MURPHY, N.C., 7 Nov. 2016. Aegis Power Systems Inc. in Murphy, N.C., is introducing the VME 650 and VME 650A size, weight, and power (SWaP)-optimized embedded power supplies for military VME bus embedded computing applications.

The VME high-density power supplies for devices employing the standard 6U form factor, and offer improvements over previous models. Both units are pluggable COTS military power supply solutions with four outputs for 650 Watts.

The VME650 and VME650A have keyed connectors to provide keying options when using several power supplies in one VME bus chassis. The primary differences between the two power supplies are cooling method, slot size, and weight. The VME650 is single-slot and conduction cooled via wedgelocks, while the VME650A is two-slot and air cooled.

The VME650 and VME 650A are drop-in replacements for the existing VME550 and VME 550A power cards, allowing customers to conveniently replace older units with the power-packed modules for the same price.

"Various SWaP initiatives across many markets drove the decision to offer more advanced VME power cards for our customers," says Van Steen, senior engineer at Aegis Power.
