VPT Inc.’s radiation-hardened dc-dc power converters, point-of-load converters, and EMI filters are claimed to be the first power conversion products commercially available that are out-of-the-box compliant to the new Aerospace Technical Operating Report requirements for space power systems. The SVR series of space power products includes 24 new modules in seven product families, all based on space-proven heritage designs and available qualified to MIL-PRF-38534 Class K. They are suited for use in low-earth orbit, medium-earth orbit, geostationary orbit, deep space, and launch vehicle programs. The series also features maximum levels of radiation hardening with a total ionizing dose level of 100 krad (Si).
