30 May Digitally Programmable Solid State Power Controller - Demonstrator Design Accomplishments Patent Pending (09/842,967). Foreign patent applied for. 28V 10A version assembled, tested and in demonstration stage. Proved that multiple SSPC outputs could be controlled and monitored using a single microcontroller. Design Status Can be readily modified for 28V 20A, 120Vdc or 270Vdc operation without relay out of PCB. Built using COTS materials. Studies to upgrade for space environment applications. Design is a test bed for Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology. DPSSPC Functional Prototype The Digitally Programmable Solid State Power Controller was developed as a base for a power management and distribution system to meet the needs of future and existing platforms requirements for safe circuit protection devices on aircraft, space platforms, automobiles and the power industry. This generation of Solid State Power Control and Distribution Technology is currently patent pending. Functional demonstrations were given to show the diversity of the design.
