Military power electronics seeks to increase voltage and efficiency

Vicor is joining the VPX parade with new VITA 62 products.

The ANSI VITA 62 specifications for VPX modular power supplies define the power generation requirements for power modules that support a VITA 62 slot on the VPX backplane.

It uses the standard VPX 3U/6U form factor and offers functionality that includes N+1 failover and 50ms hold up. It also defines connectors that mate with a VITA 62 compatible backplane.
