Power is a fundamental aspect of all electronics, as nothing happens until the current flows. A product’s power electronics have a significant impact on all operational elements of the system driven. How efficient, quiet, safe, and reliable a product’s power storage and/or supply methodology is impacts performance aspects, from RF range to battery lifetime.
In order to properly evaluate, certify, and optimize the power infrastructure of devices, programmable power supplies and loads are vital tools in testing products, from low-power IoT devices and consumer appliances, to electric vehicles and smart-grid infrastructures. Here are some of the latest solutions in the space.
