Show a schematic as I don't understand what you are trying to test.
if i have a board which is not powered up basically (initial condition) how they will behave if i check them for continuity test using multi meter. meaning whether the capacitor/inductor will be open or short. i am assuming that the capacitor should be short and inductor should be open.
thanks betwixt for the comment. I just wanted to test my memory. I knew that adding a capacitor will cross coupling between data lines. I expected that the written data and the read from a fixed address were not equal. but it didn't work anymore. and I couldn't write into the memory. could tell its reason? thanks.
Hi everyone. I was looking out for circuit to test inductor's saturation current made at my lab. I got to go through this circuit at this link and have plans to make it. Power supply for the circuit is mentioned as 10V but the current rating of
Please take a look at this test I'm doing DC Analysis on the transistor to the left and transient analysis on the transistor to the right. I have fixed Vg to 1V and varies Vdd from 0 to 1V for DC analysis
At one stage, I had a lot of quality problems with these small cylindrical 32.768 kHz crystals for a project. The test below helped to identify possible suspect crystals. I applied a 1 Vp-p pulse train (at 1/2 the crystal frequency) as shown through a 1 pF capacitor over the crystal and monitored the response with a x100 scope probe. Using a nor
Hello...really appreciate someone can share me a circuit design that can electrically test and detect faulty capacitor (beside ESR meter or any capacitor meter). Using function generator and oscilloscope can be fine...thanks
So I made an oscillator. I put 300pF capacitor This looks like it should work okay. You should also test your other inductors, and make sure they give different values. I tried a similar method with a few inductors. I got the same value for all of them! I believe the capacitor dominated the oscillation frequency. It
As I understand, you are talking about a loss of one incoming phase. So you test each phase voltage, so any capacitor connected across the phases will not change the voltage. The reason for a loss of phase detector is because with electric motors, if a phase goes missing, if the motor is heavily loaded then it would burn out due to excessive curren
What is the real value of the capacitor, 10u or 10m? What is the intended purpose of the capacitor? (From the look of the schematic, it pulls pin 1 high briefly on power up.) Did you test to make sure it does its job? Does the capacitor need to be discharged after each use? Did you add a method to achieve this?
Obviously, there will be no inrush current without a respective load, e.g. output capacitors. The test setup will hardly show you any inrush effects with 10 k load resistance. I presume, the intended operation is dV/dt reduction by the miller capacitor. But 1 nF is unlikely a suitable value. The inrush current limitation doesn't work (...)
"Some", always. Question is "how much?". Intact ESD diodes ought to draw sub-nA (temperature dependent) but one that has already been abused, or a test escape, could pull more. You should calculate the leakage magnitude as Csample*dV/dt and see what kind of leakage it indicates. A circuit that depends on sub-pA leakages had better be designed an
Just for a blind test, had you already tried to ground some parts of the circuit ( housing, battery negative, etc ... ) at a reliable electric Earth ?
Trying to understand how the matching method is applied practically. You state to use no test equipment, also the antenna impedance will be unknown in the general case. The coax segment length is determined by trial and error (best S meter indication?). How about the capacitor value?
If you only want to test the high-side driver, you must tie the VS pin to ground and remove the high-side MOSFET (or put the load between its drain and +12V supply).
I am currently developing a test block for a mixed-signal design. The block is suposed to check if two signals differ more than a user-given tolerance. The signals to test are voltages stored in capacitors. The strategy previously adopted for this block was a switched circuit that charged a capacitor with the tolerance, then (...)
hii i write this verilog-a for variable capacitor and i test circuit in hspice but capacitor don't change While i expected capacitance change sinusoidal please help me `include "constants.vams" `include "disciplines.vams" module vccap(Cp, Cn, Vp, Vn); input Vp, Vn; inout Cp, Cn; electrical Cp, Cn, Vp, Vn;
Basic debug is verify all DC and gnd and no unterminated inputs on CMOS. Was it ever exposed to ESD during assembly, test? Then probe logic levels on all pins including clock, which may be Near Vcc/2 on output if no scope.
I need to do some high temp testing on a number of capacitors. I want to know the parameters I need to test before during and after the high temp test. The temp will be around 125C in an oven. I assume I should power the caps at their rated voltage ont sure whether I should use AC or DC. I will measure the ESR at room (...)
If the capacitor is continuously buzzing, assuming this is a continuity test, then it means that the capacitor is a short.
The capacitor would not hurt emi/emc performance. How much it would help really depends on everything else around it. I would leave the pads for the cap on the board, that way when you go to test it you could easily add the cap if needed. You might also want to put a ferrite bead on the trace running to the switch.
Ferrite beads come in various types designed for the specific uses. Your observation indicates that those you selected resonate with the 100 capacitor and generate the ripple you observed. A good advice is difficult. I would order several bead types and test them over the frequency range of interest. If they fail, simply use only the (...)
Please specify "differential capacitance" unambiguously. Does it mean both capacitor terminals have additional arbitrary capacitance to ground that should be eliminated in the measurement? If so, how much capacitance? There are different methods to measure capacitance like making the capacitance under test part of a LC oscillator (I guess that's
what "suspect" did you eliminate ? a blowing fuse at startup is generally : - one or more diode shorted in the primary side - shorted mosfet primary side - bad esr capacitor at the primary - Shorted rectifier diodes in secondary circuits (which blown components in the primary then) you must test every component in the primary side if nothing is fo
Certainly inconsistent results! Can you share the design, layout and test parameters ?
My ohm meter uses only 0.2V to measure Ohms so it does not cause a silicon junction to conduct. Then it is almost useless to test a capacitor for leakage.
I have a bunch of ceramic capacitors in a circuit I got from a book. I'm not getting any reading on my voltmeter and am wondering if they are broken. Is there any circuit (a really really simple one) that I could put them in? E.g. I know with an electrolytic capacitor you can charge them, and then connect them in series to an LED. Would this wor
Now we want to add some filtering cap from VDD(5V) to ground on chip. There is only space left under the PAD. Some support adding some PIP caps. But others concern about the CP test security: the probing needle may add stress on the PIP cap and make it short. Does anyone have such experience? Thanks.
that is right,but I wonder If I have circuit don't work well how I can know that the wrong in a capacitor or in a second part. thanks It is often almost impossible to test installed components in a circuit. First you need the schematic, and with a voltmeter or better an oscilloscope you can test voltages in impo
hi i am new to design of electronics circuits. now, i had a task to design the RF power amplifier using MRF 454 transistor (40Mhz). i saw a small test circuit in its manual, some of the capacitor named like ARCO 466, ACO 469. what it means ? what are information behind this? i want to learn basic knowledge of design rf generator & amplifier. i
Hello, Is the way to do this to use Ohmmeter from mains neutral to output ground and see if its connected? (then do the same for mains earth wire to output ground and see if that's connected)?
Hi All, Recently , i am doing some test with the super capacitor. My objectives was to prove that the time taken to discharge a super capacitor from 3.3 - 1.8 v is equal to my calculation results. Let assume that the current discharge to my load is constant at 5uA. The capacitor is 3.3v and 5F. Based on my (...)
Dear Folks, I am looking for smart solution for 3 Phase power source to test our 3 Phase equipments in lab. Unfortunately we don't have 3 Phase power source so can we design any single phase to 3 Phase converter, Our typical load on each phase would be 5 Amps. I have seen connecting a capacitor to drive 3 Phase induction motors from single phas
Hello all, I have a wire tracer that transmits a signal on about 83khz. The antenna (a small wand) is missing. The company does not support the unit any longer and I have been unable to find a replacement anywhere. I have made some antennas on my own for my HAM equipment in the past but never for anything down that low and never for anything th
Dear Al members and senior engineers, I have soldered few smd ceramic capacitor on my board (0603), And i though of testing them by using a multimeter. Unfortunately the multimeter cant check the capacitance and so i turned the wheel to buzzer sound positing. And i went on checking the leads of all the capacitors, on some of them it gave (...)
During testing give more dead time. So that u can ensure no shoot through. After rectifier did u put filter capacitor? That is mandatory. Check the pulse pattern. - - - Updated - - - post ur ckt. so that we can suggest u better.
Hello how can find the output of capacitor microphone in theory or augur it without test in? for example in these circuits what is the output of each circuit schematic?(max and min output)(dc and ac output voltage of
If the problem goes away when you remove a capacitor, then my first thought would be the capacitor has developed low resistance. This can happen although it doesn't occur often. I would remove the capacitor and test it. I would connect at least 12 VDC for a long time, and watch whether it allows current through it. If (...)
WHat will RC accomplish? THis test is for a finished assembly./sub-assy.
Hi there, Just joined up to the forums, apologies if this thread is in the wrong spot. I am currently looking at designing and making a piece of test equipment to test the opening and closing time as well as minimum operating voltages of high voltage circuit breakers. The control circuit side of things is no problems but I am struggling to
Why didn't you try the test code? everything initialized OK?
I don't think the extra .5V is causing the trouble but maybe the Ripple noise from the power supply is causing an interference with the circuit because the circuit is very sensitive because when I close the box and screw it together and move it about with it connected to the PSU the REF led light comes on and off, and no I can't adjust the PSU outp
No, the times used are just adapted to the load time constant of the test capacitor C_load (1MΩ*100pF=100?s) and the discharge time constant of the HBM (1500Ω*100pF=150ns, which is standard for the HBM). See this PDF: 98898 Transient analysis stop time for this simulation should be 1.001ms , not 2?s as shown abo

my diode tester i use when servicing mw ovens
while the suggestion of h-bridge power cap is good to solve the problem , can you test the old setup with a good supply for the mcu? do the mcus power supply adequately noise free/ or is there any suppression in mcu power pins ?
You might get help if you'd want to post your test bench schematic.
putting an led at the HO pin of the driverThe bootstrap capacitor can power the circuit for quite a long time, but a LED only for microseconds. Not a well considered test setup!
yeh, its a tantalum capacitor. i cannot see the value of that capacitor. Hmmm, nothing else has been damage? check the pathway going to the nearest IC's and test whether the VCC and GND of the IC's is shorted. if shorted, you should replaced it. Its better to send your laptop to your nearest technician to replace the damage parts. Its best (...)
Dear all: The switched capacitor integrator is as following. how to test the linearity of the integrator? I am considering to do it in following way. 1) Input is a pure sin wave, the do pss+pac, then calculate the iip3 2) input is a pure sin wave, the output is a stair-case sin wave, then sample the output and do DFT the watch the HD3.
