European Space Agency's selected Large-class mission called JUICE to study Jupiter and its icy moons environment will carry the Radio and Plasma Waves Investigation instrument aboard during more than 11 years long mission. It will characterize incident radio waves, perform multipoint in-situ plasma impedance measurements, carry triplet of search coil magnetometers and perform data preprocessing. Low Voltage Power Supply unit hereby presented have to deliver very low noisy stabilized power to sensitive instruments working from DC up to 45 MHz, distribute low jitter synchronization clock to respective subunits and provide with housekeeping telemetry measurements. It was designed to meet or exceed Total Ionizing Dose requirement of at least 50 kRad(Si).
