POWER-ONE, INC.

Business Description


We are a leading designer and manufacturer of power conversion products, most of which are sold into the communications infrastructure market. Our products are used to convert and process electrical energy to the high levels of quality, reliability and precise levels of DC voltage required by the digital economy. With hundreds of different products, we have one of the most comprehensive product lines in the power conversion industry, and are one of a few companies that can power virtually every segment of a communications infrastructure network.

Our products include:

• AC/DC power supplies that power communications and networking equipment, as well as industrial, automatic/semiconductor test, transportation, medical and other electronic equipment;

• DC/DC converters, including high-density and low-density products, that are generally used to control power on communications printed circuit boards;

• DC power systems that are used by communications and Internet service providers;

• Recently introduced DC/DC point-of-load ("POL") converters that utilize a semiconductor LGA package ideal for powering Intermediate Bus Architecture (IBA) POL applications; and

• A patent-pending digital power management architecture, introduced in 2004, that integrates conversion, communications, and control for a total digital board-level solution.

We design our products primarily for the higher-end communications infrastructure market, rather than for use in personal computers, mobile phones or other consumer products.

AC/DC power supplies convert alternating current from a primary power source, such as a wall outlet, into a precisely controlled DC voltage. Virtually every electronic device that plugs into an AC wall outlet requires some type of AC/DC power supply. DC/DC converters modify an existing DC voltage level to other DC voltage levels to meet the power needs of various subsystems and components within electronic equipment. DC power systems are integrated or external systems used to power and back-up large communications infrastructure equipment.

We design our power conversion products primarily to meet the needs of manufacturers of communications infrastructure equipment. For these manufacturers, a fluctuation of power may cause severe damage to sensitive systems, resulting in data loss, file corruption and significantly reduced productivity. We design our products to take low-quality power from the electrical grid and purify it to meet the higher quality demanded by digital communications networks, providing significantly greater protection against power disturbances, such as fluctuations and outages. In addition, our products' compact designs are critical to our customers who need to minimize the space allocated to power conversion products in order to maximize the space available for other components. We continually strive to stay ahead of the technology curve to develop innovative products that meet and exceed our customers' needs.

Customers

We sell our power conversion products to a diversified group of thousands of equipment manufacturers, including contract manufacturers. Cisco Systems accounted for 15.4% of our sales.

Suppliers

We maintain a network of suppliers for components and other materials used in the manufacture of our power conversion products. We typically design products using components readily available from several sources and attempt to minimize our use of components that we can obtain through only one source. We procure components based upon our enterprise resource planning system and use a combination of forecasts, customer purchase orders and formal purchase agreements to create our materials requirements plan.

Competition

Our competition includes companies located throughout the world, including Artesyn Technologies, Vicor, Delta Electronics, Eltek, and divisions of Emerson Electric and Tyco International.
