Automatic Test Equipment for S-Band Central Unit (ATE for SBCU)

Automatic Test Equipment for S-Band Central Unit (ATE for SBCU) is a platform to validate the integrated system functionality (RF and digital), execute unit level test cases and support incremental system integration and testing. Primary goal of the ATE for SBCU is to support and provide a platform to execute all the test cases listed for acceptance testing and qualification testing.

There are pre-defined test cases with input and expected-output arguments that are tested for with the help of this ATE. The ATE executes the test cases with the help of test scripts and generates the reports in the expected format.

The S-Band Central Unit has a hybrid backplane which supports RF as well as high speed digital signals. The external world signals which interface with Shop Replaceable Unit (SRU)/ cards terminate on backplane connector.
