Title: Space Electronics Operating at High Temperatures and Radiation Levels
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX13CC10C
Award Amount: $698,715.00
 

Abstract:

The objective is to produce high efficiency DC/DC power modules in a small low profile package that can tolerate extreme environment conditions. The primary effort of the Phase II program is to address the need for very high performance power electronics that meet a combination of high radiation tolerance, high thermal tolerance and extremely low EMI susceptibility/radiation. The power modules incorporate several radical new advances in power design including ceramic cores and quasi-linear circuitry. The program will exit with such modules having been verified for thermal vacuum and electromagnetic (susceptibility and radiation) performance of modules that can tolerate>0.3Mrad and>200C operation with negligible electromagnetic coupling and extremely high electrical isolation.
