimized for density, efficiency and low noise and can be placed in extremely close proximity to the processor. Current multipliers are capable of delivering a high current of greater than 1000 Amps and enable a 50X reduction in power delivery network resistance. Depending on processor currents, Vicor offers both lateral and vertical factorized power options.
