Signal switching is mechanical in most test systems, and as such, is the most likely component of a test system to fail due to normal wear and tear or damage due to the switch specs being exceeded, either accidentally during debug or while testing a faulty DUT.
When a failure occurs, production output can be adversely impacted, and getting a test system quickly back up and running becomes the main priority of the operations team. Costly and time-consuming diagnosis and repair cycles cannot be tolerated.
Fortunately, some methods can be implemented that can shave weeks off typical turn-around times, and even predict failures in advance to allow for better maintenance planning. This video will teach you how to optimize your test system's productivity while minimizing costly downtime.
