Understanding Sine Amplitude Converter Topology

July 06, 2011 // By Maurizio Salato, Vicor
Sine Amplitude Converter (SAC) topology is the dynamic, high-performance engine at the heart of Vicor's new VI BRICK Bus Converter products.  It delivers unparalleled benefits to OEM power designers seeking to maximize system performance and gain competitive advantages.  This white paper discusses the operation of the SAC topology and presents a market-specific example of the effectiveness and benefits of SAC in Intermediate Bus Architecture applications.  This paper examines the performance of the VI BRICK IBC in terms of efficiency, power density, transient response and other important factors.
