The NI PXIe-4154 battery simulator is a specialized programmable power supply optimized for mobile device test. It features a 6 V, 3 A programmable output designed to simulate a lithium-ion battery cell’s transient speed, output resistance, and 2-quadrant operation (source/sink). Critical to many RF and wireless applications, the simulator’s ultrafast transient response time - software-selectable to <20 µs or <40 µs - allows it to rapidly respond to changes in load current with minimal voltage dip. This makes it ideal for powering devices under test (DUTs) such as RF power amplifiers, cellular handsets, and a variety of other mobile devices. To model the behavior of a battery even more accurately, you can use the onboard programmable output resistance of up to 1 Ω to simulate a battery’s internal resistance. For quiescent and standby current measurements, the NI PXIe-4154 features integrated current measurement with down to 1 µA sensitivity. It also offers a supplemental 8 V, 1.5 A charger simulator channel for testing power management ICs along with the battery simulator channel.

Both channels on the NI PXIe-4154 feature integrated voltage and current readback with up 200 kS/s continuous acquisition rates, which is ideal for characterizing transient behavior. You also can sequence and trigger outputs and measurements via the PXI backplane for synchronization with digital I/O and RF instrumentation.
