With drastically increasing demands for high-density computing applications for cloud computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and gaming, the electric energy consumption of data centers could soon consume 8% of the world’s power production. A large portion of this consumption is caused by losses from inefficient power delivery architectures. With their smaller footprint, higher switching frequency and improved efficiency, GaN FETs and ICs enable higher power density, and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) in the data center.
Have a question about data center applications?
48 V power distribution for datacenters is more efficient than 12 V systems, allowing for higher power density, improved reliability, simplified power delivery, and reduced cooling requirements.
AC/DC converters must be designed to operate with high efficiency, reliability, and compact size to meet the demanding requirements of data centers.
Our growing portfolio of chip scale and PQFN packaged FETs and ICs provide engineers with maximum design flexibility, higher efficiency, and higher power density for improved overall datacenter performance and cost.
Our GaN technology has accumulated billions of hours of successful field experience in 48 V power systems for data centers. GaN FETs have a high level of ruggedness which is particularly important in data centers where uptime and reliability are critical.
EPC offers a comprehensive suite of design tools and reference designs that have been optimized for the most common topologies used in data center applications, including buck converters, boost converters, buck-boost converters, and full-bridge converters. These ready-made designs are intended to help engineers reduce time-to-market and development costs.
