August 11 , 2004

Dallas, TX – The Distributed-power Open Standards Alliance (DOSA) is pleased to announce that Lambda, a leading provider of standard and custom power supply solutions, 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, and its membership includes Tyco Electronics Power Systems, Inc., SynQor, Inc., and Celestica Power Systems.

“We are proud to be part of the DOSA team,” said Bill Steckel, president of Lambda. “DC-DC converter technology is evolving rapidly. By following the open DOSA standards, Lambda's customers will benefit from a clear product roadmap that incorporates Lambda technology to deliver leading-edge industry standard solutions.''

Founded by Tyco Electronics and SynQor, 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.

“Lambda supplements the DOSA membership very well by adding further credibility, additional technical expertise and a strong Asian presence to the alliance,” said Joseph Coupal, executive vice president, marketing and sales for SynQor.

“With the addition of Lambda, DOSA continues to march forward,” 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.”



The Distributed-power Open Standards Alliance (DOSA) was formed to ensure future DC-DC product compatibility and standardization within the increasingly fragmented power converter market. The goal of the alliance is to establish customer interface standards early in the development cycle, which include form factors, footprints, pin-outs, feature sets and other parameters that will permit alternative sourcing. The alliance will cover a broad range of power converters including non-isolated (POL), isolated applications, and intermediate bus converters.
