For Immediate Release
Reedholm Systems: RS-100 WBG HTOL-HTRB Reliability Test System
December 18, 2018 Georgetown, TX – Reedholm Systems released a new test system – the RS-100 – which meets the unique needs and challenges of stress, test, and measurement of wide band gap devices (WBG). The stress/measurement needs for these devices stretches the limits of conventional parametric measurement tools. WBG materials challenges and applications are driving divergent needs from those of traditional Si, therefore Reedholm Systems tailors its measurement instrumentation and long-term reliability stress capabilities specifically for the GaN, SiC, GaN on Si, and other WBG devices & materials.
The RS-100 WBG Reliability system delivers two fundamental capabilities:
• First is the capacity to deliver statistically significant sample sizes needed for reliability testing. The base system offers 15 DUT per experiment stress condition and up to 6 simultaneous experiments for a capacity of 90 DUT, with expansions to 270 DUT and 18 simultaneous experiments.

• When paired with a fully integrated Reedholm parametric analyzer, it gives the ability to test both to pass AND to learn. Each experiment is independent of the others, and it is straightforward to switch-in parametric instrumentation for periodic user defined measurements tests and cycles.
A key principal in the design and execution of these systems is the intent for customization to meet stress and test requirements. The challenges of the devices and technologies being analyzed means that there is no one solution for all applications. Therefore, the tools are architected to be readily customized for stress and measurement requirements defined by the customer. This is what allows for a single tailored system that can be used for both HTRB and HTOL reliability requirements, and whereby specific stress requirements for each application are factored into the hardware and software.
The RS-100 (depicted below) is available now, with lead times of about 4 to 5 months customized to WBG requirements.
