Durable, Disaster-Proof Data Centers

How did data centers do during the recent spate of disasters? Just fine, thanks to good planning. The cloud is a great repository for critical information, but in the event of a fire, hurricane, earthquake, or other disaster, that information is only as safe as the data center in which it’s stored. This summer, disasters Read More >>

Contemplating a Switch to 400 VDC for Data Centers

Direct current saves time, money, energy, space, and the environment. All we need to get there is new standards. Jonas Bachmann, SCHURTER R&D Engineer for Appliance Couplers Converting, transforming, converting, transforming — vast amounts of unused electricity simply disappear in data centers. Switching the power supply to direct current could bypass a large proportion of Read More >>

High-Speed Signals Take the High Road

Very early computers were a mass of discrete point-to-point wires. The combination of physics and economics is bringing that interconnect architecture back full circle. Design engineers have been grappling for years with the challenge of propagating ever-increasing signal rates in printed circuit boards. As data rates pushed into RF regions, signal modeling transitioned from simple Read More >>

How Will Connectors Deliver Terabit Speeds?

As the IoT drives the demand for faster networks, the need for one-terabit speeds is just around the corner.   The march to ever-faster data transfer has been an assumed objective since the development of the first computer. Information transmitted at the rate of kilobits per second (kb/s) evolved to megabits per second (Mb/s), which Read More >>
