Teradyne to provide Marine Corps battlefield test system

Engineers at ManTech Systems Engineering Corp. of Chantilly, Va., needed a test system for the U.S. Marine Corps Third Echelon Test Set (TETS) program. They found their answer with the M910 VXI Digital Test Instrument from Teradyne Inc. in Boston.

Designed to provide portable test capabilities on the forward edge of a battlefield, the TETS system consists of two compact, ruggedized chassis that can be mounted on the back of a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle.

"The M910 was perhaps the most significant resource in our TETS architecture," says Pete Faulkner, director of engineering and TETS program manager at ManTech. "Its high-performance and size and weight met perfectly with the TETS program requirements."

The M910 is a C-size VXI instrument for advanced digital and mixed-signal test. Configurable with as many as 704 bi-directional, variable-voltage test channels in a single 13-slot C-size chassis, the M910 tests microcontroller, micro-processor, and DSP-based boards.

With a VXI plug-and-play Windows NT framework software driver and hardware that is compliant with VXI-C interface standards, the M910 is easily integrated in VXI-based test systems and specialized test equipment for large defense and avionics programs such as TETS. - J.M.
