RF transmitter

Key challenges

  • Develop a very small low profile power supply that accepts 28VDC input and converts down to four outputs of 4V, 6V, -5V, and 18V
  • Featured solution needs to be highly efficient at full load
  • Configuration needs to be conduction cooled

RF transmitter

Solution

  • Solved weight and sized concerns using half-chip PRM regulators and half-chip VTM current multipliers
  • Featured high efficiency of >92% at full load
