Capacitance Simulation Card
Capacitive fuel sensor emulation for NI-SLSC
The SET-1220 can be driven through the RTI or through the SLSC chassis via software. RTI inputs are compatible with LVCMOS, LVTTL and TTL logic levels, have low leakage current and offer 24 SPI channels. They are grouped into four by six channels with common clock and slave select signals.
Each emulation channel has its individual enable input to physically disconnect the current output via a relay. A second relay allows to short circuit the emulation input/output. This feature can be used for failure injection and DUT calibration.
Following points have to be observed while using this card:
- The positive terminal shall be connected to the excitation output of the DUT
- The negative terminal is the output of a current source and shall be connected to a virtual GND referenced to the DUT GND
- Since the emulation utilizes a current source it requires a third terminal that is connected to the DUT GND
- In contrast to a real capacitor does the emulation put a fixed impedance of 1nF in series to 1.5KΩ onto the DUT
- The output resistance of the DUT does not compromise the emulation quality
The SET-1220 does not emulate all physical aspects of a real capacitor and cannot be used to emulate its DC characteristics. The main focus is set on replication of the phase shift between voltage and current over a wide range of capacitance values and a broad frequency bandwidth.
