The module is designed to fit within the standard defined for VPX moudles in the VITA 48.0 standards.

The initial products operate from a nominal 28 or 270V DC input, with pre-defined output voltages ranging from 3.3 to 12V, delivering up to 600W of power. For applications or projects that require different output voltages or power levels can request a customised power supply to meet specifications.

The family has been tested and will meet MIL-461F and MIL-704F.  The 28V input version also meets MIL-1275D.
