Further information:


With the measurement technology presented, components can be individually stressed and their states can be documented during the entire test phase via continuous monitoring. Causes of failure can thus be analysed better and more specifically. Characterisation and marketing of semiconductor circuits and their technological manufacturing processes can be improved with the new environment.

The test environment was developed for HTOL (High-Temperature Operating Life Test) investigations on reliability and life time. It is modular and enables time- or cycle-based tests at up to 175 °C on up to 128 components simultaneously. These are not controlled in parallel with identical patterns, but an individual test sequence is generated for each individual component, during which digital and analogue parameters can be continuously observed.

Core topic

Modular and mobile test systems

Test capabilities are an integral part of all application developments. We research modular test systems that can be adapted flexibly and quickly to new challenges through optimised functional test units.

Service for R&D

Test and characterisation

We test, characterise and qualify your circuits, sensors and systems. Based on our excellent pool of measurement equipment, we develop an individually adapted test environment for measurements on wafers and individual components.
