Vicor Opens Power Module 'fab'

News

Vertically-integrated foundry delivers new capacity to manufacture power modules for AI, EVs, comms and other high-growth markets

Vicor has opened a new power module manufacturing facility in Andover, Massachusetts. Described as the world's first ChiP (Converter housed in Package) fabrication facility, or 'ChiP fab', it will enable scalable, automated, cost-effective manufacturing of power modules in the United States.

With its new ChiP foundry, Vicor says it has takes a major step toward realising its vision to enable high‑performance, modular power system solutions capable of satisfying demanding power requirements.

“Our new ChiP fab integrates all of the process steps necessary to manufacture high‑density power modules in wafer-like panels with short cycle time and flexible capacity,” said Mike McNamara, Vicor VP of operations.

The new, vertically-integrated ChiP fab is said use patented fabrication processes that differentiate Vicor power modules by enabling the most power-dense and energy efficient solutions. The ChiPs are manufactured in panels (see above) using process steps analogous to semiconductor wafer fabs.
