Servers


Today's industry standard servers utilize 64-bit processors that typically incorporate from 2 to 16 CPU cores. Modern datacenters are stacked with hundreds to thousands of rack mounted servers. The enterprise market also consumes large quantities of servers for corporate applications. In both markets performance, energy efficiency and reliability are the primary operating concerns.



Applications


Power Management

Because servers are typically stacked within a closed environment ranging in size from an office closet to a huge datacenter, power efficiency is a key concern. More efficient power conversion results in less heat generation and higher long term reliability. Higher efficiency can significantly lower operating costs while increasing the utilization of the operating space in large datacenter applications.

We provide the industry's most efficient PMICs for industry standard servers. Please contact a Maxim Sales Representative for more information.

Our state-of-the-art, scalable, 48V direct conversion power distribution solution breaks the efficiency, density and transient performance barrier of the typical two-stage implementation by performing a single-stage conversion (48V-to-load) using integrated power and magnetics. 48V direct-to-load conversion eliminates one power conversion stage and, in rack implementations, reduces distribution power loss by a factor of 16 over 12V architectures.
