Here on “Watt’s Up?” we have provided a good number of posts about various protection features incorporated into system power supplies to protect your device against power-related damage during test. Just recently my colleague Gary posted “How Does Power Supply Over-Voltage Work?” (Click here to review) Here he reviews inner workings of different OVP implementations. I recently posted “Safeguarding Your Power-Sensitive DUTs against an Over-Power Condition” (Click here to review) Here I go over a method to protect your DUT against excess power when other power supply features like over current protection may be less than ideal.
The reason why we frequently share power-related protection topics here is protecting your DUT is extremely important, there are a lot of different capabilities incorporated in system power supplies for this purpose, and there are a lot of practical considerations when putting them to use.
Hopefully a number of you have found our posts on protection-related topics of help. Because this is a very important topic and there is so much more you should know about it I will be giving a live web-based seminar “Protecting Your Device against Power-Related Damage during Test” on August 20th, just a few weeks away from today. I will be going over a number of protection-related topics which we have not yet covered here on “Watt’s Up?”. One of my objectives is to provide a more holistic view of the many ways a system power supply is able to better safeguard against power-related damage as well as what is practical to expect when using these various capabilities incorporated in the power supply.
You can register online at the following (Click here for description and registration page) In case you are not able to attend the live event on August 20 you will be able to register and listen to seminar afterward as well, as it will be recorded.
So if protecting your device against power-related damage is important to you I hope you are able to attend the seminar!
