Update Reason: Tender issue

Isolated and regulated voltage supplies are needed for supply instruments/payloads . As the design of the power supply is not the main task of the payload designer, off the shelf converter modules are often used for this purpose. However, these are often unnecessarily bulky and more powerful than the required power level. It is also often difficult to get design details from the manufactures,in case they are needed for system/WCA analysis. The proposed CC-DCDC shall provide a galvanically isolated voltage which is set bythe user. The CC-DCDC shall operate from and up to 28V bus voltage. The CC-DCDC shall be able to provide typically up to 10W (TBC) of power. The CC-DCDC shall be simple, miniaturised, modular and reconfigurable, and possibly based on rad-hard ICs as switching devices to achieve miniaturisation. The CC-DCDC shall be deliverabe as an IP product consisting of PCB layout and schematic which can be added to the IP users design without modification.
