Digital Power Comes of Age (.PDF Download)

Aug. 10, 2015

Distributed-power architectures now dominate in power-system designs for high-performance datacom and telecom networks, as well as data-center equipment. The change from centralized power—a  simple ac-dc power supply, perhaps with battery backup, feeding the cards in a system rack—came  about by necessity. Semiconductor operating voltages decreased as ever-smaller process nodes were developed to boost the processing power of ICs. The ICs became more powerful and their lower operating voltages demanded higher current...
