The Power Distribution Module (PDM) is designed to power MicroTCA(uTCA/MTCA) systems using standard 12V output power supplies.
The PDM has the same functionality as a standard MicroTCA power module (PM) except it doesn\'t have a DC-DC converter to generate +12V payload power (PP) from -48V. It is supplied directly with 12V. An on-board DC-DC converter generates +3.3V for management power (MP)
- Inrush control and over-current protection for MP and PP
- On-board temperature sensors
- Convertible to a Power Module
