When Software Fails the Test

When Software Fails the Test Software — whether embedded in machines or running business systems — is vital to most companies, yet nearly 40% of organizations have suffered substantial financial loss as a result of poor or non-existent testing, reports InfoWorld. A survey by SQS Research found that 55% of software employed by companies was still creating problems two years after it was implemented. On the plus side, more companies, faced with the need to comply with government regulations, now see the value of automated tools for software testing. What systems has your operation implemented to ensure the quality of its software infrastructure?

One-Two Punch for Implant Inspection

One-Two Punch for Implant Inspection    A desktop robot combined with a Cognex vision system is providing economical and effective inspection of surgical screws produced by Switzerland's DePuy Spine. As decribed in Vision Systems Design, a camera is mounted on the robot's y-axis, while blister packs containing surgical screws are moved along under the camera in the x-direction. Upon detection, a faulty product triggers an alarm, and the product is removed for manual inspection.

Versatile AOI Targets Surface Mount

Versatile AOI Targets Surface Mount An automated optical inspection (AOI) platform is fully qualified for all areas of surface-mount-technology inspection, including post-reflow, pre-reflow, and 2D inspection. Developed to tackle complex and shrinking PCB board assemblies, the Medalist sj5000 can inspect the smallest 01005 components, with no compromise in speed and resolution, says Agilent. The system can handle maximum board sizes of 510 x 510 mm and maximum thickness of 4 mm.

Streamlining Metrology Workflow

Streamlining Metrology Workflow New computer-aided inspection software provides users of multi-sensor metrology systems with improved workflow, greater alignment accuracy, plus more comprehensive inspection. Combining the strengths of 3D scanners and hard probes, the program offers a single interface for inspecting every shape and feature that characterizes an object. The software automates feature creation and such tasks as calculating size, analyzing fit, and comparing 2D and 3D features.

Safeguarding the Skies

Safeguarding the Skies As embedded systems grow more complex, engineers are relying on modeling guidelines to guard against errors. To make that task easier, new Simulink Verification and Validation software automatically evaluates and verifies system models for compliance with key standards, like those governing aviation software and electronic safety systems. Also useful for automotive and industrial applications, the software features a Model Advisor that checks for other attributes, such as model consistency and code-generation compatibility.

Sharper Focus for HDTV

Sharper Focus for HDTV Electronics giant Thomson has adopted the Tektronix WFM7120 waveform monitor to achieve 3 Gb/s compliance on a new distribution amplifier for HDTV. With the 1080p display resolution standard gaining traction, its broadcaster customers had reportedly found that many existing 3 Gb/s components used in HDTV infrastructure were not compatible because of inadequate test equipment. Now the device ensures that its HDTV products are interoperable and compliant with industry standards.

Waging War on Hazardous Waste

Waging War on Hazardous Waste To ensure compliance with RoHS and other directives on harmful substances, a Quality Digest report recommends that manufacturers alter all part designs to comply with the most stringent interpretations of these regulations. D-M-E is following that tack in reengineering its entire product line. For redesigned products, new barcodes indicate compliant parts. The company also monitors suppliers closely to ensure that they, too, are meeting regulations

Wanted: A Few Good Metrologists
 

Wanted: A Few Good Metrologists Timely and reliable manufacturing of all sorts of products could suffer because of a shortage of metrology engineers. This technical specialty is responsible for ensuring the the integrity and traceability of measurements used in product development, notes Hewlett-Packard's Chris Grachanen in Test & Measurement World. To increase the field's visibility, new awareness and education campaigns have been launched by the National Conference of Standards Laboratories International and the American Society for Quality Measurement.

Diversions . . .

Bringing a New Dimension to Testing

Bringing a New Dimension to Testing A 3D measuring system called LensShape could bring faster and more cost-effective testing to complex, free-form geometries found in car headlamps and camera optics. Developed by Germany's Fraunhofer Institute and Carl Zeiss Jena GmbH, the device projects fringe patterns onto the free form with a digital projector. A CCD camera records the patterns, and a computer analyzes the fringe bending. One micron deviations can be quickly identified from reference values.
