Rugged PC/104 power supply for avionics and vetronics uses introduced by Connect Tech

GUELPH, Ontario, 6 June 2012. Connect Tech Inc. in Guelph, Ontario, is introducing the Xtreme/PSU efficient high-powered PC/104 power supply that systems designers can use as a stand-alone power supply for embedded computing systems, or use it directly to power a PC/104 stack or single-board computer.

The rugged poser supply is for military and industrial applications, including aircraft avionics and ground vehicle vetronics.

The Xtreme/PSU with extended temperature capabilities provides power to terminal block connectors and powers all of the PC/104 family expansion buses such as PC/104, PC/104-Plus, PCI-104, PCI/104-Express, and PCI Express/104.

The power supply provides 115 Watts of total output power with 5-, 12-, and 5-volt standby output voltages. It accepts 6-to 36-volt DC input, and can be used with Connect Tech’s stackable CPU and expansion boards.

Options include PC/104-Plus (PCI & ISA); PC/104 (ISA only); PCI-104 (PCI only); PCI Express/104 (PCI Express only); PCI/104-Express (PCI Express & PCI); and embedded (no bus connectors).

Other PC/104 boards can be stacked on top or below the Xtreme/PSG, and the device uses modern power controllers, inductors, and oversized MOSFETs for improved thermal performance that requires no heat sinking.

The power supply comes standard with a two-piece terminal header/plug connector, with an optional shrouded screw locking connector. For more information contact Connect Tech online at
