Vacuum Tight Feed -Through For Thermo Vacuum Testing of Electronic Sub-Assemblies
A Vacuum tight feed-through (Flange to be mounted on Th-Vac chamber) using off the shelf “D” type connectors for the thermo-vacuum testing of electronics components and sub-assemblies. Conventional test set-up is shown in Fig-1. Flanges of such type especially with “D” type with co-axial contacts and normal pins were developed and are being used for Test and evaluation of electronics packages. The technology could be offered under a licensing agreement.
Sector: Electrical & Electronics
Area of Application: Thermo-vacuum testing of space grade sub-assemblies of Payloads, Spacecraft or Launch vehicles etc. Electronics components characterization in vacuum. Potential use in Vacuum based coating chambers, Semi-conductor industry, Vacuum based coolers development. Also useful to Non-vacuum chambers user in industries and scientific organizations. This technology also can be used to make cheaper electrical feed-thru for all vacuum/non-vacuum based equipments used in ground test systems.
