What is state-of-the-art testing software?
You want your systems test software to be friendly and flexible but you also want it to be thorough. You want it to be friendly because you don’t want to depend on the software company to solve all the needs that come up every day. You want to be able to create your own system testing procedures on your own. You want it to be flexible, because you want to be able to design your testing routines to fit your particular needs. Finally you want it to be thorough, because you don’t want anything to fall through the cracks.
Autotest proprietary software APG for Windows™ is the most flexible and customizable software in the industry. APG serves as a friendly interface with any hardware component and allows users to program and design system testing procedures to meet any number of different ATE system testing needs. Autotest has the ability to drill down to the source code to write special applications to meet very non-standard requirements. This is possible because Autotest owns and controls the source code of its software.
APG for Windows™ is really a suite of programs that do just about everything you need to do for power supply testing. One of the friendliest features is a questionnaire that helps you initialize the application and design your own tests. No other testing software can claim this feature. How about self-testing abilities? You need it, you’ve got it. APG for Windows™ is built with the unique self-testing philosophy that characterizes all Autotest solutions.
All Autotest solutions are built with the idea that the user can test and calibrate the functioning of the entire solution and its parts, generally without the help of Autotest engineers. Self-testing is essential and unique. Without this, you don’t know if the testing machine is working or not. Self-testing tells you that nothing is broken, or that it is. This feature allows the user to determine if the problem resides in the tester, fixtures or the unit under test (UUT). This allows the test system not only to test itself but also to be calibrated by the customer or end user.
Now, that’s state-of-the-art testing software!
