The In-Phase STE Department has a two-fold mission; a) provide system interface devices to the ATE engineering group and b) design and develop specialized test equipment in accordance with the customerís application specific testing needs.
The typical ATE interface device provides power and command functions to the unit under test (UUT). It also routes various stimulus signals and simulates nominal and worse case signals under normal ATE system operation. Output signals from the UUT are routed via the STE to various commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) test instruments that are incorporated within the ATE system. Voltage, current and other return telemetry signals are conditioned and measured using internal STE circuits. Electrically isolated test points for critical test parameters are normally provided on the STE front panel.
Examples of STE developed by In-Phase from customer provided specifications include multi-port synthesizers, custom microwave filters and switch matrices, laser sources, downconverters, transceivers and various one-box mixed-signal solutions.
