The Keysight CX3300 series Device Current Waveform Analyzer now offers two new sensors that enable the characterization and validation of power delivery network (PDN) devices up to 100A. This extended range allows the CX3300 series to expand its application coverage from low-power IoT to mobile, automotive and various high current applications.
Thorough current profile evaluation of PDN devices is one of the most important measurements for IoT/mobile device characterization and validation. However, thorough evaluation takes a long time and requires complex setups because existing measurement instruments do not have enough capabilities to measure the current profile quickly and accurately.
Gaining a true picture of the current profile of mobile devices is important, due to the ever-increasing need for improved functionalities and performance, and also the need for lower power consumption.
Not having an effective solution for current profile measurement can cause the competitive advantage loss that can include:
The Keysight CX3300 is a solution that enables the characterization and validation of PDN for IoT/mobile devices quicker and more accurately. The ultra-low-noise, wide bandwidth and wide dynamic range performance of these new sensors (CX1104A and CX1105A), used with the CX3300 series now allows measurements at a wider range of dynamic current, from 1 μA to 100 A with more precision and speed.
