The growth of data center computing power and the increase in the amount of data being transmitted within and between systems is driving interesting and innovative ways to design electronic systems. Building the systems with robust, predictable, and energy-efficient electrical performance is essential to designing and manufacturing complex systems that scale with the exponential increase in computing and networking operations.
A core interest of members of the IEEE EPS technical committee on EDMS (electrical design, modeling, and simulation) is developing the technology needed to produce these systems. Within EDMS, there are several activities that address the challenges being faced. This article gives an overview of the scope of activities and how EDMS plays a part in supporting the members and the broader community in their efforts.
