Yelo Launches 5000 Channel Laser Diode Burn-in And Life Test System
Burn-in and life test equipment manufacturer Yelo has launched a 5000 channel laser diode burn-in and life test system. Yelo says the Y4000 offers a major volume upgrade from its existing systems and is capable of production burn-in and accelerated life test of optoelectronic devices. Historically Yelo have offered systems with a 1,000 channel capacity but due to the rising volume demands of the market, the new system has been designed to accommodate a much higher capacity.
The 42U rack based system provides a modular, temperature-controlled environment, which is designed to accommodate low power devices requiring up to 250mA channel current, and can burn-in up to a temperature of 150°C. The system is built comprising 4 separate ovens, allowing burn-in to be performed across 4 different temperature zones simultaneously if required.
Other features include;
· Fully automated software
·Innovative thermal management design that provides controlled temperature accuracy, helping to reduce test time.
·Chiller technology to accelerate the product throughput process
Yelo’s VP Sales and Marketing Martin Collins said, “We understand that the needs of the market are evolving, optoelectronic devices are getting much smaller and volume demands are rising. We wanted to innovate and offer a new solution to our customers. The Y4000 system provides a much higher density than our existing systems. This enables our customers to perform burn-in and life test at much higher volumes with the possibility of taking up less floor space."
The company says the Y4000 is particularly useful for identifying devices that will fail very early in their use, as well as stabilising device operating parameters thus ensuring that every device shipped meets the appropriate quality standards. Yelo representatives will be available to discuss the new system at the CIOE exhibition in Shenzhen and ECOC exhibition in Rome, both of which are being held in September this year.
