Standardize Production Test Software for PCBAs and Electronic Devices

The vast majority of test project man-hours are spent on software development, so the choices that teams make in software tools and architecture have significant impact on deployment schedules. Standardizing software across a team or organization increases both efficiency and proficiency, lowering the risk of missed deadlines and improving test quality and reliability. Test software must:


  • Provide complete coverage for current and future test requirements
  • Operate within the expected cycle-time limit
  • Design, develop, and deploy within a production schedule
  • Provide systems information and test data to meet process requirements

NI's Production Test Software Solution

  • TestStand and LabVIEW software provide rapid development of complex test steps and sequences.
  • SystemLink™ software deploys updates and democratizes data insights to optimize operational efficiency.
  • PXI instrumentation drivers integrate seamlessly to ensure complete and accurate test coverage without having to rely on a lot of additional software.

Solution Advantages

“The NI platform (especially LabVIEW and TestStand) has greatly increased our productivity and is a department standard. It probably saves us at least 40 hours on each project.”

-Makenna Shaske, Test Development Engineer, Benchmark Electronics
