Course Description

A design-oriented introduction to the techniques of modern automatic test systems, covering both hardware and software. Topics include: automated testing in engineering and manufacturing; the IEEE-488 instrument bus; programmable test equipment; the device under test interface; modular software development; and human engineering and ethical considerations. The course includes a project in which students develop a complete automated test system for some real device. Student designs are implemented in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department's Automated Test System Laboratory. During the project, students maintain project schedules and conduct design reviews to critique each other's designs. Completed projects are demonstrated and thoroughly documented.
