Data centers are crucial for business continuity and reliable communications. Texas Instruments (TI)
provides performance power management solutions, enabling high availability and efficiency when
powering processors for data centers and rack servers. Advanced processors and platforms, such as the
Intel® VR13.HC, need point-of-load solutions for memory, low-power CPU rails, and 3.3 V and 5 V rail
requirements from a 12 V input bus. This document intends to highlight DC/DC converters and describe
their features addressing performance processors power requirements. For specific information about Intel
processors and their power requirements, log on to the Intel Resource and Design Center. Contact TI for
information about multiphase controllers and power stages designed specifically for the VR13.HC platform.
