Digital power is generating a lot of buzz nowadays. It is essentially controlling of a switching regulator using a digital interface. It could encompass controlling output voltage, switching frequency, sequencing of a multiple-channel supply through a 12C or other digital bus. Margining, startup, power down, and power up all of them can be controlled by one or many digital signals. This convenience has led to analog switching regulators being controlled by a digital interface.
The promising digital power electronics market is set become worth a few billions in the next couple of years.
Ability to Lessen Power Consumption Drives Uptake of Digital Power Electronics
The biggest USP of digital power is its ability to bring down power consumption and tackling the rising complexity of modern electronic systems. A range of areas such as smart handheld devices, data servers, digital power management, wireless base stations, and control offer real-time intelligence that allow developers to build power systems that can automatically adapt to the environment to up efficiency.
Intelligent digital power brings about automatic changes in the load and system temperature. In this manner it brings about energy savings with adaptive dead-time control. Such benefits are fuelling the global digital power electronics market.

The different types of digital power electronics available in the market can be broadly categorized into AC-DC convertors and DC-DC convertors. The digital power electronics are seeing uptake in consumer electronics, communication, industrial, computer and office, LED lighting, military and aerospace, and others.
Despite Consolidation, Digital Power Electronics Market Sees Healthy Competition
The global digital power electronics market over the course of the last few years has seen somewhat of a consolidation. Many of the entities that began as digital control providers exclusively have been acquired by conventional analog control based providers over time. Despite this, the global digital power electronics market has remained competitive owing to thrust by key stakeholders on introducing more power efficient materials, namely GaN and SiC.
North America and Europe Hold Dominant Share Owing to Presence of Key Players
With respect to geography, North America at present dominates theglobal digital power electronics market. This is because of several reasons. Those include the presence of numerous key players in the region who are focused on product development. The early uptake of latest technology and an advanced, modernized economy running on state-of-the-art technology is also having a positive impact on the North America market. For the same reasons, Europe has emerged as another prominent region in the global digital power electronics market. Presence of large data centers in the two regions has generated demand in their markets.
In the near term, however, Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as a promising region owing to soaring sales of smart devices.
