|Publication Date:||1 November 2012|
This document standardizes the requirements for power conversion devices (PCDs) for the computer and telecommunications industries. The phrase ''power conversion devices'' refers to ac to dc and dc to dc modules, converters and power supplies. This specification sets the requirements for design; qualification testing; conformance testing and manufacturing quality/reliability processes, but does not include the functional requirements of the specific equipment.
Purpose The purpose of this document is to create a set of consistent specifications and methods to assure suitability, quality, safety and reliability of PCDs for the electronics industry. These specifications will apply to suppliers of PCDs, including their design and testing, and will provide guidelines for the end user to ensure adequate specifications for use in their products. All of the specifications and requirements defined in this document are intended to be part of suppliers' PCDs certifications outlined by the customers and will ship with first article and any design changes to the PCD, on request by the user.
