ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2014) -  Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced the next installment in its popular Power Advantage Educational Program, featuring expert design tips and techniques aimed at optimizing power solution design. The new live webinar on April 10, 2014, presented by Sean Crilly, Vice President, VI Chip Design Engineering, will feature Vicor's online power analyzer, PowerBench™ Whiteboard, and highlight the tool's capabilities for streamlining power system design processes.

Power engineers have traditionally relied on cumbersome, manual diagraming and bench analysis processes to develop their power systems, losing valuable time with each iterative design and test cycle. The problem compounds for engineers looking to use multiple components to deliver highly optimized power component solutions. Using Vicor's free online PowerBench Whiteboard tool, in conjunction with the Solution Selector, engineers can quickly and easily identify the necessary components for their system designs. They can architect optimal end-to-end power chains and dynamically analyze system efficiency. In addition, Vicor provides a growing list of application-specific reference designs to help power engineers jumpstart their design.

With these powerful capabilities, engineers are afforded new levels of design agility and visualization across the power chain, and can employ a modular power system design methodology that allows them to architect complete power systems using high-performance, modular components. This methodology maximizes design success and minimizes time to revenue, facilitating the creation of differentiated power systems with 'building block' ease and flexibility.

This live webinar is scheduled for Thursday, April 10, at 2PM CET/8AM Eastern (click here to register). A second live presentation of this webinar is scheduled for later in the day at 1PM Eastern/10AM Pacific (click here to register). There is no cost to attend this webinar.
