Ericsson Announces 2nd Gen DC/DC Telecom Power Modules

Ericsson unveiled its second digital-power Advanced Bus Converter platform for use with board-mounted DC/DC power modules in telecom and datacom applications.

The new FRIDA II DC/DC power modules are designed for lower power dissipation in end-customer systems – decreasing the requirement for hard cooling and delivering higher reliability, lower CO2 emissions and lower Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO2). The first generation FRIDA modules were introduced in 2008.

Ericsson said the new design leverages a 32-bit ARM7TDMI-S microprocessor core, offers a tightly regulated output voltage (2%) across the entire operation, and includes proprietary firmware to manage complex scenarios and the challenges faced by DC/DC board-mounted power supplies in telecom and datacom applications,
