New System Architected to Optimize Digital Bus and Real-time Testing
of Circuit Boards, Assemblies and Systems
NORTH READING, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
HS Functional test system joined Teradyne’s
(NYSE: TER) Spectrum family of functional ATE today at AUTOTEST in St.
Louis, MO. Designed around—and ready for—Teradyne’s High
Speed Subsystem (HSSub) instrumentation, the Spectrum HS is aimed at
circuit boards, assemblies and boxes requiring digital bus, mixed-signal
or real-time test.
Dan Walsh, Marketing manager for Teradyne’s Defense
and Aerospace division stated, "As electronic communications
standards evolve, the speed and volume of test data keep increasing,
which drives the requirement for test systems that can perform real-time
test at ever-higher I/O speeds. That’s why we’ve designed the Spectrum
HS around our High Speed Subsystem. It enables the entire test system to
meet demanding bus performance specifications as well as reconfigure
instruments at runtime to meet a proliferation of standardized and
custom I/O port protocols and be able to handle a massive amount of
real-time data. Tackling multiple concurrent buses at Gigabit speeds and
manipulating data at hundreds of megabytes per second are common
"Additionally, it’s the first Spectrum system centered on PXI-based
instrumentation, which is rapidly emerging as a preferred means to
address current and future analog and digital functional test
requirements," Walsh noted. "We think the Spectrum HS is the ideal
combination of a fully configurable tester designed to meet increasingly
challenging functional test requirements—all packaged in a standardized
and supportable system."
Teradyne is currently accepting orders, and multiple customers have
already purchased Spectrum HS systems. The average price in the US for a
base Spectrum HS is $160,000 and is available immediately.
(NYSE:TER) is a leading supplier of Automatic Test Equipment used to
