Press Release

The Distributed-power Open Standards Alliance Adds Celestica Power Systems as its Newest Member

June 2 , 2004

Dallas, TX – The Distributed-power Open Standards Alliance (DOSA) is pleased to announce that Celestica Inc. (NYSE, TSX: CLS), a world leader in electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and provider of next-generation power solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), has joined the industry alliance. DOSA was established in February 2004 to ensure future dc-dc product compatibility and standardization within the increasingly fragmented power converter market.

Founded by Tyco Electronics Power Systems, Inc. and SynQor, Inc., DOSA’s mandate is to establish standards over a broad range of power converter form factors, footprints, feature sets and functionality for both non-isolated point-of-load (POL) and isolated applications, including intermediate bus converters.

“Celestica shares DOSA’s goal to establish standards for power converters and offer customers true multiple sourcing options,” said Joseph Coupal, SynQor Executive Vice President, Marketing and Sales. “With the addition of Celestica Power Systems, DOSA continues to gain momentum,” said Sabi Varma, Vice President, Marketing and Business Operations for Tyco Electronics Power Systems. “As the primary beneficiaries, our customers are excited by these efforts and recognize the commitment DOSA has made to ensuring their needs are met.”

Celestica Power Systems is developing its Volant SeriesTM of non-isolated POL converters that will adhere to the DOSA specifications, and also plans to develop a DOSA-compatible sixteenth brick. “We are excited to be part of DOSA and look forward to collaborating with leading power supply manufacturers in the development of compatible and competitive products that meet customer needs,” said Chris Stratas, General Manager, Celestica Power Systems. “By including DOSA standard products in our product portfolio, we are continuing to provide our customers with a broadening range of solutions and multiple sourcing options.”
