Norwegian translation:kraftforsyning av mursteinsstørrelse
Explanation:
Når det ikke finnes kontekst, får man bruke fantasien... :) Jeg ville tippe at 'brick' spiller på utformingen, altså at det er en "modular PSU". Disse er gjerne laget som små "murstein", eller "salmebok" om du vil, og kan monteres i rack eller på printkort.
Fra referansen:
This is a standardized size for PCB mounted power supplies. I suppose that the term brick comes from the first engineer that dropped a power supply on his toe. It could have been worse! The brick power supply dimensions are as follows:
Full brick 4.6 x 2.4 x 0.5 (116.8 x 61.0 x 12.7) mm
Half brick 2.3 x 2.4 x 0.35
Quarter brick 2.3 x 1.45 x 0.35

Det finnes vel ikke noen etablert norsk term for "brick" i denne sammenhengen, men jeg synes "murstein" ville være både nyskapende og artig! :)

Hei Roald,
God ide. Jeg tror jeg holder meg til murstein - er litt skeptisk til salmeboken :)
Takk for hjelpen!
