We at Microchip use the Bode 100 for all power supply design and validation processes in our apps groups around the globe as well as for troubleshooting customer designs in the field. It became an essential piece in our daily work, covering component characterization during filter modeling and designs, system and advanced, non-linear control loop validation in terms of PSRR, input and output impedance, bandwidth, stability in AC/DC, DC/DC and DC/AC converters, battery chargers and LED drivers. Having the capabilities to run these measurements in an easy way on any kind of converter further became a vital part of our internal education program for new hires and young engineers. What however, really makes the difference is the absolute outstanding support provided by OMICRON Lab.
It’s just like with - air… once you tasted it after being born into a new world, you cannot imagine how you could possibly have ever existed without it.
We have been using OMICRON Lab's Bode 100 in all our workshops for over 10 years.
The instrument is fantastic, great measurements, easy to use, intuitive software with comprehensive user-guide and lots of easy to follow application notes and videos. I highly recommend the Bode 100 for your measurement needs.
My experience with Bode 100 is excellent. A great analyzer from very low frequencies up to 50MHz. The instrument occupies very little space on the laboratory table and is very useful for my EMI/EMC and RF work in design and troubleshooting. I use it with voltage, current, and near field probes to analyze frequency response in components, circuits, and resonant structures. As an additional comment, I like the software capabilities to save and export measurements so you can report or simulate in your preferred CAD tool if needed. For my teaching activities with both students at University and engineers in companies worldwide is a great help. I recommend it.
Bode 100 together with the Bode Analyzer Suite is a great tool to easily get the data we need for projects. I love it! We at Microchip use the Bode 100 for all power supply design and power workshop. It has been helping me on so many projects include server power, e-mobility charger, solar inverter, LED driver and UPS. It is very important for us to measure real plant, fine tune system loop and complete projects. Moreover, it even helped me to solve a problem with measuring PSRR on a board directly, and solve another issue with measuring accurate RLC on the board.
Trust me, you will love it!
We’ve been using the Bode 100 in research and development for designing a new generation of high-voltage power supplies. Within days of arrival in the lab it became an indispensable part of our workflow. The ability to analyze and visualize the stability of power supply designs had dramatically reduced the time spent on countless tasks, and eliminated what used to be ages of trial and error. No more weeks of turning knobs just to find out what doesn’t work!
We highly recommend the Bode 100, and the support and training from OMICRON Lab have been second to none.
SPECTANO 100 delivers very accurate and reliable results, even from small sample sizes, making it ideal for investigations in a laboratory environment. Its maximum output voltage of 200 V peak also allows small samples of highly insulating material to be measured without the need for an additional voltage booster. Measurements using small sample sizes simplify the process in the long run. In addition, screening tests become easier, which is why the SPECTANO 100 can also be used for the analysis of curing reactions.
Bode 100 provides HW engineers with insight into component parasitics and performance of feedback systems. Better understanding of the design and components leads to a shorter design time and a more robust design. Bode Analyzer Suite provides various export options, allowing HW designers to mix ideal and vendor supplied models with real world measurements. Quick data export also simplifies the documentation process. From PDN impedance profile, through power stage transfer function, to filter loading/biassing effects, Bode 100 is one of the most versatile measurement tool you can equip your laboratory with. Backed by great support, comes with intuitive and professional control software.
Bode 100 is a "must-have" for every hardware laboratory.
I was using Bode 100 in both my jobs - HW development for automotive. And its probably my most favorite instrument, mostly for easy to use interface, time saving analysis in pretty wide frequency range. It helps me a lot during design and since Bode 100 is able to measure really fast I got some extra time to experiment and learn something new during this measurement, which leads me to a deeper understanding of electronics at all.
But what I appreciated most is OMICRON Lab's support and training like the Power Analysis and Design symphosium and their materials which are great prepared and educative.
At QED Wire Lines we use the Bode 100 for impedance readings as part of our AutoCoat Technology. The unit is able to provide accurate, repeatable and continuous measurements allowing for precise closed control loops. Apart from the inherent quality of this multipurpose instrument, we were amazed by the exceptional technical support provided by OMICRON Lab. Not only in the high level of technical knowledge their team possesses, but even more so in their capability to assist in the creation of custom solutions. In order to integrate this component, we needed a deeper level of understanding of its communication protocol, to which the team were very supportive. It is very rare to find customer service of this level!
Our students use the Bode 100 to analyze components, analog circuits and power circuits in lab sessions, thesis work and also in research work. We really appreciate the ease of use und the good quality of the results.
SPECTANO 100 is an easy-to-use and open system for various applications with simultaneous high sensitivity to determine the complex permittivity of solid materials with different layouts.
The SPECTANO 100 is a straightforward and easy-to-use system for measuring the complex permittivity of insulating materials. Our students appreciate the self-explanatory software, which minimises the time required for training. The compact size of the device adds flexibility and enables us to connect it with various sample cells around the laboratory, including those for liquid insulation.
