Matrix door and Kelvin Sockets

INTRODUCTION
This article describes the setup developments and some of the results obtained for the temperature characterization from -190ºC to more than +300ºC of passive components normally used for space missions, but with a standard operating temperature range in most of the cases. One of the setups used is based on direct contact with Kelvin probes with a multiplexed solution to allow the characterization up to 150 samples in the same thermal cycle. A second measurements setup is used for measurements at higher temperatures based in not standard soldering and the use of a ceramic custom made climatic chamber door.
