EL SEGUNDO, Calif., 1 Dec. 2006. International Rectifier (IR), maker of power management technology, has announced that the Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) has issued additional Standard Microcircuit Drawings (SMDs) for its family of high-reliability DC-DC converters to include the majority of IR's M3G series of space level DC-DC converters.
With the addition of these 40 new DSCC SMDs, the total number of International Rectifier DC-DC SMDs complying with the MIL-PRF-38534 performance specification now stands at more than 500. For systems designers involved in Department of Defense programs, this action simplifies procurement and support tasks for high-reliability microcircuits they select.
The M3G converters are complete single-ended forward buck converter "building blocks" for 28V-, 50V- and 70V-input power buses. These converters are offered in single-, dual-, or triple-output configurations and are targeted for space-level applications.
Each module is assembled, tested, and documented to reduce or eliminate time needed for analysis and documentation of "in-house" circuit designs. The new converters simplify integration since EMI filtering as well as frequency and phase synchronization are built-in.
