PDC offers online support resources, along with a large network of Field Service Representatives and Applications Engineers, providing technical assistance, and on-site customer support.
PDC's field proven technology is integrated into the world's most advanced civil aerospace, defense, industrial and space applications.
Power Device Corporation (PDC) is a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-reliability Power and Control solutions (Components to Processor Based Subsystems, Space Qualified SBCs and Radiation Hardened Components; Power Distribution, Control and Conversion; Motor Control and Motion Feedback) for aerospace, defense, space, and industrial applications.
PDC offers proven smart power control and power conversion solutions that enable land, sea, air, and space vehicle systems the ability to control and distribute raw and conditioned power, more efficiently and reliably. Power management with PDC's Solid-State Power Controller (SSPC) solutions offer dramatic SWaP-C saving advantages over the electromechanical switches, relays, and circuit breakers they replace. PDC's power conversion and supply solutions, offering greater than 92% efficiency, provide high quality conditioned power in a space saving, reliable, and field-proven, "fit and forget" design.
DATEL, a subsidiary of PDC, was established in 1970 and has been a long time leader in providing high precision data acquisition components, including data converters, power supplies, DC-DC converters, and digital panel meters.
PDC is a leader in high reliability motor control and synchro/resolver motion feedback solutions for defense, civil aerospace, space, and industrial applications. PDC's motor control solutions deliver high reliability postion, torque and speed control, while our synchro/resolver motion feedback solutions provide high accuracy positioning, direction and speed data for high reliability applications.
Motion Control Solutions
PDC is a leading supplier of space qualified SBCs and radiation hardened components. Utilizing multiple radiation hardening techniques, PDC's space solutions incorporate one or more of the following elements: RAD-PAK® technology, Rad Hard by Design, Triple Mode Redundancy (TMR), and Error-Correction Codes (ECC). PDC's space-qualified and field proven solutions are engineered for space’s extreme environmental requirements, while reducing space, weight, and power consumption, along with total cost of ownership.
Satellites & Space Systems
PDC’s core competencies and unique suite of capabilities for the production of custom solutions span every stage of development including electrical design, mechanical design, test engineering, process engineering, manufacturing, and product assurance. PDC is uniquely qualified to support a wide range of application requirements and technologies based upon our decades of experience in analog and digital microelectronics, magnetics, power supplies, and radiation mitigation technology.
PDC offers a range of Analog-to-Digital Converters featuring up to 16-bit resolution and speeds up to 41 MSPS, which include PDC's proprietary RAD-PAK® shielding. The products with "LP" in their part number, have Latch-up Protection Technology (LPT). This is a PDC designed custom ASIC that is capable of sensing the on-set of latch-up, removing power from the protected device, isolating input/output signals from external circuitry and finally restoring power and normal operation after sufficient time for the effects of the single event to dissipate. RAD-PAK® is a hermetic ceramic package shielding technology that reduces the Total Ionizing Dose (TID) received by the semiconductor components in the package by orders of magnitude from the total ionizing dose environment exterior to the package. This allows us to put commercial semiconductors with only moderate total dose tolerance in the high total dose environments encountered in space.
