Vicor to highlight 48V power solutions for AI enabled Cloud Data Centres at 2018 ODCC Summit

Robert Gendron, Vicor Corporate Vice President, will be providing a keynote presentation at the 2018 Open Data Centre Committee (ODCC) Summit in Beijing.

He will present on the Progression & Evolution of Power Technology within Cloud Data Centres, which outlines the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) present within the cloud, AI processors are now taking power demands to even higher levels. The ability to power AI processors, and not limit their full potential, creates new requirements not only on the processor VR but on the datacenter’s power infrastructure and server rack.

Headquartered in Andover, Massachusetts, Vicor Corporation designs, manufactures and markets innovative, high-performance modular power components, to enable customers to efficiently convert and manage power from the power source to the point of load.

Vicor will have a booth at the show demonstrating the Vicor three-phase to 48V and 48V direct-to-load AI power solutions as well as advanced cooling technologies such as liquid cooling and immersion cooling.

Vicor is an innovator in power products that enable 48V distribution architectures, while achieving the highest density and efficient power designs, critical for advanced artificial intelligence (AI) processors currently being adopted into edge computing and the cloud.

Robert Gendron to present on the power challenges facing data centres and artificial intelligence.

Power Component Design Methodology
The Vicor Power Component Design Methodology enables power system designers to reap all of the benefits of modular power component design – predictable component and system functionality and reliability, fast design cycles, and easy system configurability, re-configurability and scaling – while achieving system operating efficiency, power density and economy that rival the best alternative solutions. Utilizing the Vicor Power System Designer, engineers can select from an extensive portfolio of proven Vicor power components to architect, optimize and simulate their complete power system, all the way from their input sources to their points of load. This innovative approach to power system design delivers fast time-to-market and state-of-the-art performance while minimizing the possibility of last-minute surprises and delays that so often occur with conventional or custom design methodologies.
