Articles and blogs
Keep up to date with all the latest trends in the power and DC/DC converter industry by checking out our latest blogs, articles and stories.
For telecom and datacom centers, power requirements are always growing. More and more processing performance is being squeezed into racks, and power supplies need to keep up. Read more about these challenges and how we solve them.
In power distribution systems, use of an intermediate bus is a way to achieve a best compromise between losses and practicality. The “ideal” bus voltage has varied over the years as conversion and semiconductor technology has advanced.
There has been increasing concern about ‘halogens’ in electronics -continue to read the blog and find out more.
Mounting DC/DC power modules vertically rather than horizontally can free up board area in space-constrained applications without compromising performance. This blog looks at some options.
Semiconductor switch technology promotions are a maze of claims for best efficiency and cost-effectiveness. There is a place for them all, from the humble IGBT through silicon- and silicon-carbide MOSFETs to GaN HEMT cells. Depending on your development schedule, application and budget, each technology can give excellent results. This includes the gate drive which is critical for best performance, both in losses and reliability for all the device types.
There are established ways to generate power rails for end-loads in data centers, but a novel combination of conversion technologies can be used for efficiency, cost and power density gains.
Evaluating the reliability and availability of data center services hinges on performance monitoring. Latest power converters provide valuable real-time data with built-in ‘event data recorders’ - so called ‘black-box’ recording functions
As data center capacity demands increase, the ratio of peak to average power requirements gets wider. This blog looks at the reasons and describes how latest generation DC/DC converters have evolved to provide the necessary power.
Immersive cooling has been around for many years in demanding applications and is now becoming attractive in commericial and industrial applications. There is a natural concern about the compatibility of the available fluids with the materials used in mass-produced products such as DC/DC converters.
There is a huge number of DC/DC converters available these days – some provide isolation while others are non-isolated. In this article we will take a look at what this means to designers when putting together power solutions.
With the rapidly advancing 5G cellular wireless networks, high efficiency, reliability and power density are performance characteristics that remain vital for RF Power Amplifier applications.
