Carlsbad, Calif. -- Emerson Network Power has introduced the DS460S-3 bulk front end AC-DC power supply that can achieve a high typical conversion efficiency of 92 percent at 50 percent full load, meeting the Climate Savers Computing Gold standard.
Applications include distributed power architectures, such as computing, storage, networking, datacom and test and measurement systems.
The DS460S-3 has a 1U x 2U form factor, measuring 7.75 inches (196.9 mm) in length and 1.6 inches (40.5 mm) in height. Rated at 460 W, the DS460S-3 power supply generates a main payload output of 12 Vdc and an auxiliary output of 12 Vdc for powering standby circuitry. It features a wide 90 to 264 Vac input voltage range and employs active power factor correction to minimize input harmonic current distortion and ensure compliance with the international EN61000-3-2 standard, with a power factor of 0.99 typical.
Digitally programmable, the DS460S-3 is equipped with an I2C interface available with industry-standard PMBus communications protocol. The DS460S-3 also features a built-in low noise "smart" fan and holds safety certifications from UL/cUL, NEMKO, CB, and CE.
Pricing: $189 per unit in production quantities.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
