High-speed designs use digital components with very fast edge rates in their output signals which can be subjected to significant distortion and degradation creating high bit-error-rates and lower data throughput.  Insertion and reflection losses, crosstalk and impedance mismatch, are all factors, amongst others, influencing the integrity of a transmitted signal.

Empower’s E-CAP silicon capacitors provide wide bandwidth low impedance highly stable decoupling capacitors capable of being placed close and even integrated into an SoC substrate.

Empower Semiconductor is developing power management solutions enabling full unrestricted speed and performance of the latest xPUs.

  • High power density
  • High bandwidth conversion
  • Low power distribution losses
  • Vertical Power

The ability to process data and perform complex calculations at high speeds has been intensified in recent years by leaps in technologies such as artificial intelligence, 3-D imaging and autonomous driving. These technologies have exacerbated the need for faster and more complex processors and architectures.

Equipment designed to operate within a high magnetic field environment can experience power failures or abnormal operating conditions due to the force the magnetic field imposes on ferromagnetic material-based electronics.

Moreover, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) devices can record false or distorted images due to the inferences from such electronics. Empower’s IVRs regulators use non-ferromagnetic air-core inductors ideal for operating in harsh magnetic environments.

Data being communicated and processed around the globe is rapidly growing, driving the need for a new generation of faster data processing components and elements in data centers and datacom equipment.

Empower Semiconductor offers novel fully integrated power management solutions that both increase performance and solve the power density challenge of space-constrained data-intensive applications.

System-on-Modules (SOMs) and Computer-on-Modules (CoMs) provide all components of an embedded processing system (processors, communication interfaces, memory blocks, power management, etc.) on a single production-ready printed circuit board (PCB). This modular approach makes them ideal for embedding into a variety of end systems and applications.Empower’s IVRs provide high-density configurable multi-rails regulators enabling rapid and flexible prototyping.

Chiplet architectures are rapidly gaining popularity over monolithic designs in developing complex SoCs. While providing increased performance, design flexibility and upgradability, they do, however, require more complex power management and PCB routing.

Empower’s IVRs can be integrated as an additional chiplet into an SoC increasing the power delivery efficiency and simplifying PCB routing.

Environment, Social, Governance

“Empower’s commitment to sustainability encompasses both the way we manage our business and the innovative, highly efficient technologies that we develop to reduce the power consumption and its impact of data-intensive electronics applications. And that innovation is made possible by offering highly talented people a highly rewarding work environment.

Tim Phillips, CEO, President & Founder


The rapid growth in energy consumption is making it imperative for designers of data-intensive technologies to meet demands for reduced power consumption. Empower was founded with the specific aim of addressing this fundamental challenge.

By significantly increasing power efficiency in applications ranging from data center servers to AI systems, our patented semiconductor technology provides critical reductions in global energy consumption and carbon emissions.

Adopting Empower IVR technology in high-end servers and storage devices, for example, can help to reduce data center energy consumption by between 10 and 30%. With information technology surging to 21% of global electricity demand and data centers to 7%, global adoption of our technology would save 285 TWh of annual electricity production. That, in turn, would deliver a reduction in COemissions of around 150 million tons.

What’s more, Empower’s technology eliminates the need for a large number of additional and sometimes bulky external components needed by traditional power management ICs (PMICs). Fewer materials and components, therefore, need to be mined and manufactured, while a reduced component count and smaller end product form factors translate into reduced carbon emissions from the logistics and supply chains serving OEMs and their customers.

Empower is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of its own operations. This focus on sustainability ranges from how we develop and manufacture our innovative technologies to the decisions we make in managing our global business.


Behind Empower’s innovative technology is a team of highly motivated and diverse individuals working within an inclusive, friendly and rewarding environment.

As an equal opportunities employer, we seek to hire, develop, support, retain and draw on the experience of talented individuals from the broadest possible variety of backgrounds and cultures irrespective of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, age, disability, ethnic origin or other legally protected characteristics.

We also recognize that our social commitments extend beyond our own company and that we can play a positive role in the broader communities where we operate. This means building strong links with educational establishments and businesses and supporting a variety of initiatives including the TouchStones® Discussion Project. This non-profit education organization teaches people essential communication, thinking and leadership skills.


Empower has a strong and experienced leadership team that has put in place internal control processes and audits to ensure the company operates to the very highest standards of corporate governance.
