DC/DC Converters Suit Up For Space

For use in space power systems, more than 50 dc/dc converter modules grouped into four families deliver up to 120W of output power and operate reliably in harsh radiation environments. Reportedly, they are the first dc/dc converters with a guaranteed radiation tolerance through long-term exposure to low dose radiation. Features of the SVSA, SVHF, SVTR, and SVFL product families include 6W to 120W of output power, single and dual outputs, characterization and guarantee to 30 krads (Si) per the company's RHA plan specified per MIL-PRF-38534, Appendix G, Level P with 2x margin, and characterization, and testing for TID at HDR and LDR to the MIL-PRF-38534 Class H element evaluated components standard. The space series units are available now with pricing beginning at $950 each for the 6W SVSA Series in OEM quantities. VPT INC., Blacksburg, VA. (425) 353-3010.
