Welcome to the
Roos Instruments Inc.
RF ATE System
Basic Training Seminar
The objective of this seminar is to provide Operators, Maintainers, and Test Engineers, the information needed to operate the RI7100C "CASSINI" Automated Test Equipment (ATE) in a production environment, handle daily troubleshooting tasks, perform routine system maintenance, calibrate Test Fixtures and Device Interfaces, design efficient Test Programs, debug Test Program operation, and perform correlation to the RI RF/Microwave ATE System.
Each Chapter is arranged to progress through the topic, but the in class presentation will jump around, introducing elements from different chapters as they make the most sense to a developer working with the test system.
The manual is available online at http://roos.com/manuals (user account required for access)
RI7100C "Cassini" Basic Training Chapters
- Cassini ATE Systems and Operation and Troubleshooting

- RI System Administration and Maintenance
This chapter leads you though administration of the ATE system, Production Test Execs, and covers routine system maintenance and verification.
- Basic Test Plan Concepts
Topics include the creation and execution of a basic RF Test Plan and the displaying of the test results.
- Science of RF Measurement
This chapter reviews the fundamental math and science needed to understand RF measurements and explains the performance characteristics of RI ATE.
- Device Definitions
Covers the Protocol Aware "Device Control Editor" and Integrated "Device Connections Editor" applications used to customize the test system and related software objects to the device to be tested.
- Example Applications Development
Use all your new knowledge to develop a complete application for specific example devices including a Test Fixture, Device Interface, Test Plan and Production Test Exec.
- Test Fixture and Device Interface Definitions and Calibration
The topics covered include Test Fixture and Device Interface ( DUT board ) design, definition and calibration with discussions of calibration methods and several of the standard example Test Plans.
- Test Plan Design and Best Practice of Test Plan Optimization
In this section, the entire test plan development process is reviewed with an emphasis on best practices of Test Plan design and optimization techniques.
