Test and burn-in system

Automated test equipment manufacturer Yelo has launched its new automated high volume test and burn-in system which will increase throughput for the testing of optical components for 100G data centres.

Yelo’s market research has identified that the use of optical components in data centres will grow by a factor of 100 over the next eight years. This means that optical component manufacturers need to scale production from 10,000 components per month to 500,000 or even one million per month. This new system for optical component manufacturers allows the burn-in and test of optical components at a much higher volume, with improved yield and at lower labour cost.
