Why this webcast is important:
Manually testing DUTs have been common place on engineering benches for decades. During the design phase of your development, its often more practical to manually test your design rather than spend the effort to automate tests. You know that automating tests provide more test coverage, are easier to scale, and are more repeatable. However, the trade-off of automated tests is that it takes time to develop them. Not only do you need knowledge of your chosen programming language, but also the instrument’s programming conventions to control your test instrument via your PC.  In the past, this has consumed days to months of development time in order to automate even the most simple of tests.  With newer software programs, you can not only develop automated tests in minutes but also run and quickly visualize the results. Learn how modern software tools can help you develop automated sequences as simply as using the front panel of your instruments.

Who should attend:
Engineers who would like to more easily set up, control, automate, and get results from their bench test instruments.
