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:
Performs power measurements with specialized, high-accuracy instrumentation built on the CompactDAQ and PXI platforms
Leverages high-performance PXI instrumentation including the PXI Analog Input Module, PXI Source Measure Unit (SMU), PXI Digital Multimeter, and PXI Oscilloscope
Enables powerful engineering workflows between interactive tasks using InstrumentStudio™ Software and automated tasks using TestStand
Empowers custom workflows using LabVIEW, Python, and/or C# using the included driver APIs
Allows users to quickly set up, visualize, log, and analyze power data using the Power Validation Add-On—without programming
Acquire reliable and consistent power measurements for design feedback, customer enablement, and competitive insight.
Scale from a few channels to hundreds of channels in a compact form factor.
Gain the insight needed to optimize power efficiency and performance for the target market segment.
Accelerate customer engagements with quick access to meaningful power consumption data.
Accelerate time to market with a solution that fits different workflows.
Maximize the efficiency of design and validation teams with a complete solution for power measurements.
