A leading supplier of discrete devices, modules and integrated high power semiconductor solutions. They are also a sales partner to Mitsubishi Electric and other power electronic firms.
Powerex – Power Devices Manufacturer
They manufactures a wide range of rectifier and thyristor products at its Youngwood, PA factory. The product line includes IGBTs (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors), HVIGBTs, IPMs (Intelligent Power Modules), rectifiers, thyristors, custom power modules and assemblies.
IGBT / HVIGBT
The Powerex IGBT/HVIGBT line-up includes both Mitsubishi devices as well as Powerex self-manufactured devices. Mitsubishi IGBTs employ their CSTBT (Carrier Stored Trench-Gate Bipolar Transistor) technology, supporting the reduced power loss and miniaturization required for industrial applications
J1-Series Power Modules Enhance Automotive Efficiency & Reliability.Powerex HVIGBTs and HV diodes, feature highly insulating housings that offer enhanced protection by means of greater creepage and strike clearance distance for many demanding applications like medium voltage drives and auxiliary traction applications.

Energy-efficient AC/DC and DC/DC embedded power, indoor/ outdoor energy systems. – Critical Power – GE Industrial Solutions – 2012
GE Embedded Power – Power Conversion Solutions
The CLP power supply offers a great solution for OEMs requiring design flexibility of power supplies used in their applications. The module offers greater than 90% peak efficiency enabling economical and long life performance. – 90 – 264Vac input; 12Vdc output; 200W Output Power
In a small 2 x 4 inch footprint, the 12Vdc single-output CLP0212 open frame power supply delivers 80 PLUS Gold energy efficiency. With its small size, the CLP series is specifically designed to handle power challenges associated with tight space and low airflow. The CLP series utilizes a unique design approach at this power level, leveraging zero voltage switching techniques in conjunction with quasi-resonant power factor correction (PFC) circuits. Protection features include overcurrent (OCP), overvoltage (OVP), and overtemperature (OTP).
CLP0212 Open Frame Power Supply
History – ;
I first noticed quasi-resonant SMPS in a Tek Logic Analyzer when i worked there. It was Cherokee, This post was made when i came online with Cherokee and Lineage and now it is GE.
2012 – Noticed today that Lineage Power is part of GE from the time this post was last edited. (See first post below.)
AC/DC Power Supplies, DC/DC Power Supplies, and Custom Power Supplies.
Cherokee International designs, manufactures and markets high reliability custom, standard, and modified standard switch mode power supplies for datacom, telecom, medical, and industrial applications.
Cherokee SMPS becomes Lineage Power and now it is GE Embedded Power
Switching power supplies are power supplies switched by high-speed semiconductor switches. They are the most common type of compact, lightweight, high-efficiency power supply.
TDK Lambda – SMPS UPS Power Supply Specialist
Uninterruptible power systems (UPS) are backup power supplies that use a built-in battery to stably supply continuous clean power to connected devices when the regular supply power shuts down due to a power failure or other power problem. TDK-Lambda offers both these types of power supplies”.
