National Instruments’ Automated Test Summit 2014 – UK date announced

May 08, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
National Instruments UK & Ireland will host industry experts and test professionals at the Automated Test Summit 2014 on 19th June at the Madejski Stadium, Reading, UK. This free, one day event will allow delegates to learn about the top trends and technologies influencing automated test through informative presentations, technical discussions and ten hours of hands-on training.

In his keynote address, Brendan Davis, leading industry expert and author of “The Economics of Automatic Testing”, will share his overview on the use of economic analysis to determine the optimum test strategy for electronics design, manufacturing and support. As the speed of bringing cost-effective, high-technology and high-quality products to market is of key importance in today’s competitive environment, Davis will highlight how to effectively use automatic test equipment to minimise costs, maximise productivity and improve quality.

Delegates have a choice of five dedicated tracks that are tailored to meet the needs of a test professional. One presentation track entirely focussed on RF will explore topics such as envelope tracking, testing RADAR systems and overcoming WLAN test challenges up to 160 MHz bandwidth. Meanwhile, the Automated Test track gives delegates the opportunity to discover what’s new in NI TestStand 2013 and learn top development tips and tricks for this software. In addition, topics covered in ten hours of hands-on training include acquiring wireless measurements with PXI, maximising measurement speed with FPGA-based hardware, and prototyping a software-defined radio system.
