Eliminating the Last Inch with Power on Package

We recently announced our new Power on Package technology that enables manufacturers of CPUs, GPUs and ASICs (XPUs) to place power components either on the substrate of their device (on package) or extremely close to the XPU socket. Eliminating the “last inch” between the regulator and the XPU makes possible the level of higher performance required for today’s most demanding applications. The Need for Higher XPU Performance The demand for higher performance computing and communications systems is being driven by applications such as the analysis of big data, video rendering and artificial intelligence (for...
