28 March 2012 Power measurements and analysis using Agilent InfiniiVision 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes Wednesday 28th March 16:00 CET Power supplies are integral to every type of electronic product today. Switch mode power supplies (SMPS) have become the dominant architecture used in most of today's computers, networking devices, test instruments and communication devices. Current technology trends in the design and evaluation of switching power supplies are driving for enhanced measurement capabilities in test solutions in order to increase the efficiency and lower the cost of these types of power supplies. When it comes to debugging and analysing switching power supplies, the preferred measurement tool is typically an oscilloscope. To keep pace with technology trends, many of today's oscilloscopes offer a range of measurement capabilities specifically designed to characterise switch mode power supplies. In addition to reviewing some of the basics of switching power supplies during this web seminar, we will discuss in detail some of the specific power supply measurements that are commonly used in designing and characterising today's switching power supplies. We will show how Agilent's new DSOX3PWR Power Measurements option on the InfiniiVision 3000 X-Series oscilloscope can help you characterise switching power supplies automatically, consistently, and fast. As probing is a critical piece to characterising any device, we will also cover probing solutions that can help ensure that the most accurate measurements are performed on your systems. Who should attend? Electronic design engineers who work on designing, integrating or optimising power supply performance in their products.
