Power Semiconductor Device Testing
From the early stages of design to the point when it’s ready for market, a new power device undergoes a gamut of test and characterization activities, and you face many steps in bringing that device to market, including:
- Designing new devices to meet evolving needs
- Characterizing full performance of new designs
- Preparing the device for production
- Meeting reliability standards for commercial use
- Implementing the device in actual designs
- Evaluating existing devices and designs for new application requirements
