PSMA Power Technology Report Now Available

October 13, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

The Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) announced that the Power Technology Roadmap Report is now available to the power sources industry, projecting the power trends and needs of the end-user community for the next five years. The study is intended to help influence future power supply and component development.

The report synthesizes presentations and discussions from a workshop held earlier this year at APEC 2003, capturing the exchange of ideas and future needs as seen by the participants and their companies. The meetings were attended by many of the industry’s most influential members representing end-users, power supply manufacturers, component suppliers and academia.

The nearly 400-page report focuses on the future of power supply products, including five-year forecast metrics and trends on ac/dc supplies (up to 1,000W), isolated dc/dc brick converters (up to 100W), and non-isolated dc/dc converters (up to 200W). The report takes the reader through the power supply value chain, beginning with an overview of the power supply industry, leading through associated components, manufacturing, marketing, selling and consumption.

The report is available in both hard copy and electronic download at a price of $1,995 for non-members and $495 for members.
