Laser Diode Qualification Testing
Why Use Accelerated Lifetime Testing & Burn-in for Laser Diodes
With the rapid advancements in the electronics industry, reliability is a concern in every laser diode application. Laser diode life testing or accelerated aging is extremely important as part of qualification during product development as well
as for batch testing throughout the production life of the laser.
As well, high-temperature burn-in tests are used in laser diode manufacturing to filter out components that will be prone to premature failure and ensure the remaining lot of laser diodes will meet the acceptable level of reliability based on the test standard used.
Electron Test Equipment manufacturers the PRT-LASER Product Reliability Tester which is a portable and modular system that works with all environmental chambers for accelerated life testing and burn-in tests of up to 1024 laser diode semiconductor components at a time.
The custom PRT-LASER comes with various hardware configurations and is customizable for various reliability test and burn-in conditions for your semiconductor laser diode.
Standard Features include:
- Test up to 1024 semiconductor laser diodes
- Power Monitoring & UPS Backup
- Ethernet Communication
- Custom Input & Output Interface Connectors
- Custom interface control with third-party environmental chambers
Laser Diode Burn-in
The laser diode burn-in test can be used to test up to 1024 laser diodes at a time to identify and remove faulty lasers that would experience pre-mature failure in the field.
With advanced software test configurations, you can customize settings that meet various organization test standards such as the Telcordia (Bellcore) GR-468-CORE, MIL-STD-883E, and Test Method 1016.
