Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Electronic Components
Compare:HTHIY, MIELY, APH, TEL, GLW » details
Traded in other countries:VCV.Germany,
Vicor Corp was incorporated in Delaware in 1981. The Company is engaged in designing, developing, manufacturing and marketing of modular components and complete systems for converting, regulating, and controlling electric current. Power systems are incorporated into virtually all electronic equipment. In equipment utilizing Alternating Current ("AC") voltage from a primary source, a power system converts AC voltage into the stable Direct Current ("DC") voltage necessary to power subsystems and/or individual applications or "loads". In many electronic devices, this DC voltage may be further converted to one or more lower voltages required by a range of loads. The Company's business segments are organized by key product lines; The Brick Business Unit segment, The VI Chip segment, and The Picor segment. The Brick Business Unit segment ("BBU") designs, develops, manufactures and markets the Company's modular power converters and configurable products, and also includes the operations of the Company's Westcor division, the six entities comprising Vicor Custom Power, and the BBU operations of VJCL. The VI Chip segment includes VI Chip Corporation, which designs, develops, manufactures and markets the Company's factorized power architecture ("FPA") products. The VI Chip segment also includes the VI Chip business conducted through VJCL. The Picor segment includes Picor Corporation, which designs, develops, manufactures and markets integrated circuits and related products for use in a variety of power management and power system applications. Picor develops these products to be sold as part of Vicor's products or to third parties for separate applications. The customer applications it addresses include, in alphabetical order, aerospace and defense electronics, enterprise and high performance computing, industrial automation, telecommunications and networking infrastructure, test and measurement instrumentation, and vehicles and transportation. The Company's products are sold worldwide to customers ranging from smaller, independent manufacturers of highly specialized electronic devices to larger original equipment manufacturers, OEMs and their contract manufacturers. The Company faces competition from large global manufacturers & suppliers.
