Rohde & Schwarz has added power analysis options and a new differential wideband probe to its portfolio of analysis solutions for clocked power supplies. Developers can use the R&S
RTO-K31 or R&S RTM-K31 option to automatically perform all major quality analyses and conveniently document the measurement results. The new R&S RT-ZD10 probe is particularly suitable for the characterization of switching power supplies with high clock frequencies.
The R&S RTO-K31 and R&S RTM-K31 power analysis options provide users with specialized measurement functions for automatically testing the quality of all segments of today’s switching power supplies – including the main voltage quality of the input range, the safe operating area (SOA) of the switching transistor as well as the magnitude and spectrum of the output ripple. A measurement wizard guides the user through all measuring steps and provides diagrams illustrating where to connect current probes and other probes to the device under test.
The R&S RT-ZF20 power deskew fixture allows automatic delay correction between the signals of the current probe and the voltage probe. The handy documentation feature helps users manage the measurement results and save the measurement documentation in RTF or PDF format.
Advanced switching power supplies have increasingly-higher clock frequencies. The R&S RT-ZD10 active differential wideband probe is especially useful for characterizing such power supplies. The probe combines a high bandwidth of 1 GHz and a large input voltage range of 70 V DC or 46 V AC (peak). The common mode and differential offset compensation can be set separately from each other to increase the flexibility of the measurement.
