Description

The ISIS Electrical Power Subsystem (iEPS) is designed as a single solution EPS, ideal for 1U up to 3U CubeSats. Applying new technologies, the GaN-FETs used in the solar panel interface improve power conversion efficiency and performance. The system is equipped with hardware-based Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and battery voltage management. The iEPS provides 3.3V and 5V regulated buses, as well as an unregulated bus. An add-on daughter board allows multiple configurations and customizations as needed to suitably power your system and payload instruments.
