Although oscilloscopes and spectrum analyzers have flashy features, and get most of the attention, there is no instrument more useful to an electronics engineer than the DC Power Supplies. It’s used for nearly every design, prototype, and test activity, and a supply that doesn’t have the right features, can not only hinder your productivity, but compromise your designs as well. That being the case, it might be a good idea to take a look at the lab supply that you’re currently using and think about upgrading.
Here is what you should consider when choosing Programmable DC Power Supplies features:
Linear output regulation
PC control functions.
