Increase throughput and up-time of automated test equipment

Semiconductor manufacturers are placing greater demands on Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) companies to design test systems that will meet the ever-increasing IC demand as quickly and reliably – and with as little added cost as possible. Learn how the Vicor modular approach to PDNs enables ATE manufacturers to readily scale power levels and support different voltages to enable rapid development and fast time-to-market.
