Product Information

This module can perform full power margining from 0V to Nominal +20%, with complex voltage ramps, glitches and more. Dual Output channels (12V and either 3V3 or 5V) allow you to power most common devices.

250KHz sampling allows capture of accurate Voltage, Current and Power data. Replace your bench power supplies, scope and current probes with this powerful and cost effective alternative.

Features

This Power Module is a flexible power margining and measurement tool. With 12V and 3V3/5V outputs, it is ideal for most SAS, SATA and PCIe based devices. Each can be programmed from 0 to 120% of its nominal voltage. The voltage and current of each output can be simultaneously recorded to provide accurate power consumption measurement.

The module allows programming of arbitrary voltage output waveforms which can be used to simulate power-up ramps, power failures, noisy power sources, and much more. Patterns can be created over a range of microseconds to minutes, allowing a wide range of testing options.

A high speed record feature provides an oscilloscope like function to record the output voltage, current, and power consumption of the attached device.

A range of Injection Fixtures allow the module to inject power into a variety of devices.

Some versions of the module include external triggering, ideal for coordinating with an external analyser
