Naturally, the mere mention of the more specific Hot Hipot test can bring about feelings of apprehension. Yet the concepts involved with the Hot Hipot test don’t have to be entirely elusive to operator and engineer alike. In fact, with a basic understanding of a Hipot test setup, it is relatively easy to understand, implement, and perform a Hot Hipot test.
This article will define the test requirements, and discuss the methods used to obtain results. Limitations of the equipment used will also be discussed, so that lab personnel can be made aware and do their best to minimize tolerance errors.
Although the foundation of a failure analysis is rooted in science, there is also an art to completing one, successfully. The path from “problem discovery” to “problem solution” has many bumps and twists along the way and this article will hopefully help guide you on your journey.
Investigating a Significant Discrepancy in Modern Bulk Cable Injection Test Methods In the 1990s, bulk cable injection (BCI) techniques were still relatively new and controversial. BCI in support of ... Read More...
The models and test procedures used to characterize, determine, and classify the sensitivity of components to ESD.
Like it or not, most electronic designs today are subject to formal EMI testing. So even if you are new to EMI/EMC (electromagnetic interference/compatibility), you need to understand what is involved and how to best prepare for a trip to the EMI test lab.
