As the technology of optoelectronic components is maturing, its applications are broadening as well. Take laser diodes for example, they are no longer limited to communication applications but have expanded into consumer products. Photonics test solutions mainly focus on testing optoelectronic components, such as photodiode, LED, EEL, and VCSEL. They can also apply to configurations from upstream to downstream processes, including wafer, laser bar, bare chip, CoS, and TO-CAN. Chroma's system integration technology uniquely combines automation equipment with precision current sources, temperature controllers, and automated optical measurement instruments to perform an array of electrical, optical power, wavelength, near-field and far-field optics, and other optoelectronic characteristic and aging tests.
Chroma offers precision instruments such as laser drivers, photodetector monitoring, and temperature controllers. These lab class instruments are often integrated into production solutions for wafer probe test, burn-in and device or module characterization then reinforced with inspection, metrology, robotics, Industry 4.0 and more.
