Best Practices for Building an Automated Test System Webcast Series 2016

Increasing device complexity and technology convergence are driving test systems to become more flexible, while cost pressures are demanding longer system lifetimes. A software-defined, modular architecture is the only way to accomplish these objectives. Modular instruments deliver flexible, software-defined solutions for complex measurement challenges, from DC to microwave frequencies.

This four-part, interactive webcast series covers the basics and the recommended process for building test systems from start to finish. Attend this live webcast series to learn test engineer best practices that range from software, instruments, and switch selection to maintenance and deployment strategies.

This series is intended for test engineers, technicians, and managers who are looking to improve the throughput and lower the cost of test applications.
