AVIEMORE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2012) - Quarch Technology Ltd - leaders in storage test automation - today announced a programmable power supply and measurement module, designed to assist developers and integrators of disk drive technology.
With the widespread adoption of SSD's, the market for disk drives has never been more competitive. The combination of fledgling technology and over 60 SSD manufacturers to choose from makes comprehensive characterization and testing essential. Low power consumption and extremely high reliability, even during power supply fluctuations or faults, are now critical metrics by which drives are judged.
The module released by Quarch Technology today is a cost effective solution to measure power usage, and test performance under virtually any realistic power supply scenario. The module makes it easy to program complex voltage profiles to margin, ramp or interrupt power to a disk drive or similar device.
Integrated measurement hardware simultaneously samples voltage and current on each output channel to provide accurate power measurement and recording.
The module can be easily integrated into existing test systems through its simple command line interface, or used with the free graphical interface for manual control and analysis.
