Teledyne launch automated IoT test system

Connectivity test solutions provider Teledyne LeCroy has developed an automated test system for testing the interoperability of IoT devices.

Known as SmartTest, the automated testing suite was developed by the company’s Frontline Test Services team. According to Teledyne, the SmartTest solution can be used to test Bluetooth, 5G, Wi-Fi, USB, ZigBee, Matter and other connecting technologies.

In a press release the company said: “By incorporating artificial intelligence, machine learning and smart robotics, as well as a multitude of interfaces to the devices-under-test, Frontline Test Services' SmartTest automation system provides faster and consistent testing when compared with manual robustness and interoperability testing.”

Nick Kriczky, vice president of services at Teledyne LeCroy, said: "A person can test a Bluetooth connection by dropping and re-establishing the connection 10, 20, maybe even 30 times as part of a test routine. With SmartTest automation, we could drop and reconnect all night – perhaps thousands of times. It's a much more robust approach to testing.

“Combined with Frontline Test Services' expert-level testing and analysis, the SmartTest automation system can speed up test cycles from years to just days. In real terms, this allows IoT device manufacturers to be more effective using their testing budget, cut down on technical support and update releases and deliver the best quality product to their customers."
