Advanced Power Components announces additional VPT modules now included on DSCC Standard Microcircuit Drawings
News Release from:
Advanced Power Components PLC
14 April 2008
Advanced Power Components PLC is pleased to announce that the US Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) has issued new Standard Microcircuit Drawings (SMDs) for its range of VPT DVFL 120 watt DC-DC power converters. This designation simplifies the procurement of high reliability DC-DC converters for US Department of Defense (DoD) programmes specifying avionics, military, and space qualified components.
Michael J. Bosmann, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for VPT said:
With these DSCC SMD designations, engineers can now procure these military qualified DC-DC converters faster and more affordably than before. These seven models join our ever-expanding line of DC-DC converters now available on DSCC SMDs, and will offer our customers high reliability DSCC SMD solutions from very low power to several hundred watts of power through the parallel function incorporated into these devices.
The VPT products now on the DSCC SMDs are:
Product Name Power Output (W) Voltage Output (V) SMD Number
DVFL283R3S/H 66 Single 3.3V 5962-0724301HXC
DVFL2805S/H 100 Single 5V 5962-0724302HXC
DVFL2812S/H 110 Single 12V 5962-0724303HXC
DVFL2815S/H 120 Single 15V 5962-0724304HXC
DVFL2805D/H 100 Dual ±5V 5962-0724401HXC
DVFL2812D/H 110 Dual ±12V 5962-0724402HXC
DVFL2815D/H 120 Dual ±15V 5962-0724403HXC
The DVFL Series of DC-DC converters delivers up to 120W of output power from a single module, saving significant board space and weight. The Series features single and dual output modules, a wide 16V to 40V voltage input range, and full power operation over the full specified military temperature range of -55°C to +125°C.
A Standard Microcircuit Drawing (SMD) is a document that depicts the Government's requirements for an existing commercial microcircuit, tested for a military application. An SMD discloses applicable configuration, envelope dimensions, mounting and mating dimensions, interface dimensional characteristics, specified performance requirements, and inspection and acceptance test requirements as appropriate for a military environment. SMDs cover off-the-shelf high-reliability microcircuits targeted for military applications, using only one standardised document. The SMD program increases the manufacturing base for DoD procurement and provides substantial savings in both acquisition and logistics.
