Automated Production Testing
MegiQ provides an Application Programming Interface (API) for controlling the VNA application and measurements.This API is used for developing custom automated measurements in a factory.
The API can use preconfigured measurements and calibrations. It can perform measurements and process the resulting data, comparing it against a template or store the results for logging production data. There is a complete arithmetic set of functions that operate on whole datasets at the time.
Parametric sweep data is fully supported as a hiarchial dataset.
The API uses the COM-model and can be used under most popular programming languages such as C#, C++, LabWindows/CVI, VB and VBA for MS-Office. There are example programs in several languages to get quickly up to speed.
The graph here is part of a (simple) VBA template program in Excel.
