Celestica's HUS42-096 half-brick and QUS20-120-NVDR quarter-brick DC/DC converters, part of the company's IBC series, are designed to optimize intermediate-bus architectures. The 460-watt HUS42-096 has a 5:1 input/output voltage ratio (the first half-brick of its kind, according to the company), and thus will provide 7 to 11 volts (often considered the "sweetspot" for highest overall system efficiency) from a 36- to 55-volt input. The QUS20-120-NVDR quarter-brick is the vertical-mount version of

One drawback to the new suite of features being added to mobile phones is the higher current consumption for display backlighting. Color LCDs require white light to provide backlighting for the best clarity, and typical white LEDs consume substantially more current than the green ones used in first-generation mobile phones. A Semtech engineer offers this advisory.
