Automotive and power management device testing requires extensive quality checks, including ensuring that the intended test conditions are applied so that each device under test (DUT) pin is driven with the intended voltage waveforms. This testing step must not expose the DUT pins to voltages outside its absolute maximum ratings (AMR) or to voltage and current spikes. Checking for these is a time-consuming process which often adds to development time. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the Spike Check Automation Tool, available for the ETS-800 and UltraFLEX platforms, as an effective way to automate the oscilloscope and ATE operation to systematically capture the waveforms on the relevant DUT pins and generate reports to makes the spike analysis and waveform documentation simpler and faster.
