VPT Receives DSCC Qualification for Converters

March 02, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

VPT Inc. (Blacksburg, VA) announced that it has been awarded qualification of materials and processes effective immediately by the Defense Logistics Agency to MIL-PRF-38534, Hybrid Microcircuits, FSC 5962. The qualification designation enables military designers to procure products with qualified components more quickly and affordably. The DVSA Series and DVHF Series of dc/dc power converters will now be on the Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) by similarity.

"Typically, military and space system designers could wait months or even a year to receive expensive, qualified, dc/dc converters, delaying system development times and increasing cost," explained Daniel Sable, president of VPT. "With this new designation, our offshore MIL-PRF-38534 production facility, and our ability to stock qualified products, engineers can now come to VPT for fast, affordable, qualified power converter solutions."

VPT will continue the qualification process with the Standard Microcircuit Drawing office at DSCC to release all of these products to the United States Department of Defense Drawings in order to meet end-user requirements as expeditiously as possible. In addition, the company will continue to expand its offering of products with Standard Microcircuit Drawings in 2003 and beyond.
