SAN DIEGO, Nov. 30, 2013 — Vektrex, a supplier of cutting-edge instrumentation and systems to the solid-state lighting industry, has released the SpikeSafe400 DC current source, the latest addition to the SpikeSafe product line. Leveraging the foundation of technology from the industry-standard SpikeSafe 200, the SpikeSafe400 DC increases the voltage capability of the product line up to 400 V and allows current settings as low as 10 mA, addressing the needs of the industry to expand to higher voltages while maintaining accuracy at lower currents. The SpikeSafe400 DC offers 96 percent efficiency, is programmable with individual channel control, and has an easy to use software interface. Its eight output channels, 400-V compliance, and wide-ranging drive current capability give it the flexibility to drive high voltage chip-on-board devices efficiently in reliability test applications, the company said. Applications for the SS400 DC a great choice include LED reliability and burn-in, LM80, LM79, LM85, CIE 127, DC light measurement, research and development, and semiconductor testing.
