Vicor Corporation was incorporated in Delaware in 1981. The Company designs, develops, manufactures and markets modular power components and complete power systems. Power systems are incorporated into virtually all electronic equipment. In equipment utilizing Alternating Current (“AC”) voltage from a primary source, a power system converts AC voltage into the stable Direct Current (“DC”) voltage necessary to power subsystems and/or individual applications or “loads”. In many electronic devices, this DC voltage may be further converted to one or more lower voltages required by a range of loads. The Company’s business segments are organized by key product lines: Brick Business Unit, VI Chip Business Unit and Picor Business Unit. Its Brick Business Unit segment designs, develops, manufactures and markets modular power converters in two formats: the Company’s well-established encapsulated modules, known as bricks, and its newer line of modular power converters that incorporate the Company’s VI Chip technology into innovative packaging, which the Company markets as VI Brick modules. The BBU also designs, develops, manufactures and markets a line of “configurable” products, which are complete power supplies assembled using its modular power components. The Company’s VI Chip Business Unit consists of VI Chip Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary that designs, develops, manufactures and markets a range of advanced power conversion components, including those that enable its Factorized Power Architecture. Its Picor Business Unit (“Picor”) consists of Picor Corporation, a majority-owned subsidiary of Vicor. Picor is a fabless (i.e., it utilizes third parties to manufacture its products) designer, developer, and marketer of high performance integrated circuits and related products for use in a variety of power system applications. The Company’s products are sold worldwide to customers ranging from smaller, independent manufacturers of highly specialized electronic devices to larger OEMs and their contract manufacturers. The customer applications it addresses include, in alphabetical order, aerospace and defense electronics, enterprise and high performance computing, industrial automation, telecommunications and networking infrastructure, test and measurement instrumentation, and vehicles and transportation. The power conversion industry is highly competitive. It remains highly fragmented, despite significant consolidation during the prior decade. Several of these competitors have significantly greater financial and marketing resources and longer operating histories than the Company does.
