Wireless Multimode Access System
A major provider of wireless infrastructure equipment turned to Artesyn for a combination of DC-DC converters when looking for board mounted power (BMP) solutions for their next generation multimode access system design, which leverages Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology. This unit provides LTE, WCDMA and UMTS technology in a single system. The company selected Artesyn’s AGF800 and AVQ100.
Housed in a full-brick format, the AGF800 series offers greater than 95% peak efficiency and a wide input range of 36 to 75 V. The customer selected Artesyn’s 48 V model (AGF800-48S48), which is designed to match the increased power density and higher efficiency approach of high power wireless base station (BTS) deployments using GaN technology.
For the digital communications signal processing subsystem, the customer selected Artesyn’s AVQ100 series of 100W quarter-brick isolated DC-DC converters. Having a standard quarter-brick as a common form-factor across multiple product lines made it easier for the customer to integrate the AVQ100 series into its system and the baseplate option simplified thermal management by fixing to the IP65 sealed enclosure’s own heatsink. What’s more, Artesyn has ensured the AVQ100 series is a cost-sensitive design for this competitive market.
Cloud Computing Servers
One of the world’s leading suppliers of servers for cloud computing wanted a reliable power supply with innovative design from a trusted source. Artesyn’s experts collaborated with the customer’s R&D team to rapidly modify an existing leading-edge design to meet their needs. The resulting 1200 watt server power supply offers high performance, adaptability and reliability. This product will allow the customer to focus on developing and designing differentiated cloud computing offerings without worrying about power conversion.
