Bel Signs Licensing Deal with Cosel

03 October 2014

Bel Fuse Inc., a manufacturer of networking and telecommunication products and power management solutions, has entered into a non-exclusive field of use license agreement with Japan-based Cosel.

Cosel makes high-quality, ultra-small AC-DC power supplies, DC-DC converters and noise filters. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, Bel Power Solutions, a business division of Bel Fuse, licensed specific digital power technology (DPT) patents to Cosel. The company will design and manufacture an array of board mounted power supply solutions employing the newly licensed parents.

The DPT patents were acquired by Bel through the company’s recent acquisition of the Power One’s power solutions business from ABB.

Digital power architecture enables OEMs’ products and data centers to optimize power conversion efficiency, reduce energy costs, and improve energy management capabilities. Bel says that DPT drives increased power density, lower cooling costs, improved product functionality, advanced monitoring and flexible product configuration.

DTP is used in designs based on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), application specific integrated circuit (ASICs) and digital signal processors (DSPs) requiring multiple voltage rails and output voltages dropping below 1V. DPT facilitates telemetry allowing the system to accurately monitor its power consumption and thermal performance. That helps designers easily engineer important features such as system power optimization, fault detection and predictive maintenance features into their end products, according to Bel.

Dan Bernstein, president and CEO of Bel, said that Bel looks forward to working with Cosel and “continuing to provide energy-efficient technologies with increased functionality for our customers worldwide.”

Bell is based in Jersey City, N.J.
