(Business Wire; 07/24/98)
CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 24, 1998--
Micropos Pact Underscores EOS' Emerging Dominance as Power Supply
Vendor of Choice for Burgeoning Point-of-sale, Kiosk and Computer
Signaling another major design win in the fast-growing point-of-sale (POS)
market for its ultra-small and high-performance line of newly released internal
power supplies, Eos Corp. has been selected by Micropos Systems, Newbury Park,
Calif., to power the Micropos 6000 line of touchscreen computer terminals.
Micropos Systems supplies a full range of electronic POS terminals for
applications in fine dining, quick service, theater and sport venues as well as
numerous retail sales industries. Its equipment can be found in such
establishments as Arby's, Burger King, Sizzler restaurants, ActIII Theatres,
and sports venues such as Chelsea Football Stadium in London.
Micropos ordered the newly minted EOS Viper-VLT100 internal power supply
and will take delivery of several thousand units over the coming months. With
this contract, EOS' internal power supplies are now in use with numerous
leading POS terminal makers.
"Electronic POS terminals are replacing at a rapid pace and on a worldwide
scale traditional cash registers and other retail sale devices," said Jim
Schultz, EOS executive vice president, corporate development. "Our power supply
products are well suited for this market and the Micropos contract underscores
our emerging growth and potential dominance of this significant market
The high efficiency and performance of the EOS VLT100 Viper 100-watt
internal power supply along with its small size were deemed critical design
features and benefits leading to the Micropos award.
"The EOS power supply has the most advanced technology we've ever seen in
such a small package," said Mike Wright, Micropos vice president of
engineering. "It offered a quick and elegant design solution that gives us the
performance we need in the packaging we want."
"Space is at a premium to point-of-sale terminal designers," said Dean
Edwards, EOS' director of marketing and program management. "The EOS power
supply is so small and powerful that it can be quickly designed in as a
solution. That's exactly what Micropos did. We are pleased to add Micropos to
our growing base of customers and in meeting their power supply needs now and
in the future."
EOS is known for designing and marketing the world's smallest and most
efficient power supply systems. The Viper VLT100, designed in the Micropos POS
system, packs in a 3-inch-by-5-inch-by-1-inch footprint 6.7 watts per cubic
inch, nearly three times the density of any other power supply on the market.
The Viper VLT100 is also convection cooled, eliminating the need for a
bulky and costly cooling fan. EOS introduced the Viper VLT100 power supply last
January and the 60-watt "Jaguar" VLT60 power supply in May. Both are designed
for use as internal power systems in a variety of products made by electronic
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
EOS is one of the fastest-growing companies in the global power supply
industry. The company was recently cited by big five accounting firm Deloitte &
Touche as one of the fastest-growing high-technology firms in Southern
EOS makes the world's smallest and most densely packaged and efficient
power supply systems. They are designed for application with laptop computer,
POS, data networking, industrial control and other electronic equipment makers.
