Ericsson’s Advanced Bus Converter (ABC) footprint is fast becoming a new standard in digitally-controlled power converters. Introduced in 2008, the Ericsson ABC footprint was designed to provide additional functionality to system architects developing advanced power architectures to reduce energy consumption and to increase flexibility in their operation and supply chain.
The Ericsson ABC footprint is used in more than 90% of the installed base of digitally controlled PMBus-based DC/DC products worldwide, making it the de facto industry standard for Advanced Bus Converters. Additionally, a growing number of companies are now developing Ericsson ABC footprint compatible products.
“Growing market adoption and new possibilities offered by this evolving ABC footprint is significant recognition of the efforts achieved by Ericsson R&D to develop a footprint that is ready to meet the expectations of systems architects in the next few years,” said Patrick Le Fèvre, Marketing and Communication Director, Ericsson Power Modules.
