DC/DC 3V series converter was developed to provide a wide range of power supply for those applications which operate in harsh environment with outputs for specified final user.
3V series energy supplies are standard configurable products that include up to 4 isolated supply output (500VDC and 10Mohm) and 250 watts of maximum power. Inputs are design with a filter to reduce EMI and cancel or endure transient inputs, able to handle ISO 7637-2, Def Stan 61-5 P part 6 subject 5 and 6, and MIL STD 1275D.
Outputs 1 and 2 can be configured for costumers with requirements in the range of 3 to 5 DC watts, and they can also be specified to a maximum of 100 watts or 20 amperes each, whichever the lower one is. Outputs 3 and 4 can be configured for costumers with requirements in the range of 8 to 30 DC watts, and can be specified to a maximum of 84 watts or 10 amperes each, again, whichever the lower one is. Outputs are not isolated.
The enclosure design is optimised for thermal conditions and its mounting is easy, via suitable wedgelocks. 3V power supplies series can also be packed in a machined aluminium box which is coated with chromed plating for cold wall applications.

SPACHE-PHY is a MIL-STD-1553 Rad Tolerant integrated into a single package that includes dual transceivers and transformers, and that is now available in 3.3V and 5V versions. It is designed to connect through a built-in IP to a MIL-STD-1553 ASIC custom protocol.
SPACE-PHY has many practical benefits: first of all, its compact design saves space, so its use can replace two transceivers and two transformers. Secondly, its appearance and design improves its reliability; in addition, its performance is very positive, providing a superior margin for MIL-STD-1553 compliance.
Where can all these benefits be verified? There are many answers to this questions since they can be applied in diverse applications, such as military and research satellites as well as in the most commercial telecommunications.
You can learn more about this product in its technical sheet.
MIL-STD-1553 standard was published and coined over 30 years ago and is still used to test the quality standard in the avionics industry.
This standard was initially intended to be used only in military avionics but has gradually been used in spacecraft with on-board data systems as well as military and civilian issues.
DDC fully complies with this standard, so that MIL-STD-1553 is integrated in its assortment of cards and components in order to improve data conversion needs and its interface.
DDC's data bus board systems, in relation to MIL-STD-1553, are dedicated entirely to integral elements of avionics, military and industrial applications. Within the broad line of military components can be highlighted microprocessors, PCI buses and simple systems. In addition, these solutions are designed to be applied globally in aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles and missile programs.
