Intelligent Touch-Screen Interface: An intelligently designed, multi-color touch-screen makes the system easy to set up and operate. On-screen graphics present the temperature setpoint, air temperature, DUT (device under test) temperature, airflow rate, and current system status. Menus enable the operator to change parameters by touching the desired selections. In addition, a password protection feature makes it possible for the test engineer to determine operator accessibility to essential software segments.
Sophisticated Temperature Cycling: Temperature profiles are easily set up on the touch screen. Profiles can be saved and recalled for use or export. Data entered can be as simple as two temperatures and soak times, or as intricate as a 99 step cycle- each with a unique temperature, soak time, or ramp rate. T-2500 products may be used for temperature cycling per MIL STD-883C for thermal stressing of semiconductor devices.
Easy PM and Calibration: Thermonics' Precision Temperature Forcing Systems are field proven for durability, performance and reliability. The system can be relied upon for use in around-the-clock production environments. Maximum up time is achieved with a modular design that promotes quick and easy implementation of preventive maintenance activities. Calibration of the system is facilitated by a series of software screens that guide you through the procedure in a systematic manner. In addition, diagnostics screens report system malfunctions in an easy to understand format that assists with servicing of the system.
ATE Compatibility: Remote operation of the system is accomplished with an IEEE-488.2 interface. A library of remote communication commands enable easy configuration, monitoring, and actuation of critical setup and operating parameters; such as temperature set points and soak times from any remote computer or terminal. A standard ATE interface providing start test, end of test, and class signals is provided to assure full ATE compatibility which includes the ability to communicate with all main ATE and Rack and Stack test systems.
Efficient Air Dryer: To ensure the use of clean and dry air, a built-in air dryer removes water vapor and particles from the compressed air source. This heatless air dryer lowers the dew point of the source air to approximately-80C.
ESD Protection: Grounding of all surfaces and air pathways prevents the development of electro-static discharge (ESD) which can damage sensitive semiconductor components.
Optional Air Ionizer: ESD protection can be further enhanced by inclusion of the optional air ionizer. The ionizer provides an ion balance that prevents a charge from developing in the air stream and removes charges from non-conductive surfaces. Conductive silicone rubber thermal caps and insulation sheets are also available.
On-Screen Graphics: Numerical representations of the DUT, air and set-point temperatures continuously display. A screen that presents the data in graphical form similar to a chart recorder is provided at the touch of a key. Logged data can be stored. See examples ar right.
