Vicor is using its DC-DC converter technology for a system that can rebuild a coral reef
Vicor's DC-DC converter technology is used for a system that can rebuild a coral reef using renewable power.

The PRM buck boost regulator operates over a wide input voltage range and has a zero voltage switching (ZVS) topology, delivering high efficiency and power density. In addition, PRMs are easily paralleled for higher power.

Vicor's FPA DC-DC converter modules are used to rebuild coral reef systems around the world  

The VTM is a fixed ratio, non-regulating resonant converter with high current density. Designed to work together, the PRM tightly regulates the voltage required for the reef and the VTM handles the down conversion and current delivery to the electrodes.

“This unique and complicated application has many constantly changing variables needing precise measurement and control to enable accelerated reef growth” said Will Bateman, the CEO at CCell. “Using Vicor’s FPA we now have a high performing design that we believe is going to make enormous improvements to ecosystems and communities across the entire planet.”
