Abstract:
This procedure was established to identify APDs on the bench that are grossly malfunctioning (drawing microamperes of current on any given part of the array). This procedure is meant as a final checkout prior at the installation site prior to mounting. This technique DOES NOT in anyway supplement the electrical characterization testing done by Hamamatsu or QA measurements performed at Caltech. APDs that demonstrate gross errors on this tester or data read back issues invisible to these measurements are sent to Caltech for a full evaluation.

Notes and Changes:
Revise documentation to use the Keithley 6487 picoammeter rather than the 6517 electrometer. Document includes schematic of interface box and additional information about temperature and humidity measurements and monitoring.
