X-ES Introduces First VITA 62 Power Supply: Conduction-Cooled 3U VPX XPm2020

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) announces the immediate availability of the XPm2020, a conduction-cooled, VITA 62, 3U VPX power supply that takes in MIL-STD-704 28 V DC input voltage and provides up to 300 W on 3.3 V, 5 V, and 12 V at 90% efficiency. Designed for rugged, deployed military applications, the XPm2020 integrates MIL-STD-461E EMI filtering and on-card hold-up capacitance to provide 75 ms of hold-up time.

The XPm2020 can operate over a wide input voltage range from 16 V to 50 V steady state while maintaining up to 300 W isolated output power. It provides up to 25 A on 3.3 V, 22 A on 5 V, and 8.3 A on 12 V in a compact 3U VPX form factor. With support for current sharing, two XPm2020 power supplies can be connected in parallel to provide increased power output.

The XPm2020 features include:

  • 3U VPX form factor
  • VITA 62 pinout
  • Conduction-cooled
  • Optional on-card hold-up capacitor for up to 75 ms of hold-up time (at 120 W)
  • MIL-STD-461E EMI filtering
  • Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) controller
  • Load sharing support with another XPm2020

“Being first to market with a VITA 62 power supply is further evidence of X-ES’s VPX leadership role” states Bret Farnum, VP of sales at X-ES. “VITA 62 is an innovative technology for the embedded market that will benefit customers.”

VITA 62 is a power supply standard that defines a standard form factor and pinout. The form factor is compatible with VITA 46 (VPX) and VITA 48 (VPX-REDI). With the advent of VITA 62 power supplies, VPX users are no longer locked into custom, proprietary power supplies; they have the ability to purchase interchangeable power supplies from multiple vendors. The XPm2020 was designed to the VITA 62 draft standard.
