Traditional ATE systems usually occupy large equipment racks; and anything that can be done to reduce the space needed is always welcomed by the factory floor. Using PXI modular instrumentation technology enables us to downsize automated test equipment (ATE) and also to reduce overall test costs. Downsizing the ATE with a PXI alternative doesn't only mean smaller more cost effective footprint, it also amounts to lower maintenance costs, faster test times, faster development times, and better test coverage.
The modular architecture of a PXI system means that maintenance and serviceability are far simpler. In the event of a failure, a PXI module can be quickly and easily replaced. In addition, PXI requires and recommends a variety of environmental tests to ensure the reliable performance of an ATE system. So by migrating your ATE rack system to PXI it will allow for faster integration, a more reliable performance and simplified maintenance thereby lowering the total cost of ownership.
