Test and Stimulus

NOW develops equipment for production testing of electrical and physical properties of products as well as inspection systems using machine vision. We have also developed stimuli equipments that generates signals to electronic products for verification of function and reliability.

Test equipment usually consists of a mechanical fixture, test electronics, data collection devices and software. The equipment is often designed to be fully automatic or used with a minimum of interaction. Depending on the tested product’s complexity, different help functions can be built into the system, and thus simplifies trouble-shooting and repair. Test results are often stored in database.

Stimuli equipment usually simulates a product’s properties to ensure function in other parts of a system. The settings may in most cases be controlled by software to simplify the use of the system.

NOW uses both self-developed system components and standard components from leading manufacturers. For the development of the software we use for example LabView™, Java, Xcaliper™, Visual Basic™, Visual C++™ or C.
