Latest News & Events

November 2005 - Dr. Scott Strand of IBM started introducing this technology at his next monthly e-supplier meeting with the message, "We have taken a look at this technology and, from a theoretical perspective, we see there is some potential advantages that could be realized from this technology. We would like you to take a look at it, have some discussions, and see where you would like to have this go."

March 2006 - The Switched Current Power Converter technology is expanded to include semiconductor device in the form of a simple power integrated circuit. See the "Simple IC" write up.

January 31, 2006 - The Switched Current Power Converter technology to be presented at the Conference on Enterprise Servers and Data Centers: Opportunities for Energy Savings.


Ed Herbert Innovations -A licensing opportunity
Ed Herbert is very active inventor in the area of power conversion.  His most famous invention is the matrix transformer which he licensed in the 1980s.  Since that time he has authored many more patents in the power electronics technology.  

Ed Herbert's latest innovations are two advance performance power converter circuits: 

- The Switched Current Power Converter (SCPC) that provides very high di/dt power source performance, eliminating all of the bulk capacitors presently under and around the microprocessor.

- The Switched Charge Circuit (SCC) that provides very high dv/dt made necessary with the advent of Intel's "Demand Based Switching.

- And augmenting IP such as 
         > Total charge measurement
         > The coaxial transformer
         > Modular design approaches
         > Low loss, low Z interconnect
