Characterizing an electronic product, in terms of its response to varying loads can be one of an engineer’s more daunting tasks. The product has to remain stable and predict-able under all anticipated load conditions. If these conditions vary widely, then physical load samples may be difficult or impossible to obtain, presenting a significant impediment to the product’s development process.
DigELoad addresses this potential bottleneck in a unique and innovative way by letting you capture the target load’s profile under operating conditions. The captured profile then becomes a driver to make DigELoad’s internal programmable load emulate the actual load, eliminating the need to have the actual load available for the product development process. From the driving product’s point of view it’s identical to having the actual load connected.
Once you capture the load’s profile, you can export it in the form of a CSV or other text-based file and investigate “what if” scenarios by editing the data to simulate hypothetical load conditions such as production tolerance ranges and diverse faults. Then just save the file under a different name and upload it to DigELoad. When you run it, DigELoad will use your modified data to precisely create the corresponding load profile. With just a few keystrokes, you can simulate conditions that would be difficult or impossible to create with the actual load hardware!larger view
