129. High Voltage Opto-Coupler Screening Setup

High voltage opto-couplers require special screening and life tests to assure that they will operate properly in the space environment. Unlike typical electrical parts that are screened based on Activation Energy, high voltage opto-couplers are compound devices that also have unique mechanical integration life factors in combination with electrical breakdown acceleration factors. As such, they are subject to much more complex reliability drivers requiring a combination of acceleration testing and flight-specific application testing.
