Eurotech: Parvus Unveils PC/104+ MIL-STD-1275/704 Power Supply Card for Embedded Systems in Aircraft and Ground Vehicles

ACS-5180 28V DC/DC Converter Board Features MIL-STD-461E EMI Filtering and Transient Protection from 250V Spikes and 100V Surges

Amaro, (ITALY) Nov 1, 2010 Parvus Corporation announces the ACS-5180 PC/104-Plus MIL-STD-1275/704 power supply module at MILCOM booth #1224 being held in the Jose Convention Center Oct 31 to Nov 3. The ACS-5180 is a rugged DC/DC converter card designed for extended temperature operation (-40 to +85C), high shock and vibration levels, and demanding voltage transient conditions experienced by military ground vehicles (MIL-STD-1275D) and aircraft (MIL-STD-704F) platforms, including 250V spikes and 100V surges.

Parvus plans to roll-out the ACS-5180 as a stand-alone card and integrated into DuraCOR mission computers and DuraNET routers and switch subsystems. Featuring robust voltage input protections and onboard MIL-STD-461 EMI filtering, the card will typically eliminate the need for additional in-line power conditioning/EMI filtering integrated into such embedded systems. With a rugged mechanical design, this small form factor card is designed as the bottom card in a PC/104 system stack to operate without heatsinking or any active cooling and provide resistance to high levels of shock and vibration. This highly efficient, galvanically isolated power supply can supply 80 watts of power in military / civil ground vehicle, shipboard, and aircraft applications over the PC/104 (ISA) bus, PC/104-Plus (PCI) bus, or screw clamp terminal.
