Keithley Instruments, Inc., a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, will broadcast a free, web-based seminar titled "Tips and Techniques for Designing Cost-Effective, Efficient Switch Systems" on Tuesday, July 26, 2011. This one-hour seminar will present the basics of switching for production test applications, from types of switches to switching systems. To register for this event, visit www.keithley.com/events/semconfs/webseminars.
One of every test engineer's most important goals is keeping test systems cost-effective and efficient and switching is a major factor in ensuring this. Designing the switching system to meet the needs of the overall test system requires an in-depth understanding of the devices under test (DUTs), the number of DUTs, signal levels, required throughput, and switching hardware (switch mainframes, switch cards, etc.).
The seminar will address a variety of switching-related topics:
- Types of switches (relays, transistors, RF switch, etc.)
- Switch types (multiplexer switch, switch matrix, etc.)
- Signal types to be routed (DC, AC, RF, etc.)
- Combining multiple types of signal routing and switching in one system
- Techniques for improving switching system speed and integrity
This seminar is recommended for test engineers and system designers working in high throughput production environments who wish to gain a better understanding of high efficiency switching in test systems.
Dale Cigoy, the seminar presenter, is a lead applications engineer for Keithley Instruments, Inc. in Cleveland, Ohio, which is part of the Tektronix test and measurement portfolio. Dale joined the company in 1976 after earning a B.S. in electronic technology from Capitol College. Prior to assuming his current post, Dale developed user documentation for a variety of Keithley products.
