The Importance of Signal Switching for Test
Signal switching for test is often left to the last portion of the planning/design process. The problem is switching affects measurement accuracy, repeatability, and the system's useable life. Take a look at the video below for a presentation from Globalspec's Quality, Test & Measurement Conference by Bob Stasonis of Pickering Interfaces. This video discusses the switching questions to ask when designing a system in order to get the most accurate test and avoid test system damage. Diagnostics will be discussed as a method of ensuring accuracy.
