A better way to deliver power

Solving SWaP-C power challenges for MIL-COTS applications

Talk to us about your design



防衛産業の設計者が常に抱えている課題として、”SWaP-C” ―サイズ(Size)、重量(Weight)、電力(Power)、費用(Cost)―の削減に加えて、”C4ISR”―コマンド(Command)、制御(Control)、通信(Communications)、計算(Computing)、インテリジェンス(Intelligence)、監視(Surveillance)、偵察(Reconnaissance)―の性能向上が挙げられます。この課題の中で優先順位をつけた場合、要求されるアプリケーションの信頼性、費用、製品化までの時間的制約などに対応しながらも、電力密度と性能を向上させるソリューションが求められるでしょう。

Aerospace and defense applications


High-efficiency, high-density DCM DC-DC converters double the internal bus power and keep the aircraft as light as possible.

High-performance modules provide a well-regulated 48V at more than 1kW to enable higher peak RF output power.

High voltage tethers allow for greater tether lengths, use smaller and lighter cabling and significantly reduce I2R losses.

Flexible, capable power delivery supports more functionality and affords UAVs increased payload and longer runtime. 

Smallest, lightest power solution drives multiple high voltage sources within last-generation platforms.

Superior performance with minimal footprint, least possible mass and utilizing the limited power in an existing UAV
