Green Plug Debuts Universal Power Supply
Green Plug introduced a universal power supply technology for consumer electronics devices at Demo 08. The power supply works at both the AC input and at DC output voltages, according to company CTO Gus Pabon.
The company developed the universal power protocol chip which can identify devices such as an iPod or Dell laptop and provide them with the appropriate voltage and shut down the power port when it senses the device no longer needs power.
Green Plug will license its universal connector and Greentalk protocol software for free, according to CEO Frank Paniagua. The company plans to make money on sales of its embedded chip and is looking for licensees.
