Understanding the limits of your design is critical.
Lesson 1 - Insights from GreatScott!
Engineering creator GreatScott! uses his YouTube channel to share his knowledge of electronics. GreatScott! shares his insights on component characterization and testing, and how he uses these techniques to design and build innovative projects.
Lesson 2 - Component characterization with a VNA
Use a vector network analyzer (VNA) to characterize components. The VNA is a powerful tool that can be used to measure the frequency response, impedance, and other properties of components.
Lesson 3 - DC-DC converter testing with a DAQ
Use a data acquisition system (DAQ) to test DC-DC converters. The DAQ can be used to measure the efficiency, output voltage, and other performance parameters of DC-DC converters.
Lesson 4 - Diode IV-characterization with an SMU
Use a source measurement unit (SMU) to characterize diodes. The SMU can be used to measure the current-voltage (IV) curve of a diode, which can be used to determine the diode's properties such as its forward voltage drop and reverse breakdown voltage.
