MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The July issue of MPD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

New Power Supply Unit (PSU)

The P233, designed to meet the demands of highly integrated embedded systems, is a 3U VITA 62-compliant PSU that offers an output capacity of up to 500W, as well as a wide voltage input range of 18 to 32 VDC, and can be used in a range of VME, VPX, and CompactPCI systems. Two P233 power supplies can be connected in parallel with a load sharing option to provide 1000W of total output power. Or, for added system reliability and redundancy, the connected units can function as two parallel, redundant 500W supplies with automatic failover. The MIL-STD-704-compliant P233 features multiple supply outputs: 3.3V, +12V, +5V, +/-12V AUX, and +3.3V AUX, each with independent current limiting, as well as numerous protection mechanisms to ensure the PSU will not be damaged, even if connected to an incorrect or malfunctioning power source.
