Optimizing Thermal Testing for RF

Many details help choose the best RF test systems for thermal testing. New technology temperature controllers and automation are a clear part of the equation. Understanding of some of the basics in heat transfer and general physics is always very important as well. Invest some time thinking through the trade-offs of many options will help one make the right choices. For example, think about Liquid Nitrogen cooling vs mechanical refrigeration, small batches vs larger batches, appropriate levels of integration, automation and test data collection. Big picture efficiencies of facilities including valuable square footage, lab power and manpower are important while remembering essentials of safety and ease of use.
