ECET 3600 Test Engineering

Prerequisites: ECET 2210, ECET 2310


An introduction to test engineering principles with emphasis on computer-controlled instrumentation and data acquisition using industry standard bus structures such as the IEEE-488 bus and related protocol, D/A, A/D, and parallel I/O interfaces. Application software will be written in Visual Basic for testing a particular unit and interfacing various GPIB instruments. Visual Basic will be used as the overall project management software for the Unit Under Test. Design for testability and related topics will also be covered. Laboratory projects will emphasize automated testing using the principles covered in class.
