Adds EUROCOMP as Strategic Partner; Complete Lineup of DC-DC, AC-DC Power Conversion ICs Now Available for Central European Customers
NUREMBERG, Germany, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Booth #355 – The European Union (EU) has established the world's most ambitious and comprehensive set of energy efficiency policies and regulations, and fabless power semiconductor company Helix Semiconductors has taken notice. The company has added EUROCOMP Elektronik GmbH as its central European manufacturer’s representative, a move that makes Helix Semiconductors’ innovative power conversion integrated circuits (ICs) readily available to leading customers in Europe. Measured results for these ICs and product demonstrations can be seen next week at the world’s leading exhibition and conference for power electronics, renewable energy, and energy management, PCIM Europe, held from May 7-9 in Nuremberg, Germany.
In recent years, the EU has adopted measures to improve energy efficiency – including the Ecodesign Directive, in which its agencies are currently establishing efficiency criteria for power supplies. These criteria are expected to become decidedly more stringent regarding standby or vampire loads (electronic products that are plugged in but are not in use or are using very low power) – and power supplies built using conventional methods will fall short. Representing a quantum shift in the power management industry, Helix Semiconductors’ patented MuxCapacitor® (MuxCap™) and Capacitive Isolation (CapIso™) are the enabling technologies behind smaller, cooler and more efficient products.
“The need for better energy efficiency is a global issue that hits home all over the world,” noted Harold A. Blomquist, president and CEO of Helix Semiconductors. “The central European market is large and diverse, and our new, strategic partnership with EUROCOMP increases our reach in the region. The EU has made clear its long-term commitment to a more energy efficient future, and our own commitment to finding a better way of powering the world led us to create the products that are fundamentally changing the power conversation.”
Helix Semiconductors’ lineup of highest power density, cost-effective architectures for AC-DC and DC-DC (isolated and non-isolated) power supplies is now available through EUROCOMP Elektronik GmbH. Centrally located in Bad Nauheim near the Frankfurt am Main Airport, EUROCOMP has been providing active and passive components for the power conversion industry for more than 30 years.
