Quartus understands the critical role that testing plays in different stages of product development. In Quartus’ 20 years of providing analysis, design and manufacturing support, testing has played a key role in the meeting customers expectations; the role that testing plays depends on the project and the needs of the customer. Quartus can work independently or with customers to develop test plans, test setups, test fixtures, and perform the required testing.
VALIDATION OF INDUSTRY LEADING ANALYSIS
Quartus’ roots are in complex precision mechanical analysis. Accurate analysis allows for predictive assessments of system performance during various events or in multiple environments and is used to optimize designs without having to perform extensive testing that is costly in both time and schedule. In order to use and rely on these analysis tools, it is paramount that appropriate testing be performed to build sufficient confidence in the finite element models. These models can then be used to extrapolate design performance into operational regimes that are difficult or impossible to test and measure. Quartus has extensive experience performing validation testing and correlating this information with the analytical models developed.
In the development of a complete systems or a subsystem, Quartus works to design a system that will meet the requirements set forward and/or approved by the customer. Part of meeting requirements is establishing the right method for the verification for each requirement. Throughout the design process Quartus works to ensure that all requirements are verifiable. In many cases, performance based requirements are verified by test. Quartus can perform the testing needed to verify the requirements set forth; whether these are performance over thermal or vibration environments, optical system performance verification, lifetime testing, or other verification testing.
