Periodically ensuring that Automated Test Equipment (ATE) is functioning properly is a critical part of product manufacturing, and is often required in regulated industries. Properly verified ATE helps to maintain consistent test results and reduces downtime. Automated self-test is ideal for periodic verification of test system performance, and can be used to get a system back online faster after system changes or failures. In this session, Bloomy’s ATE Product Manager will discuss three of the most common methods of self-testing your ATE, including System Self-Test ITA’s (Interchangeable Test Adapters, or fixtures), Loopback Units Under Test (UUTs), and Golden Sample UUTs. By understanding test coverage, advantages, disadvantages, and best practices for each method you can decide which "test the tester" method is best for your application.
