Commenting on third quarter performance, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, stated: “With increased production rates and improved productivity, Q3 gross margins reached 50% and, with reduced operating expenses, led to appreciably higher profitability. Increasing profit margins reflect the leverage of our business model, while the broadening adoption of our highly differentiated solutions is beginning to reflect the substantial investments we have made in advanced technologies over the last fifteen years. We believe that our Intellectual Property will drive substantial long term returns as Vicor continues to expand its leadership in high performance power systems.”

Dr. Vinciarelli went on to state, “Confronted with customer adoption of 48V power systems, competitors with past accomplishments at 12V have recently made claims of better performance and cost at 48V predicated on the “intermediate bus” power distribution architecture (i.e., two-step conversion) getting a new lease on life using new components, such as GaN FETs. These initiatives cannot circumvent the multiplicity of fundamental obstacles to delivering hundreds of amperes at less than 1V. Advanced power conversion topologies, power distribution architectures and Power-on-Package technology are the necessary keys to high performance AI applications powered “directly” from 48V. With increasing peak current requirements, global competitors driving to win the AI race are adopting Vicor Power-on-Package solutions.”
