Electronics Functional Test
Test engineers must build performance- and cost-optimized systems while developing quickly to meet demanding new product introduction (NPI) schedules. When building or buying a test system, remember that the best solutions scale to meet escalating requirements, simplify development, and improve sustainability.
The increasing complexity of electronic products is pressuring engineering teams to deliver more intricate test systems while meeting short NPI schedule expectations. These pressures are compounded by a more competitive manufacturing market, where cost savings from operational excellence can be the difference between leading the market and struggling to compete. To combat these pressures, best-in-class engineering groups are standardizing their approaches to test with reusable frameworks of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components. This is helping them accelerate development while ensuring future scalability. Serving manufacturers directly and through integration partners, NI has been a leader in test for over 40 years. NI’s platform approach to test combines high-performance instrumentation with test development, sequencing, and management software tools to ensure you meet your specifications, time to market schedules, and budgets.
