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.
