The Distributed-power Open Standards Alliance (DOSA) has announced that power-supply manufacturer Wall Industries has joined the industry alliance. DOSA was established in February 2004 to develop standards for dc-dc converters to ensure compatibility and facilitate second sourcing for customers. Alliance membership includes Tyco Electronics Power Systems Inc., SynQor Inc., C&D, Delta, Lambda, Ericsson and Artesyn.
“Our entry into DOSA is an exciting milestone for Wall Industries’ Board Mounted Power effort,” said John Regan, general manager of Wall Industries. “We are looking forward to collaborating with other leading-edge power supply manufacturers in the development of compatible and competitive products that not only better serves our customers’ current needs, but assist their future application requirements as well.”
“DOSA welcomes Wall Industries, as their expertise and participation will enhance DOSA’s ability to better serve customers,” said Sabi Varma, vice president, marketing and R&D at Tyco Electronics Power Systems. “Wall Industries will help contribute to the establishment of new standards for board-mounted power products,” stated Joseph Coupal, executive vice president, marketing and sales at SynQor. “We are very pleased to count on their support and expertise to advance the goals of DOSA.”
Founded by Tyco Electronics and SynQor, DOSA carries the mission to establish standards over a broad range of power converter form factors, footprints, feature sets and functionality for both nonisolated point-of-load (POL) and isolated applications.
