AMP consortium adds a 60A standard

The Architects of Modern Power consortium has announced an additional standard aimed at establishing common mechanical and electrical specifications for the development of advanced power conversion technology for distributed power systems.

Called gigaAMP, the standard addresses 60A devices supplied in an LGA footprint measuring 25.1 x 14.1mm. The consortium says this builds on the picoAMP standard, which defined standards for non isolated platforms with ratings ranging from 6A to 18A.

“The gigaAMP standard is a continuation of the AMP Group’s efforts to establish industry standards that cover every aspect of board level digital power technology,” said Martin Hägerdal, president of Ericsson Power Modules.

“The addition of this standard at 60A helps to further address the growing demands on performance, complexity and flexibility in intelligent power supply infrastructures,” added Steve Pimpis, president and CEO of Murata Power Solutions.
