Switching Circuit Test

Switching Circuit Test

Once the switching circuit had been bread-boarded, the goal was to determine the functionality of this circuit as well as the power consumed. To determine the functionality of this circuit, two separate power supplies were used with varying input voltages. The results of this test may be found in the link at the bottom. To determine the power consumption of this circuit, the input and output voltage and currents were recorded. With this data input power and output power is able to be calculated and with this, the power absorbed by the circuit. This circuit performed as it was intended and is supported by testing results. The test results are shown in the following link (for Excel data please see public section of website):
