What’s new at Autotestcon 2013

Autotestcon is an annual conference focused on testing of mil/aero systems.  This year it was held outside of Chicago in Schaumburg, Illinois.  However, like last year, many expected attendees from the Department of Defense and armed services were no-shows.  In the era of budget cuts and sequestration, traveling to conferences is strictly monitored, leaving the show without its major patrons.  Too bad for them, for they missed many of the new products unveiled at the show.  Luckily for you, I will report on them.

The report is in two parts.  In the first day of reporting I will cover vendors who have a significant VXI or AXIe offering, even if in addition to their PXI offering. Those vendors are Agilent, Elma, Hiller Measurements, Guzik, Bustec, VTI Instruments, Teradyne, and EADS.

The second day I focus on vendors who have PXI as their primary platform.  This includes National Instruments, Radx Technologies, Pickering, Marvin Test Solutions, Aeroflex, OpenATE, Adlink, and Chroma ATE.  Though not PXI, I also included new products from United Electronics Industries (UEI), and Eastern Optx.  I also do a synopsis of my presentation at the Modular Outlook panel discussion.
