High power interface panel improves connectivity

High power interface panel improves connectivity
Trial and error is never a happy path for test engineers to follow, especially so in the case of characterising high power semiconductor devices. It can be time consuming, expensive and unsafe given the high outputs involved in testing power devices. Enhancements to Keithley Instruments’ Parametric Curve Tracer (PTC) configurations that incorporate high power SourceMeter Source Measure Unit (SMU) instruments indicate a new way forward.

Thermal simulation tool cuts product development time

Thermal simulation tool cuts product development time
Thermal performance is crucial in electronics designs and getting it wrong can mean a redesign or even a product recall that costs an awful lot of money and damage to reputation. A solution which heads off these problems has been enhanced in Release 9 of 6Sigma ET, a powerful, intuitive and easy-to-learn thermal simulation tool for use by designers of electronic components and products.

Single slot backplane addresses AMC testing

Single slot backplane addresses AMC testing
The VT072 single slot backplane from VadaTech is a simple tool for benchtop testing of AMCs.  It prevents the requirement of a full MicroTCA chassis for simple power-up and de-bug.  Although the backplane is typically used without a chassis, it does come with mounting holes for use within an enclosure.
