TDK-Lambda High-Current Power Module Uses Powervation Digital Controller
|By Business Wire
|May 29, 2014 04:25 AM EDT
Powervation Ltd. (www.powervation.com),
the leader in Intelligent Digital Power™ IC solutions, today announced
that its PV3012 digital controller is being used by new TDK-Lambda iJB
Series high-current digital POL modules.
The iJB series products support low-voltage, high-current operation
while providing ±0.5% set-point accuracy over line, load, and
temperature range. While the PMBus functionality of the module provides
real-time telemetry of voltage, current, and temperature and enables
full programmability of the DC/DC converter, the iJB series products
also employ function setting pins, enabling them to be used in non-PMBus
applications. The target applications for the iJB series include:
servers, routers and other Information & Communication Technology (ICT)
equipment, T&M and industrial equipment.
Comments David Norton, Vice President of Marketing, TDK-Lambda Americas
Inc.: “Using Powervation’s intelligent auto-tuning technology,
Auto-Control®, the iJB POL modules bring better dynamic
performance and system stability to the application - autonomously
managing circuit and load variations due temperature, component
tolerances, ageing and board impedances.”
Powervation’s Auto-Control® is the
industry’s leading intelligent auto-tuning technology. The patented
adaptive compensation technology optimizes dynamic performance and
system stability in real-time without requiring any noise injection or
the drawbacks of periodic techniques. This is a key benefit for modules
and other designs that drive unknown or variable output loads, and
addresses the challenges of load parameter drift that occurs over
temperature and time.
Comments Powervation’s CEO, Mike McAuliffe: “TDK- Lambda’s iJB series
delivers industry-leading power density with this 60 A solution
requiring only one square inch of board space. Optimized system and
component design and deployment of the advanced digital control features
provided by Powervation’s PV3012, has resulted in higher efficiency &
reliability, faster transient performance and precision voltage control
over all conditions.”
The iJB Series POL module is available now (www.tdk-lambda.com/about/press/20140410_1.html).
The PV3012 and other digital control ICs are available from Powervation.

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights.
At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure.
For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
