Reedholm Systems of Georgetown, Texas USA announced that the Company has agreed to collaborate with The Piner Research Group (located on the Texas State University Campus) to develop reliability methods and standards for production test of wide bandgap (WBG) devices. As part of that collaboration, The Piner Research Group will provide technical consulting services to Reedholm Systems.
Reedholm Systems reportedly needs to refine its measurement instrumentation and long-term reliability stress capabilities for the GaN, SiC, GaN on Si, and other WBG devices and materials.
Under the terms of the agreement, Reedholm Systems will install one of its 10kV/50A WBG Parametric Test Systems for die sort measurements and process control of WBG devices. The system can also be extended for reliability stress test specifications for HTRB, HTOL, and HTGB for WBG research projects of Reedholm Systems personnel, the Piner Research Group and Texas State University PhD students.
