Celestica Power Systems Joins DOSA

June 01, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

Celestica Power Systems (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) announced the company's membership in the Distributed-Power Open Standards Alliance (DOSA), an industry alliance formed in February 2004. Founded by Tyco Electronics Power Systems Inc. and SynQor Inc., DOSA's mandate is to establish standards over a broad range of power converter form factors, pin-outs, feature sets and functionality for both non-isolated, point-of-load (POL) and isolated applications, including intermediate bus converters.

As a new member of DOSA, Celestica Power Systems is developing its Volant Series™ that will be DOSA compatible. The non-isolated POL converters offer cost-effective solutions for telecommunications and high-end computing applications in industry-standard pin-outs and feature sets. In addition to developing the DOSA standard sixteenth-brick, Celestica will also continue to market and support its new high-density S Class isolated dc-dc converter, which encompasses a smaller footprint (1.1 in x 0.9 in).

"We are excited to be part of DOSA and look forward to collaborating with leading power supply manufacturers in the development of compatible and competitive products that meet customer needs," said Chris Stratas, general manager of Celestica Power Systems. "By including DOSA standard products in our product portfolio, we are continuing to provide our customers with a broadening range of solutions and multiple sourcing options."
