Modern power architectures are advancing miniaturization of semiconductors and other discrete devices. These advancements require migrating to more progressive design topologies to increase density and efficiency. This shift in developing new technology is transforming all facets of the design process. At the same time, the need for components conforming to environmentally friendly standards for international acceptance (Green procurement) provides additional challenges and opportunities.
This white paper examines how Curtis Industries was presented with the challenge of adapting the AC power interface of a Networking Integrated Services Router to a DC power input option. Impending product launch deadlines resulted in an urgent need for a viable connectivity solution.
