PhotoMOS® Relays strengthen and help secure measurement in semiconductor automatic test equipment (ATE) testing application. These devices are used to test semiconductor chips during manufacturing. PhotoMOS® is commonly used in this type of equipment to control the high-speed pulse and for the measurement signal inside the tester head. PhotoMOS® are suitable for these applications as they can control very low-level signals as well as high current signals while maintaining small leakage current and low noise properties. For use in the Functional Test Unit, which transmits a high-speed pulse, we recommend our Low On-Resistance PhotoMOS® to minimize losses. Next, we have the DC unit in which the measurements are being taken. For this, we recommend our Low output capacitance types for more accurate measurements. Lastly, there is the DC power supply unit, in which we recommend our higher capacity PhotoMOS® capable of switching larger loads required for the power supply unit.

Learn how to increase reliability by changing Reed Relays to PhotoMOS. Reed Relays, including Mercury Reed Relays, dominated the market until the introduction of Solid-State devices. In the tester market, there is a growing trend to replace Reed Relays with PhotoMOS Relay solutions to increase long-term performance and reliability. Solid State Relays excel in reliability; the absence of physical contact to provide isolation of the electrical signal causes leakage current. Panasonic's "T-circuit" design significantly reduces leakage current. A solution that uses three separate PhotoMOS Relays to create a circuit optimized for reducing leakage current and maximizing isolation at a high frequency.
Panasonic PhotoMOS® Relays are MOSFET-enabled Solid State Relays featuring low off-state leakage current and stable on-resistance over the component lifetime. Low CxR values, high optical isolation between input and output, and DC and AC / DC load ratings. MOSFET drivers are available in SSOP, SOP 4-pin, and DIP 6-pin.
