“Energy saving is uppermost in everyone’s mind these days and Ericsson has demonstrated that digital power is an important enabler to achieve lower energy consumption,” said Patrick Le Fèvre, Marketing and Communication Director, Ericsson Power Modules. “The exceptionally high level of interest in digital power among engineers and power architects is extremely encouraging, and we expect that this new 3E Design Toolbox will reduce both learning time and time-to-market, enabling engineers to quickly and easily optimize energy delivered to core components in their board-level designs.”
The Ericsson 3E Design Toolbox includes five modules, each module is furnished with high- and low-signal connectors, local filtering, and low-impedance sockets to host 3E Point-of-Load converters, Advanced Bus Converters and power interface modules. Comprehensive documentation includes user guide, application notes, design notes and various technical papers that can assist systems board designers to optimize the power configuration to reduce energy consumption. The Ericsson 3E Design Toolbox also includes the 3E Software and additional accessories such as the KEP91017 USB-to-PMBus adaptor.
Each board can be purchased separately as a stand-alone product. The 3E design boards are also available to power systems architects for free hire across the duration of their design period, via the Ericsson (Power Modules) 3E Design Registration process.
