System operators are looking to minimize costs, and while existing OCP designs offer a variety of cost and performance benefits, the telecom industry has unique requirements that require tailored solutions. This white paper focuses on different types of next generation OCP solutions for the telecommunication sector that strategically address this growing need.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/communications/telecommunications-industry-midst-transformation" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/communications/telecommunications-industry-midst-transformation#comments Communications Components White Paper Embedded Thu, 29 Sep 2016 20:48:00 +0000 888061 at http://electronicdesign.com Future-proofed Data Center Cooling with Air-to-water Heat Exchanger http://electronicdesign.com/test-measurement/future-proofed-data-center-cooling-air-water-heat-exchanger <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by: Pentair/Schroff </div> <div class="node-body article-body">As the need for information is increasing, so is the need for increased processing power of IT equipment, resulting in increasingly higher processor densities and heat levels. Elevated temperatures result in equipment failure, and ultimately, costly network downtime, making the need for efficient cooling systems more important than ever. This white paper focuses on solutions and applications geared toward maximizing the lifespan and effectiveness of your data center through air-to-water cooling solutions.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/test-measurement/future-proofed-data-center-cooling-air-water-heat-exchanger" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/test-measurement/future-proofed-data-center-cooling-air-water-heat-exchanger#comments Communications White Paper Embedded Test & Measurement Thu, 29 Sep 2016 20:48:00 +0000 888051 at http://electronicdesign.com Identifying the Ideal Mechanical PCB Hardware for Electronic Systems http://electronicdesign.com/embedded/identifying-ideal-mechanical-pcb-hardware-electronic-systems <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by: Pentair/Schroff </div> <div class="node-body article-body">With today’s diverse electronic systems applications, a variety of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) hardware and retainer solutions may be deployed to address a broad range of unique protection requirements.
