Optimize Semiconductor Power Efficiency and Performance

As the demand for energy efficiency grows, engineers struggle to quickly measure, analyze, and react to power consumption and performance data. Traditional instrumentation, such as oscilloscopes and DMMs, are too expensive to scale, and low-cost data acquisition solutions aren't always accurate enough. Faced with this difficult decision, some organizations choose not to fully analyze power efficiency, leaving them at risk of missing market windows or losing competitive opportunities.

 

A semiconductor power validation solution must:

 

  • Provide a cost-effective and consistent way to measure semiconductor power consumption 

  • Enable engineers to quickly acquire, visualize, and analyze measurement data​

  • Provide accurate and relevant feedback to designers and potential customers 

Semiconductor Power Validation Solution

  • Perform shunt resistor-based power measurements with specialized, high-accuracy instrumentation built on the PXI platform.

  • Customize measurement parameters to optimize for sample rate, resolution, and channel count.

  • Configure and execute synchronized power measurements without programming using FlexLogger™ measurement software.

  • Quickly locate, inspect, analyze, and report on measurement data using DIAdem data analysis software.

     

Solution Advantages

“There isn’t another offering for the high sensitivity measurements that we do. If NI hadn’t built these tools, we would have to build them ourselves, which would take years of effort. NI allows us to focus on what we need to do.”
