2 Test and measurement experts since 1992 Turnkey systems, consulting, and training National Instruments Certifications Platinum Alliance Partner Electronic Design Specialty 5 Certified LabVIEW Developers 13 Certified LabVIEW Architects 3 Certified TestStand Developers & Architects 12 Certified Professional Instructors Wrote The LabVIEW Style Book 3 NI Certified Training Centers About Bloomy Controls

3 Topic Historical progression of bench-top test systems Advantages of a real time controller to simplify bench-top test

4 Commercial Off The Shelf Instrumentation DMM Signal Generator HiPot Etc… Benchtop Test System

5 4 Implemented by written test procedures Hardcopy Test Procedures

6 5 Read once Referenced on occasion On the fly edits to address problems Usually performed by local knowledge Hardcopy Test Procedures

7 Takes bench space Non-Production uses parts lookup surfing games Support Costs Old OSs PCs to control test equipment

8 7 PC Hardware advanced very fast Support Issues

9 ADD…. Complex operation IT Support Support Costs PCs to control test equipment

10 No Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse Test – Stop – Retest Pass - Fail Headless ATE

11

12 Single board RIO from National Instruments Reads pushbuttons Controls LEDs Operates COTS equipment Communicates with the central PC Processes raw data Executes real time OS LabVIEW RT Not prone to virus attack Reliable Embedded Controller

13 Controls Testing Collects Data One customer reduced the PC count from seventeen to two! System Architecture

14 push the configuration and test set up sends commands to initiate testing receives pass/fail time-stamped data calculates overall SPC information provides status sends alarms Supervisor Software

15 SPC Screen

16 System Status Screen

17 Simple to use Reliable Repeatable test setup SPC Data Collection in real time Process variance is reduced Advantages of Headless ATE
