Test program development and debug can be a difficult, time intensive process. Several variables must be accounted for and eliminated in the quest for a stable, repeatable, and effective test. Elements like design marginality, loadboard performance, tester accuracy, multi-site interaction, environmental noise and the like must be isolated and quantified so that the test software’s true capabilities and performance can be understood. Fundamental to the process is the collection and analysis of test data.
A good data analysis package and data collection techniques are a fundamental part of the test engineer’s tool box.
