DCH Systems is now offering integral DC-DC conversion in many of its Uni- and Bi-Directional PA products, with a typical input voltage range of 9-36V. This option allows for the PA to be used with a variety of DC supplies, military BB and BT series batteries, and any other battery where the voltage may change over the discharge cycle. The slight increase in the module's size is more compact than the traditional approach of using a PA with a separate off the shelf DC-DC converter solution.
