Introduction
PXI Maestro extends the PXI 3000 Series RF modular platform to provide a production-ready test system with integrated device under test control and the ability to test multiple devices in parallel.
PXI Maestro provides the ideal solution to accelerate test system development, reduce test time and lower the cost of test.
 
Reducing the Cost of Test
The cost of test is both a capital expense dominated by RF test equipment selection and an operating expense dominated by test system engineering overhead. Using PXI Maestro with PXI 3000 RF modular instruments reduces both.
Compared to conventional solutions, the capital costs using PXI Maestro are lowered by as much as 75%. This is achieved by reducing both the cost per tester and the number of testers required for a given manufacturing throughput.
Operating expenses are dramatically reduced because PXI Maestro is production ready, requiring very little integration effort irrespective of whether it is incorporated within an existing production line or new installations.
 
Reducing Integration Complexity
Production test system engineers face a constant challenge posed by the ever increasing complexity of wireless mobile devices.
Developing, adapting and optimizing RF test systems can be time consuming and requires highly skilled staff with detailed knowledge of their test tools. PXI Maestro lowers test engineering complexity. It provides an optimized ATE solution out of the box, ready for testing multi-com devices. It simplifies the process of test system integration to accelerate new product introduction and help save cost.
PXI Maestro provides the user with a simple graphical user interface to select, generate and execute or edit test plans. While the test plan is running, all tester and device control commands are executed as an uninterrupted measurement sequence with no further user input. Measurement results are displayed as they are executed with a final test report available in a user friendly format. Facilities exist to integrate SMU control at specific points within the measurement sequence. The effort to develop and maintain test system code is radically reduced leading to much faster new product introduction cycles.
