As defence electronics continue to advance and be deployed in hostile environments, engineers are increasingly relying on open standards to upgrade their technology. Sarsen Technology stocks a range of high-performance VPX and CompactPCI power supplies from Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) that enable integrators to reduce the SWaP, cost, and complexity from their system. Benefits include:

  • More than 90% efficiency
  • 300W of output power from a single 0.8in slot
  • Integrated EMI filtering and transient suppression
  • Integrated intelligent platform management interface (IPMI)

The 3U VPX VITA 62 fills a gap in the market that enables defence personnel to possess system-level interoperability in power system requirements. X-ES's stocks the VPX COTS power modules in several variations to promote compatibility with different systems, such as:

  • XPm2220 - maximises 12V output power for MIL-STD-704 or MIL-STD-1275 input
  • XPm2120 - maximises 12V output power for MIL-STD-704 input
  • XPm2020 - contains internal hold-up capacitor for MIL-STD-704 input

For systems that use a 3U CompactPCI (cPCI) backplane system, X-ES's XPm2010 power supply module provides users with an internal hold-up capacitor for MIL-STD-704 input.
