Synopsis of Presentation

Monitoring of devices under test during immunity test is getting more and more complex and in many case is time consuming and boring. The presenter will show possibilities of automating this DUT monitoring task using electrical signals, controlling a VCR to tape the information from a camera, storing pictures on a PC, using the CAN-Bus etc. and communicating with the immunity test system to fully automate a radiated or conducted immunity test.
