IR licenses digital power technology from Power One
International Rectifier has licensed digital power technology (DPT) from Power-One.
The digital power architecture is used in designs based on FPGAs, Asics and DSPs, which require multiple voltage rails and output voltages dropping below 1V.
DPT also enables telemetry capability, providing access to critical information including current, temperature and voltage.
“It has become clear over the last several years that the leading server, performance desktop, communications and netcom customers are transitioning or have completed their transition from analog power to digital power,” said Deepak Savadatti, v-p and general manager IR’s Enterprise Power Business Unit.
“This agreement validates our strong commitment to continue International Rectifier’s leadership in the digital power management space,” said Savadatti.
“With the expanding number of leading power supply and semiconductor companies partnering with Power-One, we continue to expand the market by providing energy-efficient technologies with increased functionality for our customers,” said Edward Carter, v-p and general manager of the industrial and transportation business unit.
