    As test systems grow larger with higher channel counts and faster digitization, new techniques are needed for managing and processing the large amount of data being generated. One technique to handle this is with multiple computing nodes to distribute the acquisition, processing and data storage. Current communication busses exist to create a multicomputer system but must often make tradeoffs in t... View full abstract»

  • Advanced architecture for achieving true vertical testability in next generation ATE

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):17 - 23
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1803 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Equivalent test results across maintenance levels have long been an elusive target for both military and commercial users. The fundamental reason for this is that it has been impractical to deploy the same ATE forward at the operations level as well as in support locations and/or depots. Forward deployed ATE tends to be based on requirements for ruggedness, transportability and a small footprint. ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (568 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Re-hosting test program sets (TPS) is a diverse science. Methods of re-host are determined by many multifaceted factors. Some of these factors are: circuit complexity, customer requirements, documentation, optimal circuit coverage, schematics and data availability, existence of and obtainable test specs, legacy TPS history (no-fault-found and could-not duplicate problems or a high quality reliable...

    TPS migration solutions address the problem of legacy ATE systems, which support the validation of military/aerospace systems, experiencing "end of life" issues. A cross section of ATE systems will be reviewed from both a hardware and software perspective, with specific emphasis on the challenges and solutions on TPS's using LASARtrade simulation. Solutions will be presented on how to migrate the ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (441 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The abbreviated test language for all systems (ATLAS, IEEE Std 716) is a higher order language for testing that has been used extensively by the US and foreign militaries and aircraft manufacturers for approximately 40 years. These users have one thing in common: the devices that they test have a much longer service life than the systems on which they are tested. Programs written in ATLAS are easi... View full abstract»

    High test signal power provides multiple advantages within the RF test environment. It can mean greater accuracy of measurements and the ability to evaluate devices over a larger dynamic range. This in turn results in a wider breadth of capability from the test system ensuring coverage of the boundary conditions that may affect system readiness. Long cable runs and switch matrices that consume sig... View full abstract»

    LXI has become an increasingly popular instrumentation platform that is being used in many ATE system designs. It provides simplified programming interface, convenient LAN-based hardware architecture, and the precision synchronization and triggering required by many test applications. When multiple copies of an LXI instrument are used in a system, potential issues can arise if the instruments are ... View full abstract»
