Orchid Technologies Engineering Develops Avionics Power Supply

Orchid Technologies Engineering & Consulting, completes the development of a ruggedized power supply for use in demanding avionics applications. Working closely with component vendors, Orchid Technologies delivered a highly reliable, light weight, 150,000 Hour MTBF solution, for its avionics client.

“The high output voltage stability with low current noise was essential over the entire operating range of this design,” says Paul Nickelsberg, President and Senior Engineer for Orchid Technologies. “Optimization of power supply size and weight were critical to the success of this ruggedized power supply.”

Brownout detection, over and under voltage protection and thermal protection was performed with an on-board power supply controller. In addition, advanced error detection and power supply status monitoring achieved extraordinary output performance from the design.
