3U VPX conduction-cooled power supply for rugged deployed military applications introduced by X-ES
MIDDLETON, Wis., 16 Sept. 2011. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPm2120 conduction-cooled, VITA 62, 3U VPX power supply for rugged military applications. The XPm2120 takes a MIL-STD-704 input voltage of 28 volts DC and provides as much as 300 Watts of power on the 3.3-volt, 5-volt, and 12-volt rails at 90 percent efficiency with 12 volts as the primary power distribution rail in the system. The slim 0.8-inch pitch XPm2120 integrates MIL-STD-461E for electro-magnetic interference (EMI) filtering. The XPm2120 can operate input voltages from 16 volts to 50 volts steady-state while maintaining as much as 300 Watts of isolated output power.
In addition, a 12-volt distribution rail reduces susceptibility to current transients because of smaller current draw. The 12-volt distribution rail also enables systems designers to decrease the board's layer count, complexity, and cost due to smaller copper power planes.
