The automatic test system consist of a sine wave generator controlled by IEEE 488 bus, a PC with a tested plug-in board and a software package, which ensures a control of the generator and of the tested plug-in board, and a processing of measured data. The high quality generator have to be used for this method (spectral purity -80dB for 12 bit AD boards). The generator which is build in the Lock-in amplifier SR 830 DSP, satisfies this parameters and was used for this purpose in the designed system.
The software package was created in LabWindows/CVI environment as an application under MS Windows. It consists of two parts, the first for a data acquisition and the second for a data processing and a results presentation. This solution makes it possible to use the part of the data processing and the results presentation also for a previously measured data, which were stored in a file.
The results are presented in a table or in a graphical form. They can be also stored in a file for a future statistical processing or publishing. The program is easy controlled using a button menu.
