Ultra-wide-input-voltage-range DC-DC converters for military and uses introduced by Gaia

LE HAILLAN, France, 14 Aug. 2014. Gaia Converter in Le Haillan, France, is introducing the MGDD-60W series of high-reliability ultra-wide-input-voltage-range DC-DC converters for military and airborne applications.

The MGDD-60 12-to-160-volt input voltage range power electronics device complies with Mil-Std-1275, 704, or DO-160 standards without an additional front-end protection device. This also includes Mil-Std-1275E.

Gaia meets thses standards with the company's proprietary switching techniques while also keeping efficiency to more than 90 percent, company officials say.

The power electronics devices have two outputs for parallel, serial, or symmetrical operation, as well as 5, 12, 15, and 24 volts to cover a wide variety of needs such as single 5-to-48-volt output.

Packaged in the low profile industry standard 2-by-3-inch housing, the MGDD-60 operates in temperatures from -55 to 105 degrees Celsius,and are potted to fit rugged military and airborne environmental conditions.

The units are protected with zero to full load regulation, trim and on/off capability, adjustable UVLO, soft start, embedded EMI filter as well as over-current and over-temperature protection. They can also be synchronized and paralleled for added power or N+1 redundancy.
