Abstract
INVESTIGATE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR A SEMICONDUCTOR BASED TIMED FAULT MODULE: PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS, ELECTRICAL SPECIFICATIONS, ERGONOMIC REQUIREMENTS, POSSIBLE CONFIGURATIONS, AND LEVEL OF USER EXPERTISE NECESSARY TO SUCCESSFULLY UTILIZE THE ADAPTER. DESIGN, PROTOTYPE, AND EVALUATE A DISCRETE COMPONENT VERSION WITH DATA TO DETERMINE CUSTOM LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION/PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC ARRAY MANUFACTURE POSSIBILITIES. THE ADAPTER MODEL WOULD FIT IN EXISTING EQUIPMENT MODULES AND CONNECT TO VARIOUS CIRCUIT COMPONENTS. POWER WOULD BE SUPPLIED BY UNIT TO BE FAULTED. ADAPTER WOULD BE CURRENT LIMITED TO PREVENT EXCESSIVE HEATING AND OPERATE WITH VARIOUS STANDARD CIRCUIT VOLTAGES. ONE ADAPTER WOULD BE "UNIVERSAL" ALLOWING FLEXIBILITY IN FAULT LOCATION. FAULT WOULD OCCUR AFTER A SPECIFIED VOLTAGE CONDITION OR SIGNAL CONDITION. THIS MODULE, BY MORE REALISTIC FAULT INSERTION, WOULD GREATLY ENHANCE PERFORMANCE BASED TRAINING ON MODERN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENTS AND RESULT IN COST SAVINGS, TIME SAVINGS, AND GREATER INSTRUCTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS OVER PRESENT METHODS.
