Reduce Risk for Electronics Automated Test Set Development

Engineers creating production test solutions for board electronics, system controllers and line replaceable units (LRUs), and power electronics systems need to reduce the cost and risk associated with developing and maintaining automated test sets (ATSs) that must last the lifecycle of the asset. Future-proofing the software architecture can account for the inevitability of instrumentation obsolescence. The key requirements for a solution like this are:

 

  • A modular software architecture and reusable libraries to accelerate development across multiple projects and programs.
  • Collaboration features for numerous and often geographically dispersed developers who are working in multiple languages.
  • Minimal time and risk involved in adding new system capabilities or managing obsolete instrumentation.   

Electronics Manufacturing Test Solution for Aerospace and Defense

  • Off-the-shelf application software provides a higher-level starting point for test.
  • Custom software can be created with modern programming languages such as G, C, C#, Python, and more.
  • InstrumentStudio™ software helps monitor and interactively debug system errors.
  • SystemLink™ software helps you create deployment packages, manage system configurations, streamline data aggregation and insight, and connect to manufacturing execution systems (MESs).

Solution Advantages

" Our Automated Test Engineering team was able to achieve up to 60 percent code reuse for each automated test and reduce overall test development time by up to 9X. Using the NI certification program, coupled with in-house training, we were able to develop the skills necessary to produce robust, flexible code—and maintain it across more than 200 test benches."
