New Crucial 16GB Very Low Profile Server Modules Help Reduce Power Consumption and Cooling Costs

Boise, ID, and Glasgow, UK, 24 May, 2011 – Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today introduced Crucial 16GB DDR3-1066MHz Very Low Profile (VLP) RDIMM memory modules, commonly used in blade servers and to run memory intensive applications such as server virtualisation. With a PCB height of only 18.75mm, the VLP form factor is designed to reduce the space taken by memory and allow for greater airflow through the body of the server, assisting in the reduction of thermal power consumption and ultimately contributing to reduced cooling costs. Additionally, the new 16GB density enables … Read More → "New Crucial 16GB Very Low Profile Server Modules Help Reduce Power Consumption and Cooling Costs"

XP Power introduces open-frame 150 W AC-DC power supplies aimed at volume applications

XP Power announced today the VFT series of low cost 150 W single output AC-DC power supplies aimed at high volume cost-sensitive applications. Packaged within the industry standard 3″ x 5″ format and measuring just 1.4″ high (76.2 x 127.0 x 33.2 mm), the VFT150 series can provide a full 150 W output when force-cooled with only 15 CFM airflow. Alternatively using convection cooling alone, the units can provide up to 100 W output.

The VFT150 operates from a universal input of 90-264 VAC and has active power factor correction. Providing the nominal outputs of +5, +12, +15, + 24 or +48 VDC, these units comply with XP Power’s ‘green power’ limits … Read More → "XP Power introduces open-frame 150 W AC-DC power supplies aimed at volume applications"
