TechNote: Production Test with APx Audio Analyzers

June 29, 2020
This 12-page technical note discusses manufacturing (or production-line) test of audio and acoustic devices.

Audio Precision’s TechNote 129 examines the automated test capabilities built into APx500 measurement software, with emphasis on capabilities specifically intended to support production-line test applications.

A practical example—the manufacturing test of loudspeakers—is reviewed, including discussion of “golden units” (reference devices), input equalization, multiple sequences in a single project, and Production Test mode.

Readers interested in audio manufacturing test should make sure to check out the APx500 Flex audio analyzer.
