End-of-line (EoL) testers are responsible for testing the overall functionality of the product during the manufacturing process. Under the harsh conditions of the manufacturing environment, test systems must simulate all the relevant conditions, whilst at the same measuring the responses of the equipment being tested.
In series production, a high testing throughput rate is crucial. For this reason, the test procedures developed in prototype testing are optimised in order to achieve a short cycle time.
A stable electromechanical design is every bit as important here as high-performance hardware and software architecture.
