Minimize Self-Heating When Testing High-Brightness LEDs

February 16, 2016 Tektronix Experts

What is pulsing and why would I want to use it in my application? What can happen if I don’t pulse my high power semiconductor devices? As seen in Figure 1, pulsed signals are created by turning a voltage or current source’s output on for a specified amount of time and then off for a specified amount of time. It seems like such a simple concept, but is a very important technique in high power semiconductor testing because modern high power semiconductors are continuing to shrink in size compared to their ancestors.
