Your Equipment Comes To Us

We're ready to test and certify your smaller components here at our lab in Alameda, California, just across the bay from San Francisco

For larger systems, we recommend testing at your location, or using our Testing Partner program.

In-house services

  • Voltage sag immunity testing, certification, training
  • Design review and advice – power portion of semiconductor tools
  • We specialize in SEMI F47SEMI E6SEMI S23IEEE 1100, and IEC 61000-4-30 certification, and we are glad to provide firm, fixed-price quotations
  • Virtually every major supplier of power supplies to the semiconductor industry, and every major contractor manufacturer, uses Power Standards Lab for SEMI F47 certification

In-house Calibration Standards

  • 0.01 % 50 Vrms – 500 Vrms source, 45 Hz – 200 kHz
  • 0.02 % 0.1 – 2.5 Arms source
  • 0.0001 %, 10.0000 Vdc source
  • 0.001% Decade resistors from 0.1 ohms to 1 Megohm
  • 0.1% true RMS voltmeters and current meters
  • Digital oscilloscopes, including 1 kV and 10 kV probes
  • For calibration, PSL maintains two ultra-accurate references: a 0.1 ohm resistor (0.09999863 ohms), and a 1 volt source ( 1.00000096 volts)
  • We use these references individually to calibrate our calibration instruments, and we combine them to generate reference currents
  • Our references are periodically calibrated at NIST directly against the United States National Working Standards
  • For calibrating higher AC voltages – one of our particular interests – we use a calibration-grade ratio transformer to bring the unknown voltage into our calibration range

  • 14 kVA resistive load bank, expandable
  • 480 V, 200 Amp, three-phase continuous precision sag generators
  • 6 kV, 5 kA shaped impulse generator
  • 2.5 kV AC/DC high-potential leakage tester
