Probing Tips for High-Performance, Low-Power Circuits

Figure 1. Extending the frequency and voltage range of a probe requires a front-end network of resistors and capacitors.

Low-power circuits combine high speed and low-power consumption in a single component, presenting a number of probing and testing challenges. Since many low-power devices are also high-speed systems, there is a need to test and verify their performance. Testing the low-power components for compliance with industry

Precise Power Integrity Measurements

Figure 1. Power rail voltages and tolerances required by ICs continue to decrease. These dynamics challenge traditional oscilloscope measurement approaches as the noise of the scope and probe system impairs the ability to make accurate measurements of small signals.

Development teams face increasing power integrity challenges. FPGAs, ASICs, and standard components semiconductor devices continue to increase in gate count. Each of the millions of gates on an integrated circuit requires current to switch. As devices can consume tens of amps and total power must be managed,

Navy Grant to Allow UTA Researcher to Study Challenges of High-Power, Intermittent Energy

David Wetz, associate professor of electrical engineering at The University of Texas at Arlington, is studying energy storage for the US Navy.

There is a continuing effort by the U.S. Navy to integrate energy storage throughout their fleet of vessels. Many batteries may be used to supply high power to intermittently operated loads and it is important to have a way to test how those batteries will perform under operational conditions before
