The T&M Discussion
T&M is a fundamental necessity for the evaluation of perfrormance in the production of Electronic and Electrical Products.
T&M is also fundamental in the Development of Electronic and Electrical Products.
This is true even if it is just a simple Digital Voltmeter that is used to measure inputs and outputs of simple R&D system.
The Building Blocks for T&M usually consist of several parts >
A Computer, Some Test Software, a Comms Link to the Instruments, Serial, USB, Ethernet or GPIB ( even Wireless) and the T& M Instruments or Instruments as a Test Suite and finally the interconnects ( Probes, Shunts, Clamps, Cables etc ) to the Device Under Test DUT or UUT.
The Test Engineer
A Test Engineer has to be very versatile and knowledgeable > understanding Computer Test Programming, Instruments Languages, Test Instruments Specifications, Possible Errors and the necessary methods and procedures to test the product meaningfully.
A very big job and development is time consuming and often one step forward two steps back until finally the Software is driving the Instruments correctly and the results are coming out meaningfully. Well done, you will only do it a few dozen times in a lifetime but each time you become more proficient and it slowly gets easier.
So to our companies that provide the Test Instruments. we are not going to look at all of them in detail but will high Lite in the Logo and Picts each of their strengths.

MasTec has a complete range of Instruments from simple Analog and Digital panel Meters to Handheld and Bench instrments.
The most popular is the GW Instek portable scope which also is a very good meter.
Traditional Bench-Top and Rack Instruments.
Inside these Vendors pages you may find exactly what you require -
Array, Atten, GW Instek, ICS, Protek, Anshuman Tech etc all make a wide range of instruments.
Linking these types of instrument to a PC to build test sets is easy now days. Inside software like LabVIEW and Measurement Studio are excellent driver sets to make the connection to a PC via GPIB, RS-232, Ethernet and USB,
Using a PC to build instruments may suite some situations. Inside software like LabVIEW and Measurement Studio are excellent examples of how to build virtual instruments.
Also you can build composite instrument this way in software to make a complex test instrument that resides inside and outside your PC which will store the test results and will also allow sophosicated analysis and much more,
Most ATE & T&M systems in NZ now are being built with PC, USB, Ethenet, cPCI, PCIe or PXI Instruments.
These instruments are fully featured Scopes, Arbs, Function Generators, DMMs, Logic Capture, Logic Generators etc.
