Abstract

The proposed rad hard Modular Power Controller (MPC) application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and corresponding ASIC-integrated rad hard power converters provide a rad hard solution for achieving applications that need a high-level of radiation tolerance. ASIC integrated wide bandgap (WBG) ceramic-based and PSR-based converters based on analog circuitry represents a transformative design achievement for missile and space power management and offer enormous benefits to space-based power management and distribution (PMAD) systems spanning both low power (ceramic) and high power (magnetic) power supply capabilities that share the same analog controller. The program will migrate this new technology through a disciplined prototype design and development program, including both functional and radiation testing, leading to realization of rad hard power converters (power supplies) that can be readily evaluated by our co-development partners.
