The semiconductor suppliers today primarily develop new devices for the commercial consumer electronics markets where devices are typically tested from 0°C to +70°C. However the demand for sophisticated electronics in the military, space and industrial markets is higher than ever. Many of the applications in these markets must exist in a harsh, high-temperature environment. The typical operating temperature range for industrial applications is -40°C to +85°C and -55°C to +125°C for military and space applications. The only way to assure commercial temperature range devices can operate at these extended temperature ranges is to perform full AC/DC/Functional testing to “Upscreen” them for these harsher environments.
Integra has successfully upscreened millions of devices for our customers.
