VXI600Advanced Power Designs, Incorporated was founded in 1992 and is located in Foothill Ranch California. The Company's main business areas focus around state-of-the-art power conversion products (both software and hardware) aimed at the Automatic Test Equipment industry.

APD's flagship product is our VXI600 programmable DC power supply (pictured on the left). This instrument is a standard C-size VXIbus compliant card designed to provide the test engineer with an alternative to using older IEEE-488 rack-and-stack power supplies for next generation ATE applications. These instruments are available with up to three outputs packaged in a single VXIbus module covering up to 600W/30A/450V.

The VXI600 is a proven, mature design in use by hundreds of defense and commercial customers worldwide. For more detailed information on the product, please select the PRODUCTS button at the top of this page.

The VXI600 is a good example of APD's ability to conceive, design, and manufacture unique solutions to modern power conversion problems. To achieve the necessary high power densities of the VXI600, we employed not only state-of-the-art power supply design topologies, but also made use of current packaging and interface technologies like the VXIbus and surface mount components.
