High-density power is needed to keep pace with projected 20X growth in New Space

Today’s sophisticated communication satellites demand unprecedented levels of computational processing which demands higher power, greater efficiency and lower noise all in a shrinking footprint. Because hard-switched converters have drawbacks in size, efficiency and electromagnetic interference, system engineers and power supply designers need to consider more advanced power supply topologies. Download this free whitepaper to learn how you can design better and more capable power delivery networks for satellites.
