As the processing power of central processing units (CPUs) and graphic processing units (GPUs) in today's servers, desktops, and notebooks continues to increase, cooling them is becoming a key issue. A typical server requires one kilowatt of power for processing and an additional one kilowatt for its cooling fans, thereby doubling the power consumption.
Marvell’s sensorless fan controllers eliminate external components, thus reducing space and bill of material (BOM) costs. Furthermore, Marvell’s fan controllers’ unique driving method enables efficient power transfer from electricity to motor, greatly improving energy efficiency in cooling fans.
