In the year 2020, 90% of the cars are connected, and in 2030, 30% will be electric vehicles. With these technological improvement in e-mobility, autonomous driving and connectivity, the test becomes an exciting challenge and at the same time essential. 6TL is supported by modular and scalable technology to offer reliability and stability in electronic production.
Aerospace & Defense
The aerospace industry and the defense market are the highest levels of demand. The teams of engineers working for these markets, which adjust to the advanced needs and technologies. FastATE 6TL technology helps these teams to solve their challenges and ensure the testing of their products, with very high quality levels.
The Sistel group has always been, from its origins, in direct contact with the contribution of solutions for the industry, so that 6TL, expert in solutions for testing industrial products, is nourished by extensive experience and knowledge of these markets. Our solutions for testing range from products for control of motors or inverters for solar energy, to energy measurement, communication buses or all kinds of sensors.
The industrial sector for medical products is heterogeneous, innovative and dynamic, as well as very specific in terms of extreme regulation. Traceability is a key aspect in this high growth sector, where 6TL modular solutions, combining hardware and software, will make the difference for your production test systems.
Internet of things
Internet of Things (IoT) will affect all industries and the lives of all of us. We find it in applications such as housing and smart buildings, connected vehicles, “wereables”, smart cities, public transport and many others. What these applications have in common is that they use the information to optimize all kinds of processes, save money, energy and even save lives. The test is a key aspect in the manufacture of IoT devices and involves overcoming important technological challenges such as the testing of different types of RF, NFC, Bluetooth, RFID, and low consumption measurements, etc.
The technologies that are applied to consumer electronics advance very fast: Higher frequencies, more bandwidth, better audio, better video … 6TL systems and products for the production test of consumer electronics, guarantee you be able to test the new features of your devices with maximum efficiency.
What is fastATE?
fastATE is a technology for integrating ATE’s based on using intelligent modules (modularity) to come up with the turn-key solution.
Each module is covering a needed function of the ATE, and shares information to the rest of modules thanks to field bus. An ATE using this technology uses minimum wiring in its architecture, since the intelligence is not concentrated into a unique controller that must receive all I/O, but on each of the modules.
Keep it simple
Today’s test engineers need to focus on product testability and test processes; they are managing several projects in parallel, most likely on a tight schedule. But above all, to determine the best ATE architecture, they must consider its hidden maintenance costs, the true modularity of the system, and its long-term maintainablity.
With 6TL’s fastATE® technology, test engineers do not have to address the recurrent tasks of every project since a 6TL module already completes most of these tasks for them. This module is a high-level block that covers one needed recurrent function of the ATE.
Test engineers used to manage the instrumentation, will now manage the parts to build up the ATE in the same way. All the knowledge about automation, securities and standards, is already fulfilled by a 6TL module.
