Ericsson has unveiled the second model in its 32-bit processor-based FRIDA II 3E* digital Advanced Bus Converter (ABC) family: the BMR457. Following the launch last month of its quarter-brick sibling, the BMR456, the new eighth-brick-format BMR457 delivers unprecedented performance to system architects developing equipment for ICT (Information and Communication Technology) applications that require a small footprint, fast response time, tightly regulated intermediate bus voltages and high efficiency at any point of operation to reduce power consumption.
Like the BMR456, the BMR457 includes a 32-bit ARM-based digital microcontroller that embeds the advanced ‘Ericsson DC/DC Energy Optimizer’ firmware.
This has been developed by Ericsson to guarantee the highest performance at any point of operation from low to high load, which is commonplace when handling data traffic. The ‘Ericsson DC/DC Energy Optimizer’ firmware combines advanced Ericsson Intellectual Property (IP) together with a series of industry-first functionalities to continually optimize switching parameters and reduce energy consumption to an absolute minimum.
