Custom Automated Test Equipment

Summation Research, Inc (SRI) has been developing automated test equipment (ATE) for organizations since it’s inception in 1989. The company’s first major contract was for the development of module, subsystem, and system level test sets for the production verification of a multi-channel advanced technology military UHF transceiver terminal. The prime contractor for the terminal made use of SRI’s experience base with communications, cryptographic equipment, and high-speed data processing logic to produce multiple ATE systems that were rated at 99.99999% fault detection for the end product. Further capabilities provided user-friendly means for fault isolation and correction, even for low level test and/or maintenance personnel.

Subsequent ATE developments have included systems ranging from rack level to simple box level test stations. Almost all systems have been designed around standard Windows based PC’s, incorporating standard commercially available software packages to provide graphical user interfaces and report processing. The use of standard software packages allows customers to develop or maintain these elements after system delivery, if so desired. Depending on specific end-user requirements, highly reliable test sets to verify RF, analog, and/or digital circuitry can be specified, designed, developed and verified to the levels necessary to support either low or high volume production efforts in a cost effective and timely manner.
