Measurement of I/O Characteristics of Semiconductor Devices

Overview:

Energy consumption in low-power and standby modes is an important issue due to increased awareness that energy resources are becoming limited and demand for energy-saving household electrical appliances continues to grow. IEC62301 Ed2.0 (2011) and EN 50564:2011 define standby mode as the lowest energy consumption of an appliance not performing its main function, when connected to the mains. IEC62301 Ed2.0 (2011) defines test methods and requirements for both the mains supply and the test equipment. It is crucial that design and test engineers choose highly accurate power measurement tools to confirm that their devices meet these requirements.

Overview:

If a product uses power, then power consumption and power quality measurements must be made as part of product design and test. These measurements are essential to optimize product design, comply with standards and provide nameplate information to customers.
This article will discuss best practices for making these measurements, starting with power measurement basics and proceeding to the types of instruments and associated components typically used to make measurements. The article will conclude with real-world examples, which apply the information imparted earlier in the article to solve practical measurement problems. Although most of us have been exposed to basic power measurement equations, a primer is helpful to summarize this information and to show how it applies to product design and test.

This white paper describes the WT1800, a precision power analyzer that has been replaced by the WT1800E, a unit with numerous improvements including better accuracy. Please visit the WT1800E product page to learn more about the WT1800E.

To keep pace with the increasing speed of switching devices in inverters, Yokogawa has developed the WT1800 precision power analyzer with 10 times faster sampling speed and 5 times wider frequency bandwidth compared with previous models. Its basic accuracy is 0.15% and the frequency bandwidth of voltage and current is 0.1 Hz to 5 MHz (-3 dB, Typical) including the DC component. With up to six inputs, a single WT1800 unit can measure the efficiency of three-phase inverters. In addition, the high-speed data capturing mode allows the WT1800 to measure transient power. This paper describes the high-speed, real-time power measurement technologies underlying these functions.

    Overview:

    The Power Consumption Measuring Software from Yokogawa Test&Measurement provides a comprehensive solution for standby power testing and meets the requirements of:

    • IEC 62301:2011 Ed2.0 – Household electrical appliances (measurement of standby power)
    • EN 50564:2011 – Electrical and electronic household and office equipment (measurement of low power consumption)

    In this video, application engineer Kourtney Morrison demonstrates how to use the software for easy standby power measurement.

    Overview:

    This video demonstrates how to measure transient phenomena on power signals using the Yokogawa Test&Measurement PX8000 Precision Power Scope.

    In several applications, especially those testing AC power to a standard such as IEC61000-3-11, the voltage and current signals must be monitored to confirm there are no major dips and/or swells in the signal. This can be done with instruments capable of reporting rms values, including power analyzers, traditional oscilloscopes, and some data acquisition systems.

    To test to a standard, however, the instrument must have an accuracy spec that is traceable back to a national standard of calibration such as ISO17025 or NIST.

    Overview:

    Using the DL350 Memory Recorder Mode Easy Setup, combined with a 16-channel thermocouple input, it's easy to record hours, days, or weeks of data with a few simple settings.
