Ericsson Power Modules announced that they have signed the PMBus adopter agreement, becoming a full member of the Power Management Bus Implementers Forum (PMBus-IF). Already a member of the POLA and DOSA alliances, this latest signing puts the company in a strong position to contribute to the development of a future, standardized digital power management platform that will benefit its customers in the short and long term, said the press release.

"Ericsson Power Modules' membership to PMBus is a natural step in our strategy to contribute to our customers' success by always offering the most suitable solution to power today's and tomorrow's applications," said Marketing Director Patrick Le Fhvre. "We are proud to become a PMBus member, joining forces and sharing ideas with other leading companies in the quest for a standardized digital power management platform."

PMBus is an open-standard digital power management protocol that facilitates communication with a power converter or other device by fully defining the transport and physical interface, and the command language needed to accomplish this.

Under the System Management Interface Forum (SMIF), the PMBus protocol initiative was created in October 2004 when Artesyn Technologies, Astec Power and six of the world's top semiconductor manufacturers recognized that the lack of a suitable standard was inhibiting the adoption of an all-digital power management solution. With 19 of the power industry's leading companies now on board, PMBus is rapidly gaining industry-wide acceptance.
