  • Cost effective (Lower development cost)
  • Quality, high reliability products
  • Gain a competitive advantage

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has you Covered!

While Artesyn Embedded Technologies offer a broad range of standard products that address the needs of many industries, there are occasions when a standard product does not address all your application requirements. Also, a custom solution does not always make economic sense, especially in terms of your schedule needs. This is where the knowledge and expertise of Artesyn Embedded Technologies really pays dividends. By using proven standard platforms as building blocks, we can develop cost-effective turnkey power solutions that meet your exact needs.

Value-added Engineering

There may be occasions when a modified standard product does not address all your power needs, but a full custom power supply is too expensive, or does not meet your schedule needs. This is where the knowledge and expertise of Artesyn Embedded Technologies, combined with our diverse product range, really pays dividends. By using a combination of modified power supplies, proven standard platform building blocks and application-specific software, we can develop cost-effective turnkey power solutions that meet your exact needs.
