REDMOND, Wash, 27 June 2016. Crane Aerospace & Electronics in Redmond, Wash., is introducing mil-spec qualification for the Interpoint MFK series DC-DC converters for military and aerospace applications. The power electronics devices now meet MIL-PRF-38534 Class H.
This performance specification for hybrid microcircuits, administered by the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency's Land and Maritime segment in Columbus, Ohio, describes a standard military quality level for use in the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).
This document is a performance specification for hybrid microcircuits, multichip modules (MCM), and similar devices, and provides a manufacturing baseline to support government microcircuit applications.
Adhering to MIL-PRF-38535 Class H ensures that these devices meet performance requirements per the U.S. military's qualified manufacturing list (QML). It's an assurance of quality without additional parts tests and screening.
"Many of our customers require Class H DC-DC converters," says Bob Myers, senior director of modular power at Crane. "This assures them that the converters are guaranteed to meet the requirements of MIL-PRF 38534 and MIL-STD-883."
Crane offers MFK Class H DC-DC converters with two SMD numbers -- SMD 5962-14210 for MFK singles, and SMD 5962-14211 for MFK duals.
The MFK series converters have isolated magnetic feedback, inhibit, and synchronization functions, and operation over the temperature range of -55 to 125 degrees Celsius. They are available in flanged or non-flanged hermetically sealed cases with 11 different output voltages.
