Abstract

In large data processing equipment, the power control and monitoring interface may consist of both analog and digital signals, and the analog signals may pick up or introduce noises from/to the surrounding sources. Changing the power control and monitoring from a mixture of analog and digital signals to a totally digital interface eliminates much of the noise and reduces the number of cables required.
