MOSFET power losses and how they affect power-supply efficiency

  Power-supply efficiency is a critical criterion for today’s cloud-infrastructure hardware. The efficiency of the chosen power solutions relates to system power loss and the thermal performance of integrated circuits (ICs), printed circuit boards (PCBs), and other components, which determine the power-usage effectiveness of a data centre.
