Burn-in & Reliability Testing of Photodiodes

With the rapid advancements in the electronics industry, accelerated life testing or accelerated aging testing has become extremely important as a practical and efficient method of evaluating photodiode semiconductor reliability. Electron Test Equipment manufactures the ATE (Automated Test Equipment) Photodiode Test System which is a portable and scalable system that works with all environmental chambers for accelerated life testing of 64 to 1024 photodiode components at a time.

Versatile Temperature Control

With need for higher accuracy semiconductor devices used in military applications and the rise of 400G communication networks, semiconductor manufacturers are required to test photodiodes in extreme environmental conditions.

The ATE Photodiode System is versatile and will work with your existing environmental chambers or can be supplied with an environmental chamber that can maintain demanding temperature conditions:

  • Sub-zero thermal shock (as low as -75° C)
  • Humidity ( 20% to 95% RH)
  • High temperatures ( up to 180° C) for burn-in and accelerated aging


Test Standards

With advanced software test configurations, you can customize settings that meet various organization test standards for military or telecom such as the Telcordia (Bellcore) GR-468-CORE.

Packaged IC

For packaged ICs, we manufacture a custom interface fixture for packaged photodiodes to ensure proper connectivity and test reliability.

Software Support

Our dedicated support staff provides outstanding training and will help your team configure the software for your application.

Depending on your requirements, the software can be customized to meet your semiconductor test requirements.

When you choose an Electron Test Equipment product you not only get the most advanced semiconductor test equipment – you receive outstanding support and service.
