Vicor radiation-tolerant power solutions enable today’s LEO/MEO satellites

New LEO and MEO satellites are equipped with breakthrough digital payload electronics and require high-density, high-efficiency, low-noise power delivery networks (PDNs), particularly for their advanced networking ASICs and higher power processor engines. These power delivery solutions must also tolerate total ionizing dose (TID) radiation and single event effects (SEE). Vicor radiation-tolerant power modules enable the ideal Power Delivery Network (PDN) for today’s LEO and MEO satellites.
