Infineon introduces Power System Reliability Modeling to reduce power shortages and blackouts in data center systems

Infineon Technologies AG introduces Power System Reliability Modeling, an innovative solution addressing the increasing challenges faced by data centers and telecom infrastructures due to power supply failures in the system. With 39 percent of downtimes attributed to power outages and an average cost of $687,700 per downtime, the need for seamless operations and mitigation of financial impact is urgent. 

By integrating Infineon’s power monitoring solution, organizations can enhance operational resilience, reduce their carbon-footprint and achieve substantial cost savings. The offering consists of an algorithm running on a digital power controller, thus integrating software and hardware. This is in line with Infineon’s strategic approach to provide customers with comprehensive system solutions that include both semiconductor devices and matching software tools. Target applications of the solution include DCDC converters, ACDC rectifiers and IBC modules utilized in data centers, AI servers, GPUs, and telecom networks.

Power System Reliability Modeling acts as a bridge between component and system reliability. It enables real-time power supply health monitoring of the system and lifetime estimation based on dynamic system operating parameters, a power supply system model, and a reliability prediction procedure in digital power controllers by Infineon. This solution ensures improved device utilization and data-driven maintenance recommendations, translating into enhanced profitability and reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Customers benefit from real-time system diagnostics for their power supply as well as powerful system reliability-based decisions and quality assurance. The solution is easy to use and integrate into existing designs.

“The Power System Reliability Modeling represents a pivotal step for Infineon and its customers towards reliable and stable power supply in data centers,” said Adam White, Division President Power & Sensor Systems at Infineon. “Following our Product to System approach, the solution focuses on delivering hardware integrated with advanced software capabilities. This approach not only expands product capabilities and scope, but also empowers our customers to create more value and scale their operations faster.”
