Tough Testing Challenge: Measuring RDSon and VCEsat in Biased Chuck Systems – AN125
High power devices built on silicon carbide and other types of substrates achieve maximum performance through use of vertical structures with the drain or collector at the bottom of the stack. Screening high power transistors also requires measurement of low level on resistance and saturation voltage. Click here for the full applications note Cost Effective Service Agreements
Most customers enjoy significant savings by having service agreements in place. Besides a lower net price on repairs, customers with contracts receive discount pricing on the order of other goods and services. Agreements can be structured in a number of ways, either just for repairs, or for a combination of support hours plus timely repairs. Contracts run a full year, the price of a single system annual agreement is $6,000, coverage for two systems is $8,000, three systems $10,000 and four or more are priced at $12,000. We recommend some combination of repairs and hours so that help can be provided without delay to help trouble-shoot during down situations. Coverage starts once payment is received. Please email [email protected] if you wish to consider an agreement. Please let me know if this has your support and we can prepare a contract/quote. Click here for further details

On behalf of the entire Reedholm Systems team, we want to thank everyone that has helped make our first full year of operation a sucecess and a profitable one to boot.
We provide comprehensive support to the installed Reedholm base, covering repairs, module and assembly sales, technical support, as well as the successfull sales and installations of systems. We’ve also signed a comprehensive agreement with STAr for sales and support activities throughout the Pacific Rim.
We have a number of improvements in the works. As detailed on our web site, our instrumentation modernization design effort is underway, starting with a surface mount version of the DMM-16 module. We also have software modernization activities to discuss, including a migration to a Linux version.
We are also leveraging our experience in Wide Band Gap device testing to the reliability realm and building a constant current packaged reliablity test system specifically for GaN HEMT devices.
If you are interested in any of the above, or have different test interests, please reach out to us. We are here to help.
Here’s wishing everyone a prosperous 2018,
