News from Arctic Cooling has it that they're discontinuing their "Fusion Supporter", a device announced at CeBIT 06 which acts as an electrical buffer for weaker power supplies... WTF I here you say? Probably has a lot to do with why they're pulling it.



Pfäffikon/Switzerland, 11.08.2006: Swiss manufacturer ARCTIC COOLING drops the "Fusion Supporter" which was announced to the public at CeBIT 06 due to lack benefit to endusers.

The whole project was sold in July 2006 to an Asian customer. It was agreed by both parties not to reveal details about the deal. The "Fusion Supporter" acts as an electrical buffer consisting of capacitors in combination with an electronic charge control. Via this buffer, load peaks can be absorbed, while the electronic charge control makes a continuous recharging possible. Voltage drops should be minimized and the stability of the system be increased by these missing load peaks.
