The DVSB series of dc/dc converters provides 3.3V and 5V outputs from a single module, thereby saving board space and expenses while improving system reliability for military applications particularly for airborne military uses.

"While newer military systems are using lower voltages such as 3.3V and lower, there are several systems that still require a 5V output as well," explained Steve Butler, VP of Engineering, at VPT. "Typically, this would be accomplished by designing an expensive custom module or using multiple modules for the task. By providing a standard module that meets these requirements off-the-shelf, we now enable system design engineers to save time and power their systems with a single unit instead of two or more."

The module accepts an input voltage between 15V to 50V, as specified by the MIL-STD-704 standard. It produces up to 12.5W of power and a typical output noise of 40mV. The converter also features a dual control loop design topology and features a fault-tolerant magnetic feedback circuit. It can withstand an input transient voltage of 80V for 1s and is available in flanged and non-flanged versions.
