Title: Server system with direct current transformation units receiving power on signal and generating operating voltage and ready signal

Abstract: A server system including a rack, motherboards and direct current (DC) transformation units is provided. Each of the motherboards is inserted on the rack, and generates a power on signal. Each of the DC transformation units is on the rack and receives a DC voltage. When each of the motherboards is electrically connect to the corresponding DC transformation unit, each of the DC transformation units generates a standby voltage and a standby voltage ready signal to the motherboard according to the DC voltage so that the motherboard enters a standby state according to the standby voltage ready signal. When the motherboard corresponding to each of the DC transformation unit generates the power on signal, the DC transformation unit receives the power on signal and generates an operating voltage and an operating voltage ready signal to the motherboard, and the motherboard is turned on according to the operating voltage ready signal.
