Calibrate voltage drops and interrupts before testing

Poor power supply quality—in the form of dips, dropouts, and other voltage variations—can result in electrical malfunctions that can have serious consequences.

To verify that automotive systems will operate properly in the presence of a voltage-supply interruption, you need to test the electronics under conditions that mimic these real-world supply conditions.


MATsolutions' insight:

Poor power supply can have serious consequences. These can be avoided by testing the electronics under conditions that simulates the real-world supply conditions.

This article from EDN walks you through two helpful methods when verifying that automotive systems will operate properly in the presence of a voltage-supply interruption.
