May 3, 2012 -- Multitest introduced the ecoAmp Kelvin contactor for high-power semiconductor test of 500+ Amperes. It meets the needs of high voltage/high current test with high thermal and mechanical stability.
The contactor, based on Multitest’s Cantilever technology, is used in MOSFET, drivers, IGBT, power modules, and power package (TO, SO and DIP) testing. It has low, stable contacting resistance to achieve equal current symmetry over I/Os within the contactor. Maximum inductance is 4.5nH for 0.5mm pitch. Resistance stability is influenced by the contact spring and the condition of the device pin.
It can be used for temperatures from -60 to +175°C is required, meeting automotive application requirements. Thermal management within the contactor supports temperature stability during test.
The ecoAmp offers a lifespan of 1 million insertions.
Multitest manufactures test equipment for semiconductors. Multitest markets test handlers, contactors, and ATE printed circuit boards. For more information, visit www.multitest.com/ecoAmp
