Teradyne-Defense Aerospace-SpectrumHS Test System

The Spectrum HS functional test platform is designed to meet current and future defense and aerospace test demands. The Spectrum HS employs an open architecture that allows Teradyne engineers to quickly produce tailored configurations to meet customer-specific requirements. With a suite of modular building blocks for the system’s infrastructure, the Spectrum HS can be sized to meet today’s needs, while ensuring that flexibility exists to scale the system to handle future test requirements.

The Spectrum HS is Teradyne’s most advanced functional test system. It differs from the Spectrum-9100 and Spectrum FX in that it is engineered for the latest real-time low latency busses. It also features more recent technology and a newer design.
