Tektronix will be showcasing a wide-range of test & measurement products and software solutions for power electronics, applicable from component design to system production, at PCIM 2023 in Nuremberg (May 9-11).

Experts will be on stand to discuss the latest power test solutions from Tektronix, designed to solve individual test and measurement challenges for accurate, automated power semiconductor characterisation and electrified automotive power conversion measurements.

Tektronix’ stand will feature dedicated power workstations focused on:

  • Wideband Gap Double Pulse Tests Measurement Solutions
  • Characterisation of Power Semiconductor Devices with Parameter Curve Tracers
  • General Power Design Solutions for Bench Automation, including Battery Modeling and Characterisation
  • Dynamic Switching Power Conversion Signals Analysis

Further highlights on the Tektronix stand this year will include:

  • SiC MOSFET and GaN FET Switching Power Converter Analysis KitUltra-fast power semiconductor switching technology, such as SiC or GaN, that make up some of today’s power electronics topologies, are extremely difficult to optimise. The SiC MOSFET and GaN switching power converter analysis kit includes patented probe technology to accurately characterise all the critical parameters for optimising power electronics topologies that use SiC and GaN.
  • Wide Bandgap Double Pulse Test SoftwareThe wide bandgap double pulse test applicationon the 4/5/5B/6B series offers precise Wide Bandgap measurements that make device and system validation easier. The application is compatible with all Tektronix VPI probes and, when used with the Tektronix IsoVu probes it helps uncover all the hidden artifacts of SiC or GaN devices at the circuit level. The application offers automated measurements as per JEDEC and IEC standards. It offers unique features such as per-cycle analysis with annotation, flexibility with custom reference level settings, configurable integration points, and power preset that can be set based on the DUT designs.
  • In-Motor Drive Analysis SoftwareInverter, motor and drive analhysis software on the 5 Series B MSO simplifies triggering on PWM outputs and making 3-phase measurements. Phasor diagrams help visualise and debug 3-phase electrical problems. The IMDA application also supports a unique DQ0 measurement, that provides valuable insight into vector control systems. It mathematically computes D and Q from the inverter’s output and displays these control parameters in real-time. 
  • Tektronix will also deliver three live dedicated speeches at the Industrial and E-Mobility Forums, as well as on the Tektronix booth:
  • May 9, hall 7, booth 7-480, 12:30pm

◦       Title: Testing Power Semiconductor Components

  • May 10, hall 6, booth 6-220, 4:05pm, E-Mobility & Energy Storage Stage

◦       Title: Test & Measurement evolution in a large-scale EV adoption scenario

  • May 10, hall 7, Tektronix booth 7-216, 2:30-2:45pm, live product presentation

◦       Title: Double Pulse Testing Solution for Wide Bandgap Based Fast Switching Power Design
