The ChiP-set is able to power GPU and OCP Accelerator Module (OAM) Artificial Intelligent (AI) cards.

The current multipliers are homed near the processor to help reduce power distribution network (PDN) losses and higher power system efficiency.

The company’s new tech adds to its Power-on-Package portfolio of Lateral Power Delivery (LPD) solutions.
