VPT Launches VSC100-2800S COTS DC-DC Converters for NewSpace Market

VPT Launches VSC100-2800S COTS DC-DC Converters for NewSpace Market

VPT, a HEICO company, announced the addition of the VSC100-2800S to the award-winning VSC Series of space COTS DC-DC converters. Designed for the "NewSpace" market, the VSC Series complements VPT's hermetic hybrid SV / SVL Series of rad-hard products available on DLA SMDs. The VSC Series is intended for use in commercial rad-tolerant satellite applications and NASA Class D missions where the balance of cost and guaranteed performance is critical.

The VSC100-2800S features output voltages of +3.3 V / 66W, +5 V / 100W, +12 V / 100W, and +15 V / 100W, as well as a wide input voltage range. Sensitive semiconductors are RLAT to 40 krad (Si) per MIL-STD-883 Method 1019 and guaranteed to 30 krad (Si) TID. Converters are characterized to LET > 42 MeV/mg/cm2 for catastrophic events and LET > to 30 MeV/mg/cm2 for SET and SEFI. Our proprietary packaging creates a dual-side heatsinking option with very low outgassing.

VPT's Vice President of Engineering, Leonard Leslie, stated, "We are pleased to introduce the VSC100-2800S as the newest addition to our VSC Series. Drawing on VPT's extensive expertise in the development of radiation-hardened DC-DC converters, the VSC Series ensures the optimal level of radiation performance for low Earth orbit (LEO) applications, all while maintaining an exceptionally competitive cost."

We are pleased to offer the VSC family of commercial rad tolerant products from 5W to 100W+ for use on the many "NewSpace" low-cost, high-volume constellations with reduced radiation requirements, with the VSC100-2800S as the newest addition to the VSC family. The VSC100-2800S is available for immediate sale. The VSC100-2800D will be released and available for sale by the end of 2024. Sales are subject to all applicable U.S. export license restrictions and regulations. Additional information can be obtained by contacting a local VPT distributor.
