Automotive Electrical Testing
Automotive electrical testing involves any testing in which the DUT (Device Under Test) has power applied to it to verify functionality and/or performance under the test conditions. While there are a number of different test types, some of the more commonly requested electrical tests include:
- Button/Switch/Power cycling
- High/Low voltage
- High/Low current
- Environmental stressors such as temperature and humidity extremes
- Constant operation
These tests are conducted to evaluate how a product and its electronic components perform over the life of a product, to understand weak or failure modes, and to establish electrical performance benchmarking. Some of the most commonly used and referenced electrical testing standards include:
- Automotive: FMVSS 108
- Medical: 60601-1
- Custom testing programs based upon our clients informational goals
