DPI (Direct Power Injection) Immunity Testing System

DPI Immunity Testing System

The DPI(Direct Power Injection) immunity test method is an immunity evaluation method for semiconductors (IC) standardized by IEC standards.
This test evaluates immunity by directly injecting RF interference power into the IC power supply on the test board on which the IC to be evaluated is mounted.
In the test, it is necessary to gradually increase the test level (power) for each test frequency and check the performance of the IC each time.
In addition, when a malfunction occurs, it is necessary to record the status of the malfunction, which takes a lot of time and effort.
The NoiseKen's DPI immunity test system performs tests from the start of the test to malfunction determination consistently. This is a revolutionary automation system that saves test time and testers' hands.

 

※ DPI:Direct Power Injection

 

  • Compliant with IEC 62132-4 (DPI method).
  • Automatic judgment of IC performance criteria conforming to IEC 62132-1 (Class A/C/D1/D2/E) .
  • Enables IC malfunction judgment with flexible combination up to ten judgment conditions (eight  types of automatic measuring judgments + one mask test judgment + one serial decode judgment).
  • Applicable to power ON/OFF by multiple DC power source control to reset IC when a malfunction occurs.
  • Enables voltage value and reset time setting in accordance with EUT (IC)
  • Reduces the test time greatly with the multi-sweep function.
  • Capable of both TEM-Cell method (IEC 62132-2) and IC Stripline method (IEC 62132-8) testing.

The Multi-Sweep Function

This product has a function called "multi-sweep mode" to reduce measurement time. When the multi-sweep mode is set to 3 steps, measurement is repeated up to 3 times at 1 frequency. However, if there is no malfunction up to the test end level, it will proceed to the next frequency without repeating. By setting a large step value in step 1 (1st step), a small step value in step 2 (2nd step), and a smaller step value in step 3 (3rd step),  this saves time compared to measuring from the start level to the end level with a fixed step value. The figure on the right shows the image of operation when the multi-sweep mode is set to 2 steps. (outline) If a malfunction occurs in step 1, go to step 2 after judging the malfunction class. The start level of step 2 is the same as the test level of the previous OK judgment. If a malfunction occurs in step 2, the malfunction class is judged and then switches to the next frequency.
