Using compactDAQ and LabVIEW for a Parallel EOL Test and Calibration Station

28 March, 11am SGT/ 2pm AEDT
by Christopher Farmer, Wired In Software

Learn how an 8-slot cDAQ system was selected as the backbone for a 4-way End Of Line Calibration and Final Test Station.  The power and flexibility of LabVIEW allowed for an easy transition from single unit test to multiple unit test, a simple but flexible test engine to control the testing order, as well as maintaining a pressure control system, and communicating to each uut concurrently via a serial-based protocol. Presented by Christopher Farmer, Certified LabVIEW Architect.

Abstraction Layers: A critical consideration in ATE Software Design

29 March, 11am SGT/ 2pm AEDT
by Karina Taylor, EnvisEng

Building an Automated Test System starts with design, not development, and the key to a good ATE design is one that allows for changes in test requirements throughout the project, the ability for multiple engineers to develop the ATE software simultaneously, and ease of maintenance and upgrades over the long-term.

This webinar introduces common ATE development issues, and then covers design tips based on “software abstraction layers” that help to alleviate such issues.
