US NAVY SPAWAR - Case Study
WinSoft Inc. has responded to an increasing problem of aging automatic tester equipment (ATE) by successfully installing more than 25 units at SPAWAR Systems Center San Diego. The WinSoft Instrument System Emulator, WinTE 7000, presents a form, fit, and function replacement for legacy systems (i.e. CASS, Grumman) for obsolete test instruments. The 1U unit is located between the computer/ CPU and the new instrument(s). No changes to the software (TPSs) are required.
During phase I & II the following instruments have been replaced:
The replacement made use of the above technology and utilized a variety of PXI modules
Phase-I lasted for 4-5 months (including replacement of all the testers cables and RF switches), while phase II took 4 months.
SPAWAR Systems Center San Diego, Systems Support Engineering Division, calculated a saving of $2,200,000 during phase I and saving of more than $6,000,000 during phase II. This calculation is based on the DoD cost should there be a need for re-writing and re-validation of more than 100 TPSs. In addition, the down time of the station that utilizes this technology went from 50% to less than 2%.
