We are having major problems with rectifier diodes (70 amp 200 volt DO5 devices). We are testing for solder voids by measureing heat retained in the diode after a power pulse, contamination and general construction by a biased temperature cycle. However we do not have a good test to detect microcracking that was found by an analisys house. Does anyone know of a good fast test?
