BLACKSBURG, VA -- VPT, Inc.’s V-SHIELD packaging technology has been recognized by the judges of the 2016 Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards program with the highest, platinum level award. The platinum level recognizes military and aerospace electronics featuring a superb innovation, characterized by a groundbreaking approach to meeting a need, a new level of performance, efficiency and/or ease-of-use.
V-SHIELD® is a proprietary, patent-pending, fully encapsulated epoxy packaging solution for VPT's DC-DC converters and EMI filters that is highly resistant to chemical, solvent and salt environments and is fully compatible with high volume manufacturing processes including wave solder, cleaning solvents, high pressure sprays and aqueous wash processes. It features a unique integral six-sided metalized shield to improve system EMI compatibility. It also simplifies system thermal design with dual-sided conduction cooling coupled with reduced power dissipation. V-SHIELD® packaging combines the reduced radiated emissions advantage of metal packaging with the water/chemical resistivity of epoxy packaging, allowing for superior performance at a COTS level price.
The Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards program was developed to recognize the most innovative solutions in military and aerospace technology products and systems, as determined by a panel of senior, third-party, expert judges.
