FREMONT, Calif. – Elma Electronic Inc. in Fremont, Calif., is introducing four PCI-104-based ruggedpower supply modules for military ground vehicle and aircraft applications.

The power supplies are for systems designers to use in PC/104, PC/104-Plus, PCI-104, PCIe/104 or PCI/104-Express embedded system stack arrangements. They can also provide power for other small form factor (SFF) embedded computing systems, such as COM Express.

The rugged mechanical PCI-104 form factor is for demanding power conditions typically experienced in ground vehicles and aircraft applications. This enables the power supplies to function without active cooling in temperature ranges from -40 85 degrees Celsius per MIL-STD-810G, when attached to a base enclosure for heat dissipation.

Each module withstands high levels of shock and vibration for defense ground vehicles (MIL-STD-810G) and military aircraft (MIL-STD-704F) for reliable operation in harsh environments.

Galvanically isolated, the DC-DC modules provide reliable signal isolation. The power modules range from two outputs at 30 Watts to five outputs at 120 Watts at 3.3, 5, and 12 volts. The modules support input ranges from 11.4 to 50 volts DC for 28-volt DC applications.

All units ship with MIL-STD-461 EMI filtering and transient protections for demanding 250-volt spike and 100-volt surge requirements per MIL-STD-1275.

The power supplies are compatible with embedded computing modules in mission-critical subsystem assemblies, such as its NetSys family of rugged Cisco Embedded Services Router (ESR) computers and the ComSys family of communications platforms.
