Bridging the Gap Between RF Front-End Module Characterization and Production Test With the Semiconductor Test System

With the modern mobile device revolution, semiconductor suppliers are challenged to increase capability, integration, and performance while reducing time to market. Test needs a new approach based on an open, flexible platform at significantly lower cost. NI is bridging this gap by building on the stability and capability of the PXI platform to deliver off-the-shelf modular technology to both the characterization and production engineer.
