Vicor Releases 10kW Power Tablet AC-DC Converter


Vicor Corporation’s RFM module is a simple solution to high power delivery. Power Tablet RFM Enables High-Density Server Racks

US Based Company, Vicor Corporation launched a 3-phase, AC-DC converter module (“RFM”). This module has the capability of delivering 10kW of regulated 48VDC in a power tablet configuration measuring 9.4 x 5.9 x 0.6in (24 x 15 x 1.5cm). The RFM provides a power-factor-corrected, regulated, and isolated DC output with integrated filtering and built-in fault protection for redundant operation. The RFM can be configured to accept worldwide 3-phase AC mains from 200 to 480VAC.


RFM module has a low-profile power tablet design which enables unprecedented power density and thermal management flexibility. For example, four RFMs in parallel, including input-disconnect circuitry, rectification and hold-up energy storage at 48V, can supply 40kW of power within 1U of rack space. The RFM power tablet package provides adept thermal management for advanced cooling, including liquid cooling, of high-power server racks for demanding HPC and AI inference and learning applications.

Key Features

  • Power tablet form-factor enables higher density rack AC configurations
  • Modular power architecture for AI data centers
  • Power tablet package enables advanced cooling
  • Inherently fault-tolerant array for high-power
  • Configurable input allows systems to operate from any 3-phase input worldwide

48V (including 54VDC) distribution is the emerging standard in high-power racks utilizing smaller-gauge wiring, and achieving substantially lower distribution losses, than legacy 12VDC distribution. In combination with Vicor 48V Power-on-Package (“PoP”) and 48V Direct-to-PoL solutions, the RFM enables dense and efficient end-to-end power system solutions, from 3-phase AC to sub-1V AI processors at the point-of-load.
