VI Technology's Multimedia Test System Wins Prestigious Best in Test Award from Test and Measurement World

Readers of Test and Measurement World, the leading magazine for engineers in electronic test and measurement, have selected VI Technology's Multimedia Test System (MMTS(tm)) as the winner of the prestigious Best in Test Award for the "Audio/Video and Multimedia" category.

AUSTIN, Texas and Wichita, KS—April 14, 2009— Readers of Test and Measurement World, the leading magazine for engineers in electronic test and measurement, have selected VI Technology’s Multimedia Test System (MMTS™) as the winner of the prestigious Best in Test Award for the “Audio/Video and Multimedia” category.

The MMTS is based on the latest in test and measurement hardware and software, providing engineers responsible for functional-circuit and end-of-line testing with a scalable, configuration-based, highly customizable system. The MMTS includes all the necessary hardware, software, and extensions for testing analog video, digital video, analog audio, and digital audio (S/PDIF). With this system, test engineers configure the sequences that are available out of the box and define test parameters within which their device should perform without a need for programming.

The MMTS efficiently shares available resources to test up to four multimedia devices in parallel, maximizing the testing throughput without sacrificing the quality or the speed of the measurements and yielding overall increases in test performance by up to 30X. No other system on the market today offers the combination of a full-featured set of measurements, minimal configuration time, low price, and minimal footprint. The system also features the necessary interfaces to connect with corporate software, including ERP, MES, and Enterprise Test Software (ETS) such as VI Technology’s Arendar®.

Mark Pearson, Engineering Project Manager for Sanmina-SCI’s New Technologies and Ventures Division said, “The test times and throughput over existing platforms are impressive. Sanmina-SCI has been very pleased with VI’s commitment, attention to detail, schedule, and overall professionalism.”

This award is a testament to VI Technology’s focus and dedication to providing technologically superior products and solutions to test and measurement needs, from design to manufacturing.
