Automated Test Equipment Market

Market Overview

Automated test equipment is an automated machinery that performs tests and evaluates the functionality, quality, performance, and safety of those who use electronic devices and systems. The devices that would be assessed will be referred to as devices under test (DUT), units under test (UUT), and equipment under test (EUT). ATE tests devices such as semic conductor wafers, integrated circuits (ICs), printed circuit boards (PCBs), and hard disk drives (HDDs). Automated test equipment is used for testing in various industries, including wide applications in the testing of electronic components and systems in the electronic manufacturing industry. Further, in the automotive sector, it is used to test electronic modules in automobiles, and in industrial automation, It tests whether the parameters are set as per requirement. Even defense applications like radar and wireless communication are tested. It is also used in aerospace and many other industries for testing fabricated systems.

Recent developments in the automated test equipment industry:

  • In 2023, Astronics Corporation bagged an IDIQ contract to support U.S marine Corps handheld radio test set program. The company will provide portable radio test capability for communicating systems that are designed to handle remote positions.
