Axiom Test Equipment Blog: Advances in DC Power Supplies - RF CafeSeptember 8, 2020 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled "Advances in DC Power Supplies" that offers advice on how to determine what the specifications need to be for your DC power supply application. Programmability of many models permits not just setting of constant DC voltage and current levels, but also in some cases setting of source impedance and creation of complex outputs similar to those possible with dedicated waveform generators.

Often the needs of a DC power supply for design and development differ from those of production floors and repair / alignment activities, so you cannot always apply a one-size-fits-all philosophy. "Advances in DC Power Supplies" is a good place to start your research. Additionally, user manuals provided by manufacturers are a great source for application suggestions.

Advances in DC Power Supplies

September 8, 2020

Power is essential to any test setup and the DC power supply at one time might have been among the most overlooked instruments in a test system. Modern DC power supplies are no longer simply sources of current and voltage in a test system; they are being designed with versatile functionality and intelligent protection for extended operating lifetimes. They provide details at a glance using LCD screens and touchscreen displays. Even as power supplies increase in capabilities, they become easier to use by means of programmability and computer control. Of course, sorting through a wide selection of advanced DC power supplies for a benchtop or system application can be challenging, but the choice can be made a little easier by understanding about the different types of DC power supplies and how they fit with different applications.

Selection of an adjustable power supply for test purposes has evolved beyond finding an instrument with suitable voltage and current ranges along with maximum voltage and current that exceed the maximum expectations of a measurement application, such as providing bias to an amplifier. Some DC supplies may also be rated for a short-duration, maximum current level.

In general, test-instrument power supplies are available with low-voltage/low-current, high-voltage/low-current, and high-voltage/high-current capabilities. Sometimes the choice of a power supply for an automatic-test-equipment (ATE) system is a matter of finding an instrument with high-enough power density to fit within the available space of the system while still providing the required ranges of currents and voltages along with the features that can support and assist a measurement agenda.

About RF Cafe

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
