Make Older Gear Work When New Test Equipment Cannot Be Found

VISTA, Calif. - Jan. 5, 2022 - PRLog -- Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post that informs people on the different alternatives available to them due to today's global supply chain challenges that prevents them from finding the specific unit they're looking for. Shortages have led to a great deal of creativity in electronic design and manufacturing when a part cannot be found. Amplifier designers, for example, may have to change transistors and integrated circuits (ICs) and with them the circuit materials that best suit the amplifier. If it is possible to modify an electronic product with available components, then comes the challenge of testing it with the measurement equipment that are available.

A different scenario can arise when the newest solution in semiconductor parameter testing is not available "off the shelf" due to supply-chain issues. Whether for designing or manufacturing a circuit or electronic product, semiconductor device testing must still be performed if needed. A viable test solution may be an older model that is at least in part capable of making the measurements of the newer tester. The Keysight/Agilent Technologies 4155C Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer is an older model that can perform within a major portion of the model B1500A's test limits and can provide a practical test "stand-in" when a model B1500A is not available.
