PFC MicroS: Winning Combination of High Density, Low Profile

One customer uses two different PFC MicroS configurations in a semiconductor test system. The system is a very large climatic chamber that is configurable to allow the test of different semiconductor families. Dependent upon the type of DUT (device under test) the configuration of the power system is adapted to the task. The power system has three 3-phase 10KW main transformers that independently power the climatic chamber compressor, the control system and the test system. The test system uses 48 channels and each channel has its own dedicated test board that is capable of...
