Design Validation Test (DVT)
Design Validation Testing is a critical step in the path of ensuring a successful product. Characterizing and validating a Device Under Test (DUT) will focus on acquiring many vectors (voltage, power, frequency, etc) across multiple scenarios, generating large volumes of data for analysis. We provide test systems that support your complex requirements with proven software tools optimized for test and measurement systems while using commercial off the shelf (COTS) hardware whenever possible.
Designing a successful characterization and qualification system can lead to a faster production test deployment, as many of the NRE invested into your DVT setup can be leveraged later down the product test process. In many cases we work with customers to create a DVT application whose subset can easily be transferred over to a production test system thereby adding value to their NPI process by minimizing the amount of NRE required throughout the product test cycle.
Automated Test System Overview
Our Automated Test Systems use commercial off the shelf (COTS) whenever possible – offering you the latest innovative technology in your vital test systems. We design small-footprint and rugged systems ranging from bench, half rack, and full rack setups utilizing a range of modular to traditional rack instrumentation – all controlled and integrated using a single software platform.
We help customers:
Existing Instrumentation or New
Many requirements have an existing instrument setup that operators use in a manual fashion. When looking to automate this process, the good news is we can leverage this instrumentation to automate this manual procedure.
Alternatively, it is common for customers to want a new setup that is custom-tailored for their requirement yet flexible enough to allow for multiple product configurations/families. For requirements such as these, we elect to deploy systems that offer flexible measurements, rapid test configurations that leverage a single software environment, and fast execution times by utilizing built-in math and signal processing functions.
