Commenting on first quarter performance, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Bookings may remain weak until AI OEMs capture the benefits of advanced Power Distribution Networks (“PDNs”) with Lateral-Vertical PDNs using existing 4G FPA modules.”

“Progress with automotive applications using 4G modular solutions at up to 150kW is paving the way for production ramps starting in 2025 which will complement our growth opportunity with AI in data centers.”

“With the imminent completion of our first Converter-housed-in-Package (“ChiP”) foundry, 5G FPA enabling scalable, high efficiency Vertical PDNs on the critical path of advanced AI systems, and automotive electrification driving broad acceptance of ChiPs, I have high expectations about Vicor’s future growth and profitability.”
