Mendham, NJ – Three key pieces of advice from the "2008 Market and Technology Report - Power Supply in a Package - Power Supply on a Chip" follow, according to Joe Horzepa, executive director, Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) . Such innovations ease integration of power supply and power control technologies into various embedded controls.
- Get smaller . In recent years, power supply miniaturization is being increasingly addressed by semiconductor companies through their ability to deliver advanced processing and functional product formats which are referred to as power supply-in-package (PSiP) and power supply-on-chip (PwrSoC).
- Get i ntegrated . This proliferation of functionally-integrated hardware solutions can be seen as an inflection point in the power supply industry which is seeing a dramatic move away from traditional power supply manufacturing (with a focus on the assembly of power supply modules or bricks from discrete components) to an increasing emphasis on power supply products delivered directly from the semiconductor and microelectronics industries.
- Look for new packages and technologies . This trend is being enabled by advances in semiconductor, magnetic, capacitor and packaging materials and technologies that will deliver products operating at multi-MHz frequencies.
The report presents a summary of the leading suppliers in the industry including their initial product offerings and technical approaches to meet the challenges faced in this evolving new class of products, Horzepa concludes.
