Power Distribution

Power systems in data centers for cloud computing are challenged to provide increased output power, higher power density and energy efficiency. The use of complex digital ICs for artificial intelligence and machine learning is pushing further the power envelope with a strong demand for efficient and highly dense systems solutions.

Digital Power

Data center power requirements are constantly increasing and traditional power systems are no longer sufficient to meet this growing demand. The power distribution chain, from the frontend AC-DC stage to the backend DC-DC power distribution, needs to
