Generate Fast Transient Tests with an Electronic Load

Written on June 23, 2016 at 8:30 am, by

To ensure that automotive electronics can withstand the voltage transients induced on the power bus, companies use expensive arbitrary waveform generation and coupling networks during the design phase. For production test, however, a simpler and less expensive means for simulating bus voltage variations and transients is required. For many transient tests, all you need is […]

Understanding AC Power Source Measurements, Part 4: Analog or Digital?

Written on June 23, 2016 at 8:27 am, by

Programmable AC power sources are primarily used to provide a low distortion, precisely controlled sinusoidal voltage to a unit under test, but some AC sources, such as the California Instruments I-iX Series II, perform measurements as well. In this series of blog posts, we’ll discuss various aspects of making measurements with your AC power source: […]
