Description

Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) refers to any equipment used to perform assembly line type testing of produced items. Generally the term is applied to equipment that is used in testing integrated circuits and printed circuit boards during the manufacturing process. Automatic test equipment can range from small pc-driven dedicated fixed purpose testers to large fully programmable machines that cost millions of dollars.
