How does software matter?
Test instrument software must be flexible enough to meet application specifications. Software used at a higher level must seamlessly integrate with assembly systems and all other software used in monitoring plant operation
There is no one-size-fits-all software for test-centric assembly. Anyone who tries to tell you differently is trying to rationalize a proprietary software design that won’t matter much and will likely cost you more—upfront or in lower yields
A short list of systems to consider includes:
NI LabVIEW, Diadem, and RTOS FPGA HMI control systems
Allen Bradley, Siemens, and OMRON PLCs
Emerson control systems
Cognex and Keyence machine vision systems
Ethernet/IP, OPC, Modbus, Profibus, TCP/IP and BSD Sockets protocols.
SQL-compliant database systems
Bottom line: There are many software options that are best-match for your test and assembly application……Contact IDC for in-depth understanding on this whole topic including extensive white papers and knowledge.
