Simulating power supply interrupts

Keywords:embedded system design  device power interrupts  battery portable systems 

As an embedded systems designer, you face various power optimisation and power characterisation hurdles throughout your design process. You know what you want to output, simulate and measure, but you need a whole �tool-box� of instruments and hardware to do the job. Not only is this tool-box costly, but properly configuring the hardware and software into an accurate, dependable solution can be time consuming.

The power challenges you face can be divided into three categories: properly powering on and off multiple power inputs, characterizing power needs under dynamic load conditions, and simulating real-world power conditions. This application note focuses on simulating sudden device power interrupts in portable battery-powered embedded system designs. We will also introduce you to an all-in-one benchtop solution that can simulate one- or multiple channel real-world power supply interrupts.
