Power-One Announces Digital Power Management Patent License With TDK-Lambda

January 16, 2012 by Jeff Shepard

Power-One, Inc. and TDK-Lambda Corp. announced that they entered into a non-exclusive, worldwide, license agreement for Digital Power Technology (DPT) patents from Power-One.

Power-One’s Digital Power Technology applies to DC-DC Board Mount Power applications in the server, storage, networking, and telecom industries, where board densities are increasing and the power management solutions required to drive FPGA’s, ASICS, DSP’s and other semiconductor devices are becoming more and more complex.

DPT drives increased system efficiency, improved design flexibility, faster time to market, decreased footprint size and lower system costs. It also enables telemetry capability, providing access to critical information including current, temperature and voltage. Telemetry allows the system to accurately monitor its power consumption and thermal performance, enabling designers to easily engineer key features such as system optimization, fault detection and predictive maintenance features into their end products.
