How2Power.com Press Release - July 16, 2009

How2Power.com Speeds the Search for Power Supply Design Information Unique search tool helps engineers address specific power conversion and power management challenges in a host of applications by locating pre-screened articles, videos, and presentations from a range of trusted sources.
 
Smithtown, NY (PRWEB) July 16, 2009 -- A new website, How2Power.com offers electrical engineers a faster way to address power supply design challenges in their applications. The site's unique How2Power Design Guide search tool enables engineers to find information on a wide range of power electronics topics and at different levels of expertise.

Whether you're using generic search engines like Google or going directly to sites with power-related content, you're usually forced to rely on keyword searches, which can return pages of hit-or-miss results. Even on sites with extensive power content, the design information typically isn't organized in ways that help you to find it easily.
"While the Web contains many sources of information on power electronics, finding the sources you need to address specific design issues can be a challenge, " comments David Morrison, editor of How2Power.com. "Whether you're using generic search engines like Google or going directly to sites with power-related content, you're usually forced to rely on keyword searches, which can return pages of hit-or-miss results. Even on sites with extensive power content, the design information typically isn't organized in ways that help you to find it easily."


In contrast, the How2Power Design Guide offers easy-to-follow, menu-driven searches that enable engineers to quickly tailor their searches to the task at hand. Users can look for power design information as it relates to specific application areas, or narrow their searches by focusing on particular power supply functions, design disciplines, power converter topologies, component types, or environmental requirements. In addition, a popular topics search locates frequently sought-after design information on subjects such as energy efficiency, power factor correction, and LED lighting.

While the Web contains many sources of information on power electronics, finding the sources you need to address specific design issues can be a challenge,
Search results include summaries of articles, videos, and presentations from the websites of magazines, component vendors, consultants, and other reputable sources. Each summary provides an overview of what's covered in a particular source, including a description of "what you'll learn" from that source. The "what you'll learn" information gives users a quick sense of whether a given source will help them solve a particular design problem. The summaries include links to the source materials wherever they reside.

Search results are derived from a database created and maintained by the staff of How2Power. The database currently contains entries for hundreds of sources, and new content is being added to the database on a continual basis.

In addition to the How2Power Design Guide, the new website offers Power Around the Web, which provides links to numerous sites with power electronics information. And coming in September, the How2Power newsletter will offer new design articles, in-depth product coverage, and information about jobs in power electronics.

How2Power.com is sponsored by Vicor Corporation, International Rectifier Corp., and Cirrus Logic, Inc.
