The Integrated Cryogenic Electronics Test-bed (ICE-T) is designed for rapid and convenient testing of low-temperature electronics, especially for superconductor electronics, integrated circuits and multi-chip modules. It is completely cryogen-free and can be configured to test a wide variety of devices and ICs.
ICE-T can be reconfigured through user-specified electrical inserts, ranging from standard to fully customized. Completely cryogen free, ICE-T runs on a 3-phase power supply. The modular and versatile design allows inserts to function as liquid helium immersion cryoprobes, without the associated high cost of liquid helium.
Other applications suitable for ICE-T include high-speed superconducting electronic chips for supercomputing applications, process-control monitors and digital diagnostics, high-performance cryogenic analog-to-digital converters for RF receivers, analog low-noise measurements for SQUIDs and SQIFs, and cryogenic semiconductor devices.
