electronica 2014: Digital power consortium unveils first standards
The newly formed Architects of Modern Power (AMP) consortium – established by CUI, Ericsson Power Modules and Murata Power Solutions to address and define the future of intelligent, distributed, digital power ecosystems – has announced its first set of standards.
The four standards, revealed at electronica in Munich, cover digital point of load (POL) and advanced bus DC/DC converters.
Two have been defined for digital POL converters. The microAMP specification covers supplies rated at 20 to 25A in vertical and horizontal configurations, while the megaAMP defines requirements for 40 to 50A vertical and horizontal units.
For advanced bus DC/DC converters, the ABC-ebAMP standard relates to advanced bus bricks measuring 58.42 x 22.66mm and ranging from 264 to 300W.
For quarter brick supplies, measuring 58.42 x 36.83mm and ranging from 420 to 468W, the Group has defined the ABC-qbAMP standard. These standards detail mechanical footprints, features, and configuration files.
AMP group spokesperson and CUI vice president of advanced power, Mark Adams, commented: "Following the launch of Architects of Modern Power last month, the release of these standards marks an important first step on our shared technology roadmap."
Patrick Le Fèvre, marketing communications director at Ericsson Power Modules, added: "Providing a true multi sourced, high efficiency power ecosystem with exceptional supply chain reliability enables continuity of production for our customers.
"We are excited to make this advanced technology available in a way that allows wider adoption than would be possible with single source solutions."
Products meeting these standards are available now from the AMP group and will be on display at electronica on the CUI booth (B2-113), Murata booth (B5-107), and MEV booth (A4-260).
