How to improve the energy efficiency of data center, optimize thermal design, reduce the size and cost of power supply system, and stabilize and reliable power supply capacity, is a big pain point in the construction of new infrastructure data center. It is difficult to design a power supply system with low core voltage of 0.6v-0.8v and 50a-800a ultra-high current and high stability power supply system in a narrow space, which requires high reliability and high efficiency DC-DC power conversion solutions of top-level power supply. Modularization of ADI and low-noise power supply technology are the main power behind these systems, which can help improve data Efficiency, density and reliability of the center. In addition, the ADI board level power system manages PSM, which can dynamically adjust and record the power supply of the data center core chip, greatly optimizing energy efficiency while maintaining reliability.

“Unlike general-purpose aerospace grade satellites, commercial LEO satellites are more cost-effective and should be relatively small in size and easier to manufacture, which helps to improve the deployment economy of partners and potential operators. At the same time, low-cost commercial satellites open the market to new participants and innovators, and the small-scale, low-cost, high-reliability integrated circuits behind them also contribute greatly. ” Cai Zhenyu stressed the bottom logic for the success of the commercial satellite industry.

All of these, ADI can play a key role in enabling high-performance signal chain products which are in the top position in the global aerospace market. In addition, the high-frequency transceiver platform technology owned by Adi can achieve higher selection rate in the satellite communication frequency band. With its small size and low power consumption, the overall size of the transceiver can be reduced by an order of magnitude, which provides a large number of solution examples for solving the next generation satellite communication problems.
