Power Module Provides 600 Watts in MicroTCA Form Factor
Digital Power announced the release of its MicroTCA 600-Watt AC product, the PS-1138, an AC-DC, double–width, full-size (6 HP) MicroTCA compliant power module. The module is designed for use in any MicroTCA enclosure. It serves as the interface between its MicroTCA system and the system power source. The PS-1138 supports shelves, cubes, and other implementations, and complies with the PICMG MicroTCA.0 Revision 1.0 specification. The module accepts and conditions input power and provides functionality for powering, managing, protecting against faults, and limiting power consumptions of a MicroTCA system. The unit includes 12 AdvancedMCs, two carrier hubs (MCHs) to control and manage power, and two cooling units (CUs). Rated at 600 W of output power, the PS-1138 implements power conversion functionality, and provides 16 pairs of payload power outputs. It also features power management features to monitor and manage over/under voltage and over current.
