The Model 8010 High Power Device Test Fixture provides safe and easy connections for testing packaged high power devices at up to 3000V or 100A. The Model 8010 provides connections for a high voltage SourceMeter SMU instrument (Model 2657A), one or two high current SourceMeter SMU instruments (Model 2651A), and three low power SourceMeter SMU instruments (other Series 2600B or Model 4200-SCS source measure unit (SMU) instruments). This allows devices with two terminals (diodes) or three terminals (transistors) or even four or five terminals to be characterized safely and accurately. The Model 8010 has full interlock capability for up to six SourceMeter SMU instruments. The Model 8010 has integrated protection circuits that protect the low voltage SourceMeter SMU instruments from high voltages the Model 2657A can output should a device fault occur. The Model 8010 includes both a high current (100A) and a high voltage (3000V) test socket. Various replacement test socket modules are available, including TO-247, TO-220, axial lead, and a blank socket module that allows building a custom socket. In addition to standard banana jumpers, the Model 8010 has rear-panel scope and thermal probe ports to simplify system integration.
