NEUBIBERG, Germany, April 26, 2011 - Infineon Technologies has developed the first marketable silver box reference design that enables PC and server power supply units to achieve up to 92.35 percent efficiency, while significantly reducing the material costs. Infineon's solution IFX90ATX300W is based on the latest generation of three ICs (Integrated Circuits) and meets the industry's highest energy efficiency standard: "80 PLUS(R) Platinum". Efficiency indicates what share of the power drawn is actually used. The difference between power input and power output is the power loss, which is converted into heat. High efficiency, therefore, translates into a reduction in power consumption and lowering of electricity bills.
