Burn-in and life test equipment manufacturer Yelo has launched a 5000 channel laser diode burn-in and life test system.  Yelo says the Y4000 offers a major volume upgrade from its existing systems and is capable of production burn-in and accelerated life test of optoelectronic devices, enabling customers to get the raw laser life time data they need.

Yelo’s VP Sales and Marketing Martin Collins said, “We understand that the needs of the market are evolving, optoelectronic devices are getting much smaller and volume demands are rising. We wanted to innovate and offer a new solution to our customers. The Y4000 system provides a much higher density than our existing system. This enables our customers to perform burn-in and life test at much higher volumes with the possibility of taking up less floor space.”

The company says the Y4000 is particularly useful for identifying devices that will fail very early in their use, as well as stabilising operating parameters thus ensuring that every device shipped meets the appropriate quality standards. Yelo representatives will be available to discuss the new system at the CIOE exhibition in Shenzhen and ECOC exhibition in Rome, both of which are being held in September this year.

Yelo is a manufacturer of automated test equipment for the photonics and electronics industries and is based in Northern Ireland. Founded in 1983, it has a team of 40 including; Electronic engineers, mechanical design engineers, software developers and test/commissioning/support engineers. It currently has over 300 test systems installed internationally, with a major presence in the USA, Asia and Europe. In response to a growing demand for its products, the company opened a new £2 million facility in November 2017 at Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland.
