In this week's SBIR training video, we take a break from the theory behind specific infrared tests and turn our focus towards our latest version of our automated electro-optical test equipment software tool - IRWindows4™.
This is an overall view of IRWindows4™ meant to introduce the three different views within the software. These three views define the skill level of the user and we have broken it down into Operator View, Developer View and Programmer View.
The most basic of the three is Operator View. The user is presented with a straightforward setup meant to provide lab technicians with a series of visual and written instructions that they can follow to pass or fail a device under test and allow them to generate a printable and/or soft copy report of the required quality test data.
The second view is what we refer to as the Developer View. This is the person who would set up the sequence of instructions and required tests for the "operator view" technician to follow. We have broken the tests into three primary categories "Infrared", "Visible" and "Laser". Based on these predefined test algorithms, the developer can select whichever tests they want the operator to run and set up the specific details of the sensor within those individual test configurations and sequences. They can also configure the test report generator a myriad of ways for their specific quality needs.
The last view is Programmer's View. This view looks exactly the same as the Developer's View but it allows a person with C# language skills to go in and actually create a duplicate copy of one of SBIR's predefined tests and alter the code as they require for their organization. This is a great tool for our customers who have different equations they wish to follow for specific tests (i.e; Modulation Transfer Function or NETD algorithms). Note: the original test code stays locked so that user's always have a clean backup to reference.
As always, feedback and comments are appreciated. Thanks for watching and enjoy!
