Ericsson power interface module simplifies low-EMI design in ATCA applications

600W quarter-brick power interface module (PIM) converter optimised for Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) based server applications. Low-EMI design meets CISPR Class B with minimal external components. Module delivers 12A output current at 80°C with 1.5m/s (300 LFM) airflow. Extensive range of energy monitoring functionalities via I2C or PMBus.

Ericsson Power Modules today announced the PIM4610PD, an extension of its popular 3E* Power Interface Module (PIM) family that are compliant with the industry-standard quarter-brick footprint. The new module has been optimised especially to simplify design in blade server applications based on ATCA and PICMG 3.7 systems. The module is also highly suited to server and storage systems in any industrial, telecom and data communications application that employs either distributed power or intermediate bus voltage architectures.

Based on Ericsson’s leading-edge energy-optimisation platform, the PIM4610PD operates over an input range of 36V to 75V. The module also offers industry-leading high-power performance delivering 864W with a 54V input, 768W at 48V, and 600W at 37.5V. Efficiency performance is again industry leading – offering up to 98.8% at 600W for the main unit –resulting in reduced energy and cooling costs.

Martin Hägerdal, Head of Ericsson Power Modules, commented: “The PIM4610PD employs Ericsson’s low-EMI design capabilities, which means that an absolute minimum of external filtering components are required by customers developing ATCA-based blade server applications.” The PIM also offers built-in digital monitoring and an extensive range of energy-monitoring functionalities via its I2C/PMBus interface.

* Enhanced Performance, Energy Management, and End-user Value are the key benefits delivered by Ericsson’s range of 3E digitally controlled power modules.
