SVPL1209S Point of Load DC-DC Converter

The SVPL Series of space qualified point-of-load DC-DC converters is specifically designed for the harsh radiation environment of space applications. Performance is guaranteed through the use of hardened semiconductor components and analysis. The SVPL Series has been characterized for Total Ionizing Dose (TID) performance including Enhanced Low Dose Rate Sensitivity (ELDRS) and for Single Event Effects (SEE) per VPT’s DLA-approved Radiation Hardness Assurance (RHA) plan per MIL-PRF-38534, Appendix G, Level R.

The SVPL1209S is based on the Intersil ISL70003ASEH radiation-hardened monolithic buck regulator. It is designed to operate from a nominal 3.3 V to 12 V bus. The SVPL1209S supplies low voltages at 9 A with high efficiency and fast transient response, making it an ideal choice to supply point-of-load applications such as high performance space processors.
