Panasonic Unveils Small Form Factor PSiP Modules

Panasonic (News - Alert) Corporation launched its new power supply in package (PSiP) DC-DC regulator power supply modules that have integrated inductors. They can be used to power communication infrastructure equipment and industrial devices.

These small form factor PSiP series modules can be used to supply power to small installations like that of small cell base stations, servers, surveillance cameras and measurement equipment.

Requiring only a small mounting area, the PSiP’s configuration includes all components for a DC-DC regulator in a single module. The new PSiP power supply modules, NN31000A, NN31001A and NN31002A are designed especially for communications infrastructure equipment including radio base stations, light transceivers, routers, switches and servers.

In addition, the Panasonic PSiPs reduce the time taken for designing appropriate power supply systems and circuit boards for small installations as it incorporates a power source system which is also optimized for heat and noise factors.

Circuit board miniaturization, reduced area for heat and noise generation, stable output voltage with high-speed response that eliminates operational defects are the features included in the small package of the PSiP (Power Supply in Package) DC-DC regulator power supply module.

Previously Panasonic has unveiled eco-friendly solutions such as its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and home energy management (HEM). By leveraging existing power lines and home wiring for two-way communications Panasonic is enabling utilities to deploy a smart grid network that needs minimal construction.

Using Panasonic’s proprietary high-definition power line communication (HD-PLC) the solutions can transmit digital information over power lines that until now only delivered electricity. Instead of Ethernet cables, existing electrical cables in the home can be used to create a next-generation home network.

Panasonic’s HD-PLC platform serves as an Eco model that consumes 90 percent less power than ever before. While realizing low power consumption, the technology is able to provide the stability and security unique to wired communications for a wider variety of devices and uses, including electric vehicle (EV) charging.
