New Era in Testing DUT over Temperature

May 13, 2016 | The process of manufacturing and qualifying IC's consists of many steps while Temperature forcing systems play a crucial role in the final testing process. These environmental tests assure quality and reliability by stressing the device on one hand as well as helping to characterize and validate it on the other hand (making sure manufacturing outcome meets the design requirements). At later stages the temperature testing can support failure analysis effort and root cause analysis. AS common practice we are dealing with few different kinds of temperature forcing systems: Chambers, Thermal Stream systems and Direct Thermal Head systems. In this article I would like to focus on the practical aspects of utilizing Thermal Stream systems and Direct Thermal Head systems.

Pulse Electronics' PIMinator Accessories Zero-In on DAS Network PIM Reduction

May 11, 2016 | Pulse Electronics Corporation introduces two unique and performance-enhancing installation options for its PIMinator® line of distributed antenna system (DAS) in-building ceiling-mount antennas. The DASACHOLDER is a sturdy, plastic, above-ceiling antenna holder that is easy to install, is hidden above the ceiling so it doesn't interfere with the aesthetics of the building, and does not induce passive intermodulation (PIM) in in-building installations. The DASACABSORBER attaches to the plastic holder or surrounding structures and helps mitigate the effects of PIM sources by absorbing reflections on cellular radio frequencies in the transmit and receive bands. The result is a confirmed reduction of PIM energy by as much as 40dB.
