New Technical Support Center (Taiwan) in Asia is Now Open – 亚太区台湾技术支持中心正式运营

New Technical Support Center (Taiwan) in Asia is Now Open – 亚太区台湾技术支持中心正式运营

Taiwan is an exciting market for us, with huge potential opportunities, especially in computing, industrial power and communications applications. To help power designers in the region, we have opened a new Technical Support Centre (TSC), where our experts will assist engineers in the development of advanced power management schemes for powering microprocessors and DDR memory, including Intel VR12/12.5 specification-compliant direct 48 V-to-processor power conversion techniques. The new TSC opened today, with, and we spoke to Asia VP, Eric Wong, and Taiwan TSC Leader, Francis Weng., about the significance of...

Robert Gendron Explains Why 48 V is the New 12 V in this On-Demand Webinar

Robert Gendron Explains Why 48 V is the New 12 V in this On-Demand Webinar

Power system designers in a variety of applications, including telecoms, data centers, automotive, industrial, lighting and aerospace, have long relied on a 12 V intermediate (or hub) bus to distribute electrical power. With increasing demands for higher output powers in smaller spaces, and the need to improve efficiency, 12 V is rapidly being replaced with 48 V. By moving to a higher voltage, engineers reduce the I2R loss in cabling, improving power efficiency. The smaller, lighter cabling is also cheaper, offers easier routing of power, and enables further energy savings, particularly...
