There are several manufacturers that make TLP generators. It's a bit of an investment, but I believe that they can also be rented. Another toolset that is gaining some popularity are ESD scanners. These scanners use TLP like (square wave) pulses injected into ESD sensitive points. One scanner manufacturer also offers a current scanning module that can generate a susceptibility map of a pcb, giving a visual representation of the current spreading on the board.
Thank u for a very useful information. Is there a tool that helps in performing TLP analysis much before going to the compliance testing, during design phase? Are there tools those could help in simulating TLP analysis for the ports prone to ESD?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
