High power density systems demand high current converters

High power density systems demand high current converters
Steve Knoth, Senior Product Marketing Engineer, Power Products at Linear Technology now part of Analog Devices discusses here how high power density systems demand high current converters. The expanding market for high current, low voltage digital ICs reached $9.2bn in 2016. This group of digital ICs includes microcontrollers and microprocessors (µC & µP), programmable logic devices (PLDs), digital signal processors (DSPs), application specific integrated circuit (ASICs), programmable logic devices (PLDs) and graphics processor units (GPUs).
