Temperature Forcing Applications

ATE Testing Automation

Enhance even more your ATE integration with temperature forcing systems from Mechanical Devices by installing testing automation fixtures. In-house engineering capabilities allow us to design, develop and implement best solutions for your hassle free and efficient testing.

Optical transceivers Thermal Testing

With state of the art design, Mechanical Devices units stimulate optical transceivers to the desired temperature precisely and consistently by direct contact with a thermal module adapter. Thermal head tip is designed for direct contact with the module through a window in module’s cage. Thermal controller with 19”-rack body case and pneumatic engage and release mechanism makes this solution a perfect fit for production testing.

Transistor devices (MOSFETs) Thermal Testing

Mechanical Devices – Advanced Thermal Solutions – is a leading designer, developer and global supplier of state of the art thermal solutions to provide fast, precise and reliable method for on-chip thermal testing of various transistor devices (MOSFETs, BJTs, IGBTs) in wide range of temperatures. Specially designed quick attach and release feature allows to consistently test multiple devices even having various form factors. Switching from one device to another will take single moments leaving all the spared time to data collection.

Thermal RF Testing

In collaboration with DVTEST, Mechanical Devices is proud to announce a breakthrough in RF shielded thermal testing of integrated circuits. State of the art direct contact temperature forcing systems can now be paired with the industry leading RF enclosure, to allow manufacturers to easily perform IC testing over temperature in a controlled RF environment. “RF Testing at extreme temperatures continues to be a challenge not only for the semiconductor industry but the entire electronics industry as a whole – thanks to this new partnership, we can now provide a robust and viable solution” says Serge Stephan, Bus Dev. Manager of DVTEST.

  • Final Test
  • Product Engineering

Benefits of Fluid-Free Operation

FlexTC/ MaxTC are Fluid Free – the systems do not contain any fluids and it do not require external chillers for their operation.
FlexTC/ MaxTC are self-contained standalone systems that completely eliminate the need for chillers. Chiller-based systems always run the risk of fluid leaks that can cause severe damage to the tester. FlexTC/ MaxTC in that they are fluid free means that their thermal head operates safely on tester heads without risks of spills or leaks.
