ATE and mass interconnect systems on display!

At the Embedded Design Show (22/23 Oct 2014 Coventry GB), the Peak Group is featuring its latest developments in automated test systems as well as test solutions using mass interconnect products from Virginia Panel Corporation (VPC).

Peak is a proven provider of automated test and measurement solutions, supporting every stage of the assembly process from component testing to highly complex functional solutions. The company has over 25 years' experience of providing innovative test solutions in the military, aerospace, rail, automotive, power generation and industrial electronics markets.

Peak offers intelligent integration of COTS (commercial "off-the-shelf") equipment with custom-designed mechanical, electronic and system software elements. Comprehensive installation and commissioning procedures are deployed to merge Peak's test systems with customers' processes, followed up with hands-on training and the provision of detailed documentation.

New at the event is a range of VTAC high-speed data (HSD) connectors for the VPC mass interconnect systems. Designed for use in high-speed testing, the new connectors offer data transfer rates of over 10 Gbit/s per differential pair. Rapid data transfer is ensured when the connectors are installed in VPC's 90 Series Module, which can support up to 34 VTAC HSD connectors with two differential pairs or four single-ended connections.

The HSD contacts are gold-plated for signal integrity and maximum reliability and are compatible with several industry standard connectors including USB 3.0, Serial ATA, HDMI, DVI & DVI-1, RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet, QSFP and Infiniband.

The Peak Group is also featuring its recently announced partnership with Simplicity AI to provide integrated test solutions based on National Instruments industry-standard platforms along with Peak's test hardware and fixturing technology and Simplicity AI's advanced test & measurement software.

Simplicity AI, based in Farnborough, Hants., provides a range of advanced technical products and engineering services for test, measurement, control and automation, with a particular emphasis on developing automatic test and measurement software built around industry-standard platforms. The company's Tequra software suite aims to reduce the cost and risk involved with test software development, deployment and maintenance. The software also provides detailed insight into manufacturing processes and product quality.
