VPT’s VSC Series of Space COTS Converters Earns Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards Highest Honor

Blacksburg, VA, October 26, 2022 – VPT, Inc. (VPT®), a HEICO company (NYSE:HEI.A) (NYSE:HEI), today announced that its VSC Series of DC-DC converters has earned the Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards Platinum recognition, its highest honor. This distinction recognizes companies in the aerospace and defense electronics industries who have made groundbreaking contributions and innovative solutions to solve design challenges.

The VSC Series of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products are intended for “New Space” applications as part of our space product line. The series ranges from 5W to 30W of output power and includes single and dual outputs of 3.3, 5, 12, and 15V with a wide input range of 15V to 50V with 80V transient capability. The VSC Series is radiation tested to 42 MeV/mg/cm2 and guaranteed to 30 MeV/mg/cm2 for SEE and tested to 40 krad(Si) and guaranteed to 30 krad(Si) for TID. A full line of input EMI filters is available to meet MIL-STD-461 or equivalent conducted emissions requirements. The series is designed for smaller satellites in low earth orbits (LEO), and NASA Class D missions where the balance of cost and guaranteed performance is critical.

“The VSC Series leverages VPT’s extensive experience in radiation-hardened DC-DC converter development to provide the appropriate level of radiation performance for LEO applications at an extremely competitive price point” said Leonard Leslie, Vice President of Engineering. “We are honored that our VSC Series has been recognized with the platinum level award by Military & Aerospace Electronics.”
