Infineon has unveiled a number of new power supply unit (PSU) solutions to meet the energy demands of AI data centers.  The company notes that the power supply units will combine silicon (Si), silicon carbide (SiC), and gallium nitride (GaN) in a “strategic configuration,” which the company said will allow its 8kW PSU to achieve benchmark efficiency and power density for 100 W/in3, compared to 32 W/in3 with the 3kW unit.

“With the unveiling of our roadmap and our latest development, the 8kW PSU, Infineon continues to lead the way in providing innovative semiconductor solutions based on Si, SiC, and GaN that address the evolving demands of AI infrastructure,” said Adam White, division president power and sensor systems, Infineon.

He added: “This latest addition to our portfolio and the 12kW PSU on the horizon exemplify Infineon’s commitment to delivering benchmark results in high-performance, efficiency, and reliability for the data center and AI ecosystem.”
