DPA Components International
Custom Closed Cycle System

  • 10°Kelvin to 400°Kelvin sample test range
  • Removable test stage
  • Custom stand allows for lift and rotation of system
  • Low vibration
  • Remote compressor setup
  • Optical bench mounting optional
Our cryogenic lab facility includes the following:
  • Continuous flow cryostats cooled with liquid nitrogen and liquid helium from a self-pressurizing storage Dewar.
  • Closed-cycle cryostats which consists of helium gas being pumped through a chamber using a refrigeration system from Sumitomo Cryogenics. This closed system is suitable for temperature cycling between 10°Kelvin to 400°Kelvin.
  • Component Analysis and Data Modeling using NI software-connected test & measurement systems.
  • System Automation and Data Acquisition using Lake Shore temperature controllers and real-time chart recording software.
  • Customized Fixture Design which allows us to test an array of components including:
  1. Capacitors
  2. Temperature sensors
  3. FPA’s
  4. Resistors
  5. RTD’s
  6. Connectors
  7. Diodes
  8. MOSFET’s
  9. Integrated circuits & modules
