SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wiwynn®, an innovative cloud IT infrastructure provider of high quality computing and storage products, plus rack solutions for data centers, today showcases its latest two-stage 48V solution at the OCP US Summit at booth #A15. The 48V technology is used in data centers to address the growing need for 48V utilization to reduce TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and the increasing power demands from emerging CPUs. Wiwynn designed the advanced two-stage 48V solution for data centers to maximize utilization of existing server design and accelerate the 48V adoption.
Wiwynn’s two-stage 48V power solution is a 48V-to-12V power converter solution based on Renesas Electronics’ new SWitched Capacitor (SWC) converter technology. Wiwynn is the first server provider to develop the complete converter solution and implement it with state-of-the-art OCP (Open Compute Project) accepted servers.
The Renesas SWC converter provides a higher efficiency and cost-effective regulated output voltage to support a wide input supply range (40V to 54V) in the rack. Data centers can benefit from Wiwynn’s implementation of 48V power input to their existing 12V system designs by adding this independent solution right beside the 48V power supply. This breakthrough solution accelerates the adoption of 48V technology in data centers and reduces investment in the development stage while providing high power efficiency.
“Wiwynn is excited to demonstrate a best-in-class two-stage 48V solution with Renesas,” said Dr. Sunlai Chang, Senior Vice President and CTO at Wiwynn.” We foresee the solution accelerating the adoption of 48V technology and wide utilization by customers looking to build modern data centers with existing 12V designs for higher efficiency and better TCO.”
“Renesas’ innovative SWC converter provides a regulated 12V output from a 48V input supply for data center racks,” said Mark Downing, Vice President, Core Power Solutions Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “We are pleased to work with Wiwynn to speed up the market adoption of 48V by offering a power solution with higher efficiency and lower TCO.”
Wiwynn will reveal more details about the two-stage 48V solution at the engineering workshop session of OCP US Summit on March 21st.
