Are you maximizing the data logging capability of your commercial ATE or is valuable data being trapped on the shop floor?



DCLinks provide an off-the-shelf solution that releases trapped data in commercial ATE, so it can be used for real-time decision support.

DCLinks is a family of automated test data collection links to popular commercial Automated Test Equipment (ATE) systems (see list below).

Each DCLink is a complete solution that addresses the data logging, translation and transportation requirements to support a fully automated link to a specific ATE system.
