Roadtesters need a variety of test equipment to do the product testing. From the list below, what equipment would you like to have on your bench but do not presently have?
A programmable dc load would be pretty nice to play with.
I would like a "Build a Bench" shopping spree in the Lista catalogue :) Thanks!
I would like an audio spectrum analyzer and some good ratcheting crimpers.
Other items missing from the list include CAD software, mechanical fabrication tooling and an RLC meter.
I picked "other" because I'd like to suggest some software licence roadtest.
What about a Matlab Simscape electrical roadtest?
A personal licence should be a very good incentive to complete a roadtest.
I lack a reliable bench power supply. I currently use a 12V switching PS with some buck/boost modules to generate some standard voltages. At some point maybe I will invest in a bench PB with a collection of nice banna clip connection cables to make my life easier.
I voted for Pattern Generator because it would be nice to have a "protocol aware" unit for testing hardware interfaces. On reflection, it seems like it might be something that I could do as project .
A VNA or Spectrum Analyzer would also be good to have. I'd probably use the Spectrum Analyzer more. I have a pretty basic 100MHz oscilloscope which is great for most things, but it would be great to get a higher frequency mixed-signal oscilloscope with multifunction capability that would replace many of the listed instruments.
