Vicor, leading the power industry in parts availability and customization, launches a new e-commerce service for its customers. Engineers can now purchase prototype quantities of Vicor products online directly from www.vicorpower.com enabling them to get their power system design underway even faster than before. Due to the unique manufacturing capabilities of Vicor, customers can get Vicor products configured to their exact specifications and conveniently sent to them in a matter of days rather than weeks - from brick-based power conversion solutions, V.I Chips to Picor products, accessories and a broad selection of evaluation boards. Throughout the Vicor site there are "Add to Cart" buttons next to the items that can be purchased online. This function is also available in Vicor's various configuration tools where customers can either purchase their configuration immediately or are able to use the "My Designs" feature to retain their items for purchase at a later date. This service is initially offered to customers in Europe and North America who can pay for their purchases via credit card. For customers who would like to get expert advice on their design and want help to select the right solution for their application, Vicor continues to offer Vicor Express service available to all European customers at 00800 8426 7000 (00800 VICOR 000). www.vicoreurope.com .
