Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in connectivity test solutions, is pleased to announce that their Frontline Test Services team has developed SmartTest automated testing to enhance their testing capabilities. SmartTest automated testing enables the most rigorous and repeatable testing possible while reducing test times and customer costs.
While estimates vary, most experts agree that the number of interconnected IoT devices is growing exponentially each year. To ensure these devices can connect seamlessly and work together, design and test engineers across markets from automotive to healthcare, and from consumer electronics to enterprise devices, need to perform thorough robustness and interoperability testing. This type of testing can improve product reliability, stability, data integrity, and security. Many IoT device manufacturers do not have these testing capabilities, and some find outsourced testing services cost prohibitive. Frontline Test Services has been one of the best sources for interoperability testing, consulting, and training services for Bluetooth, 5G, Wi-Fi, USB, ZigBee, Matter, and other connecting technologies. Now, with the adoption of SmartTest automated testing, testing is better and more affordable.
By incorporating artificial intelligence, machine learning, and smart robotics, as well as a multitude of interfaces to the devices-under-test, Frontline Test Services’ SmartTest automation system provides faster and more consistent testing when compared with manual robustness and interoperability testing. Nick Kriczky, Vice President of Services at Teledyne LeCroy commented, “A person can test a Bluetooth connection by dropping and re-establishing the connection 10, 20, maybe even 30 times as part of a test routine. With SmartTest automation, we could drop and reconnect all night – perhaps thousands of times. It’s a much more robust approach to testing. Combined with Frontline Test Services’ expert-level testing and analysis, the SmartTest automation system can speed up test cycles from years to just days. In real terms, this allows IoT device manufacturers to be more effective using their testing budget, cut down on technical support and update releases, and deliver the best quality product to their customers.” The repeatable and rigorous testing available from Frontline Test Services allows engineers to uncover critical and hard-to-find issues within their IoT device designs and implementations. Using SmartTest testing ensures quicker and more efficient test cycles, lowers manufacturing and development costs, reduces time to market, and helps improve customer satisfaction with tested products.
Frontline Test Services offers consultancy and interoperability services to help in all stages of the product lifecycle, from specification to market launch and beyond. Our global dedicated test labs for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB, and phone projection technologies (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) help to minimize field issues, lower development costs, and speed time to market with products that you can feel confident will deliver a superior user experience.
