BTCPower (Broadband TelCom Power, Inc.) was founded in 1999 to commercialize its proprietary Flat Matrix Transformer Technology (FMTXR) by developing power supplies and converters for the telecom and internet infrastructure market. The FMTX technology enabled the Company to offer the highest current density converters in the market (current supply capability per cubic inch), receiving numerous rewards and recognition.
Unfortunately, despite the many technological and product advantages, the market for high current density power converters for telecom and internet in frastructure virtually disappeared at the sudden end of the internet boom in 2001. The introduction and market acceptance of very low cost non-isolated VRM chipsets exacerbated this negative market impact for BTCPower. A recovery attempt was made by targeting the Automated Test Equipment (ATE) market instead with the same standard product lines, but this was marginally successful due to lack of market size, increasing competition, and the fact that the highest current density did not offer asignificant advantage in this particular market.read more
