Lineage Power Stingray Series Cost-Effectively Delivers Superior Energy Efficiency

Standards-Based Family of DC-DC Power Converters Boost Efficiency, Increase Reliability and Reduce Risk at Less Than Half the Cost of Previous Generation Products

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) -  Lineage Power Corporation, a Gores Group company and the first name in power, today announced the availability of its new family of Stingray™ isolated DC-DC regulated converter board mounted power modules that provide superior energy efficiency with no thermal derating at a market-leading price point. The Stingray series of modules underscores the need for a new generation of rugged, board-mounted power solutions that can keep 3G and 4G/LTE wireless communications flowing in the most extreme environmental conditions -- without the use of cooling fans.

The first converter module in the Stingray family, the ESTW015A0F, provides 50 Watts of output power with 36-75 Vin and 3.3 Vout in an eighth-brick size. Superior energy efficiency of 91 percent in a low voltage output is complemented with an industry-leading thermal derating -- ensuring no heat sinking and full power in the most demanding of environmental applications with operation up to 85 degrees Celsius (185 degrees Fahrenheit).

The new Stingray series is designed for use within 3G and 4G/LTE cell sites and wireless backhaul networks, triple and quad-play IP/DSL outdoor cabinets, Ethernet IP LANs and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) networks, switching, routing, computing and storage devices. The DC-DC power converters adhere to DOSA specification standards for eighth brick format. The backwards-compatible Stingray series fulfills original equipment manufacturer (OEM) needs for reduced size and cost with superior energy efficiency.

"The new Stingray series enables electronics engineers to achieve their sustainability design goals while optimizing cost, reducing risk and accelerating development schedules," said Niklas Fallgren, vice president and general manager of Lineage Power's Embedded OEM division. "Next-generation products across a wide range of industries can lower operating costs with the small, rugged and powerful Stingray."
