Derek Boyd, chief executive officer of the National Microelectronics Institute, commented, “In such a tough year for start-ups, NMI was delighted by the quality of applications for this award. Although it was a close-run competition, Powervation emerged as a clear winner. Powervation was selected because its market focus and business model seem to be exactly right. Environmental stewardship and carbon reduction is a very hot area and the company has tremendous market potential with excellent revenue prospects. Congratulations go to Powervation, and NMI will, of course, continue to cheer and champion all the great start-ups in the UK and Ireland.”
Powervation’s differentiating technology includes a unique algorithm that monitors output voltage on a cycle-by-cycle basis and automatically compensates for variations in line, load, capacitance and inductance. For designers of complex electronic systems used in Computing, Networking and Storage applications, this innovation, in addition to other proprietary methods, delivers better system efficiency, performance and reliability, along with energy savings of up to 30 percent. It also reduces design time—from weeks to days—and cuts total system cost of ownership by more than 30 percent.
Powervation provides digital power IC solutions that optimize power-supply performance and efficiencies for manufacturers of electronic systems used in Computing, Networking and Storage applications. The company’s Auto-control™ technology brings fully automatic adaptive control to DC-DC conversion for the first time, in a reliable, scalable package that reduces design complexity and cost, and accelerates time-to-market.
