Paper Abstract

Performance testing of large area mosaic focal planes requires high speed and high volume test methods because of the large number of individual elements to be tested. Extensive use of parallel activities is required to avoid the sequential delays involved in loading, evacuating, cooling, testing, warming, pressurizing, and unloading the test articles. A parallel path production test system designed for automated testing of over twelve thousand detector channels per hour has been built and placed into operation. Operation of the test system will be described and early performance data will be presented.
