Thermal Analyzer PCB Adapter Cards
Analysis Tech Thermal Analyzer PCB Adapter Cards comprise a portion of the electrical interface between the Phase 12 Thermal Analyzer fixturing (Still Air Box, Wind Tunnel, JEDEC Heat Sunk Fixtures, etc.) and the DUT (device-under-test). PCB Adapter Cards provide a convenient means of connecting to the electrical signals from the Phase 12 Thermal Analyzer required for device powering and junction temperature sensing. For board mounted components (typically IC's), the Adapter Card is mounted directly to the Thermal Test Coupon to which the part is mounted. For discrete components (typically power devices), the Adapter Card is connected to the DUT by short hook-up wires.
Thermal Analyzer PCB Adapter Cards are available in two varieties; General Purpose Adapter Cards, and Device Specific Adapter Cards. The General Purpose Adapter Card is intended for DUT's that do not require external discrete components (resistors, capacitors, diodes, etc.) for device powering, and the Device Specific Adapter Card is intended for DUT's that require these components. Device Specific Adapter Cards can be ordered from Analysis Tech pre-wired for the individual device types that you want to test! Contact the Analysis Tech technical staff for more information.
