EETimes Launches - Website for Engineers Searching for Power Design Solutions

The Second in a Series of Design Solution Websites for Engineers and Engineering Managers Designing Electronic Systems for Industry Specific Applications

Nov 8, 2004

EETimes announced today the launch of the Power Management DesignLine web site, (, an online resource focused on design solutions, management, and regulation of voltage and power.

"Power-hungry devices are everywhere; from today's portable electronics products to back-up power supplies for the telecom giants, to others that we can't even imagine yet. All these power products demand enhanced power management capabilities to run optimally. Smarter power supplies and components are the foundation for meeting the demands for a power hungry world and design engineers need quick access in one place to get the information that speaks to their needs for better power designs," says Paul O'Shea, the site's editor. Power Management DesignLine fills an informational void for engineers, providing specialized and application-specific recommendations, "how-to" design advice, product announcements and reviews, in-depth product research tools, expert analysis, insights into industry trends and breaking news focused on the following key areas:

  -- Power Supplies
  -- Power Components
  -- UPS
  -- Battery Management

Power Management DesignLine also features a technical library with articles, research and standards-related resources. In addition, the site hosts discussion blogs and forums enabling engineers to help each other by addressing the concerns of longevity, portability and reliability in battery design and voltage regulation.

Designed for the power management community by working engineers, the site's content consists of contributed article materials from design engineers and engineering managers. This "by-peers-for-peers" model permeates the site, reflecting its mandate of providing practical "how to" solutions that power management design engineers face daily. Paul O'Shea,'s editor, exemplifies the bench-level approach. A 20-year veteran of the engineering industry, O'Shea has written for a variety of publications and online forums, outlining product and design solutions for engineers. He sees the site as a resource for both new and experienced engineers looking to be tutored in the intricacies of the burgeoning voltage and power regulation arena.

Power Management DesignLine represents CMP Media's second in a series of vertically micro-segmented web sites for design engineers involved in designing electronic systems. The site complements CMP's existing suite of products covering power management techniques and technologies including: the upcoming Analog and Power Design Seminar (March 7, 2005), Planet Analog magazine and eeProductCenter.
