I need an engineer to electrically reverse engineer a common engine sensor and to generate a report on the test results. Engineer must have access to a lab to run test setup and test measurement equipment.
The sensor is an air flow/air temperature sensor. So an experiment would need to be performed to control airflow and measure with respect to some sort of calibrated meter through some sort of tube or duct.
For the air temperature readings, ideally, I would like to get in a full range from -40C to 125C, but am open narrower ranges, if the freelancer doesn't have access to that sort of equipment. This test would also need some sort of experimental setup.
The report will feed design constraints to a new product design, so, if things go well, I would be open to extension to the concept product design and, eventually, design validation.
In summary, the scope of this project would be:
1. Testing and Generation of EPPS (Electrical Product Performance Spec) for an Automotive MAF sensor
a. Air Flow Experiment
Approval of experimental setup
iI. Deliverables: Pictures of Experimental Setup, Raw data Output signal vs.
Air Temperature Experiment
i. Approval of experimental setup
Ii. Deliverables: Picture of experimental setup, Raw Data Graph of output pin resistance vs.
Power Pin Characterization
i. Max Current draw for each power pin (+5VDC, +12VDC)
ii. Power Pin Impedance
Min/Max voltages for each power pin (2x)
Max input voltages to the power pins
d. Deliver EPPS document
i. Deliverables: the report
