Keysight’s power device testing solution selected by Semipower
Keysight Technologies Inc of Santa Rosa, CA, USA says that its power device testing solutions have been selected by China-based power device maker Xi’an Semipower Electronic Technology Co Ltd to accelerate and promote the development of next-generation semiconductors.
Semipower’s Power Device Testing Application Center, a comprehensive testing center for power device testing capabilities, has been recognized by the China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS) and International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC). Offering third-party testing qualification, the center is said to be critical to promoting the development of the ‘third-generation semiconductor’ industry (i.e. wide-bandgap semiconductors such as gallium nitride and silicon carbide). Leveraging Keysight’s power device testing solution, the center offers a test platform for such devices to ensure performance and reliably speed market introduction.
Specifically, Semipower chose Keysight’s PD1500A dynamic power device analyzer/double pulse tester to deliver repeatable, reliable measurements of wide-bandgap semiconductors. The off-the-shelf measurement solution is said to enable faster time-to-market by providing quick and reliable results, while ensuring a safe test environment.
“Keysight is committed to innovation in the field of power semiconductor test, and for we work closely with key partners to provide powerful test tools in conjunction with advances of industry-critical technology waves,” says Thomas Goetzl, VP & general manager of Keysight’s Automotive and Energy solutions.
“Since the establishment of Xi’an Power Device Testing Application Center, Keysight has provided us with effective and continuous technical support for 10 years,” says Semipower’s president Luo Yi. “From the initial test system to the latest dynamic test system, Keysight helps us improve and enhance the third generation of semiconductor testing research by continuously optimizing the system,” he adds. “Joining forces with Keysight has enabled Semipower to promote our understanding and research of third-generation semiconductor devices and create a better platform for applications including new energy vehicles.”
