Product How-to:The Path to 100A at the point-of-load, and Beyond(ポイントオブロードでの100Aへの道とその先)

このEDNの記事で、CUIのエンジニアリング担当部長であるFariborz Musaviは、現在の高度なプロセッサに電力を供給する問題の増大と、急激に高まる電流要件、コア電圧の降下、およびさらに厳密化する電圧公差に対応するための革新的な解決策の必要性について述べています。

The article begins, "Moore's Law has brought us immense amounts of computing power through advanced microprocessors and FPGAs.Massive increases in transistor count have made it possible to implement multiple high-speed processors on a single die, each running at speeds up to 3GHz.But these advances in density and performance have increased the number of problems that face engineers working on power delivery for these loads."

"But the maximum power envelope of server processors and FPGAs is still in the order of tens of watts, and pushing over 100W for the highest-performance products.The result is a current demand that is beginning to exceed the 100A level at the point-of-load (POL).Using traditional power-conversion architectures, this demand results in the need for larger components able to handle the high stresses involved."

The article then dives into the traditional approach of how to overcome the obstacles of meeting this increasing power demand.
