VXI-Based Test Station Reduces Development Cost and Cycle Time

In an increasingly competitive defense electronics market, lean production initiatives are paramount to remaining competitive. And, the limited defense budget has forced the aerospace/defense industry to drive process improvements well beyond the low hanging fruit.

The need for faster cycle time has created a huge challenge for test-development organizations to deliver production-ready equipment for first-article testing. And commercial manufacturers face the same challenges.

The design of automatic production test equipment represents a significant portion of the non-recurring cost of developing state-of-the-art production lines, especially when each system is one-of-a kind and custom-built. In addition, the recurring support cost of a large number of unique systems throughout numerous production and depot facilities is cost-prohibitive.

This article describes a system called the Hellfire II Common Core Test Station which is being used for defense electronics applications.
