Testing and Evaluation

Aside from specialized electronic signal analysis and signal verifications, we can provide component and product level testing and even custom test fixtures.  We commonly make detailed reports on our findings and make recommendations for improvements.

TIMING AND SIGNAL ANALYSIS

TIMING AND SIGNAL ANALYSIS

Here we a testing and reporting on the skew variance in a mechanical quadrature encoder.

SIGNAL ANALYSIS

SIGNAL ANALYSIS

Whether audio performance, power supply noise, or filter characteristics, we can measure up!

DOCUMENTATION

DOCUMENTATION

Informative reports can include captures of dramatic measurements!

QUARTZ THERMOMETER ACCURACY

QUARTZ THERMOMETER ACCURACY

An oldie but a goodie that simply has not been out done in decades! That's 0.0001 degrees resolution! We use it for accurate thermal characterizations.

THERMAL CHARACTERIZATIONS

THERMAL CHARACTERIZATIONS

Here we are determining the thermal resistance of an enclosure to calculate worst case internal temperatures. A simple but important determination.

SEMICONDUCTOR CHARACTERIZATION

SEMICONDUCTOR CHARACTERIZATION

We prefer to verify the "actual" performance of our TVS protection devices, zener diodes, and FET/MOSFET devices!

SIGNAL ACQUISITION

SIGNAL ACQUISITION

Good signal acquisition is key to finding those fleeting or transient conditions that can cause problems. We're prepared!

MKS SYSTEM

MKS SYSTEM

Of what use is the MKS system if you don't have the K under control?

LOGIC AND TIMING

LOGIC AND TIMING

Logic analyzers, we have a collection of specialized analyzers: pattern generating, deep memory, high channel count, high state capture rates.....

HIGH ACCURACY

HIGH ACCURACY

Some instruments have performance that is truly stunning! We like to design and test with confidence!

OPTICAL TESTING

OPTICAL TESTING

Being able to communicate information at the fringes of our core services has been very useful!

GET THE BALANCE RIGHT!

GET THE BALANCE RIGHT!

Yes, that's milligrams! Who knows what technical problems we might be up against?

CIRCUIT AND TRANSDUCER STIMULUS

CIRCUIT AND TRANSDUCER STIMULUS

Sometimes simulating a signal condition can test for unusual case conditions. Arbitrary signal generators can help!

RF TOOLS

RF TOOLS

RF signal generators, spectrum analyzers, and sniffer probes help with RF situations!

COMPONENT ANALYSIS

COMPONENT ANALYSIS

Problems with a design? Maybe it's a component level problem; we'll check!

TIME CRITICAL MEASUREMENTS

TIME CRITICAL MEASUREMENTS

Understanding the variance of time critical operations, is worth the time.

VECTOR SIGNAL ANALYSIS

VECTOR SIGNAL ANALYSIS

Did you know that these signal analyzers also do sweeping characterizations of device frequency response? Great for filter and RF tunings!

FFT SIGNAL ANALYSIS

FFT SIGNAL ANALYSIS

Our signal analyzers have been used for precise audio analysis and signal quality, power supply switching noise reduction, vibration analysis, and filter and device characterizations.

CUSTOM PROGRAMMING AND TEST FIXTURES

CUSTOM PROGRAMMING AND TEST FIXTURES

We also design and fabricate programming and test fixtures for production line environments.

CUSTOM TESTER ASSEMBLY IN PROGRESS

CUSTOM TESTER ASSEMBLY IN PROGRESS

Here we are working on the final assembly of the internals of a relatively simple bed of nails programmer and tester we designed.

CUSTOM TESTER INTERNALS

CUSTOM TESTER INTERNALS

Here we are working on the internals of a high current, high voltage, test fixture.

ANOTHER CUSTOM TESTER

ANOTHER CUSTOM TESTER

The internals of a fully custom tester. We designed the test requirements, the hardware, the PCB's, and the test firmware!

SIMPLE TEST FIXTURE

SIMPLE TEST FIXTURE

Sometimes the test fixture requirements are very basic. We can accommodate small to medium test fixture designs.

MICROSCOPES FOR PRECISION MEASUREMENTS

MICROSCOPES FOR PRECISION MEASUREMENTS

Microscopic measurements and analysis are no longer an option for an electronics lab.
