Teradyne - Spectrum-9100 – Functional Test Platform

Teradyne - Spectrum-9100 – Functional Test Platform

Product Overview:

The Spectrum-9100 functional test platform is designed to meet the testing demands of today’s sophisticated defense and aerospace electronics. The system is optimized to support a range of products from legacy products designed in the 1970's through the latest state-of-the-art products with GHz real-time processing requirements. Configured with Teradyne's state-of-the-art VXI and PXI instrumentation, along with carefully selected third-party instrumentation, the Spectrum-9100 offers the best proven solution for testing high-mix products.

The Spectrum-9100 is unique to its counterparts, the Spectrum HS and Spectrum FX, in that it is engineered for testing products with vastly different technology and legacy components.
