Due to the design of modern portable electronic communication devices with thin form factors and low power consumption, required frequency testing of power inductors is increasing. The equivalent series resistance of components has become a critical indicator to identify if it is good or bad. The buffer capacitor plays an important role for overall circuit reliability and must function properly under various voltage transient conditions;
the equivalent series resistance must remain at a very low level when operated at high frequencies. The Chroma 11050 series is focused on testing passive components at high frequencies and with enhanced key measurement capabilities during R&D so that it simulates the user’s actual application as closely as possible.
