Mitigate environmental hazards in GaAs device shear testing

Mitigate environmental hazards in GaAs device shear testing


If we learned anything from 2020, it is that the health and safety of our environment matters. With this in mind, we are proud to introduce our unique, first-in-class work holder solution for supporting the health and safety of cleanroom operators working with Gallium-Arsenide (GaAs) semiconductor device shear testing.

Vacuum-safe shear testing work holder

The work holder uses a vacuum to apply a region of negative pressure over the shear testing site. This vacuum will remove any hazardous materials generated in the test process to ensure a clean and safe environment for the operator.

The vacuum-safe shear testing work holder is compatible with any Sigma and seamlessly integrates with your existing part requirements and cleanroom infrastructure. If necessary, you can customize both the waffle-pack dimensions and vacuum connections to support your needs.
