TREPP is not only an acronym representing the five performance dimensions of power conversion, but a standard that SL Power engineers strictly adhere to. Optimizing TREPP is a primary consideration throughout the entire product development cycle and a driving force behind SL Power’s mission to provide the most rugged, reliable, high efficiency, and high value-added power conversion solutions for their customers’ mission-critical applications.
- Thermal Management
- EMI/EMC Performance
- Power Efficiency
- Power Density
SL Power products are designed to optimize these key performance criteria, resulting in well-balanced and versatile power conversion solutions that seamlessly integrate into the end application.
Typically, a power supply will be designed to excel in one or two of these criteria. Imagine five magnets with the same polarity facing into a circle. The mission of a power supply designer is to get those magnets as close to each other as possible, but the magnets repel each other. With a power supply, designing for one variable within TREPP has an impact on the other variables. Finding the optimal balance is a grueling task that is ignored by many power supply manufacturers.
At SL Power, we take the time to optimize the design across all five performance dimensions to enable seamless integration, which results in shorter development time and cost reduction for our customers.
Comparative analysis is an important step along the TREPP Optimization journey. SL Power regularly conducts benchmark testing to compare the performance of their power supplies with competing models. The benchmark data is synthesized into spider charts that illustrate the overall performance of these models and clearly depict which is superior. SL Power products are not deemed worthy of market release until these spider charts clearly demonstrate that they are superior across the entire performance spectrum.
At SL Power, we strive to be recognized as the preferred partner for power conversion solutions to those customers who value dedication to quality design and optimal performance.
