Abstract
The objectives of this project are to establish ballot ready specifications for the Standard Automatic Test System (SATS) Hardware Interface for Instrument, Power Supply, Switch Matrix, Receiver, Fixture, Pin Map, Cabling, and Secondary Connector Packaging. These interfaces will be based upon an industry developed, openly supported, commercially available architecture. Criticality of the project is driven by the need to: (a) align with COTS-Commercial Off The Shelf products, that are designed to existing commercial standards, ie IEEE, Eurocard, VXI, VME (b) reduce costs by exploiting commercial investment, limited non-recurring integration development, and competitive pressures; (c) improve availability and interoperability through common architectures and multi-vendor product offerings; (d) improve test program set transportability; (e) increase ATS supportability through standard acceptance, available technical/spares third-party support tools and resources; and (f) assure longer product life by structuring the architecture for future commercial subelement pre-planned product improvements and ATS technical insertion.
