Accel-RF Corporation, a producer of turnkey RF automated reliability test instruments reports that the company has “unplugged” its RF SMART Fixture testing system from their automated test platform and made it available for benchtop testing. The NEW Quantum SMART Fixture is a programmable self-contained module testing system with DC bias and RF stimulus testing.
The system can synchronize sequenced, independent pulsed-bias and pulsed-RF signals to a DUT or a remote fixture. A user interface that is compatible with Accel-RF’s LIFETEST software controls the signals. The Quantum SMART fixture has embedded firmware in the microprocessor that can actively control temperature and monitor a remote DUT.
Roland Shaw, president and CEO of Accel-RF commented, “Implementing Accel-RF’s Quantum SMART solution provides both accelerated and enhanced return on investment (ROI) by launching products into the market at a much faster pace.” Shaw added, “The streamlined productivity of this test solution is crucial for rapid insertion of the new generation of Gallium-Nitride (GaN) and Silicon-Carbide (SiC) compound semiconductor technologies envisioned in key commercial and military market sectors.”
