Redefining the sources of power

Avionics and Defense Power Architectures


Simplifying your future

12 & 14 Vdc input bus

To cope with particular Avionics and Defense requirements, GAIA Converter proposes typical off-the-shelf modular power architecture:

Avionics and Defense Power Architecture – DC/DC 12 & 14 input voltage

Compliant with main standards:
DO-160
MIL-STD-704
ABD-100
VG96916-5
STANAG-2601
ISO-16750

(1) Maximum possibility of input voltage variation, for a duration > 2ms
(2) Input range of usable GAIA DC/DC converter Module,
(3) See Application Note (ANGxxx).

  • FGDS series: qualified front filters to allow compliance with MIL-STD-461 or DO-160 EMI requirements
  • PGDS, LGDS series: essential functions such as drop-out voltage recovery, transient and spike protections as per MIL STD-704, MIL-STD-1275 or DO-160
  • HUGD/LHUG series: monitoring and hold-up functions are provided by GAIA Converter hold-up module to sustain bus losses together with fault and advisory signals
  • MGDxx series: at the heart of the power system, GAIA Converter proposes a complete series of low profile, cost-effective and high performance DC/DC modules that come in multiple combinations of input voltages, output possibilities and power ratings
