Battery Test System (BTS) for Electric Vehicle (EV) Testing

The BTS is designed to help Tier 1 suppliers and automakers adapt to the complexity and scale of EV battery testing through enhanced customization, automation and connection of data across the entire battery test workflow to ensure performance and accelerate time to market.


DataStudio is NI’s new design-to-test analytics software that provides the foundation for modern, secure and scalable engineering data infrastructure and applications, accelerating the pace of wireless, semiconductor and electronics innovation. DataStudio Specification Compliance Manager (SCM), the first application in the DataStudio family, manages device specifications, connects to measurement data sources and automatically generates compliance reports. By laying the groundwork with comprehensive data infrastructure, engineers gain clear and actionable insights to improve productivity and reduce the manual effort required during chip development.

PXI Vector Signal Transceiver (VST) Radar Target Generation (RTG) System

The new PXI VST RTG system unlocks closed-loop, low-latency, real-time radar test capabilities, helping engineers identify and isolate issues before costly open-air range tests, increasing user confidence in radar system performance with accurately calibrated radio frequency (RF) test capability.

ActiveUptime™ Solution

ActiveUptime is NI’s maintenance-as-a-service solution for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of test equipment and test facilities. This turnkey solution is tailored to the user’s environment and provides the information needed to proactively monitor system health and prevent critical test equipment from failing. As part of the ongoing service, a dedicated technician from NI’s maintenance team will remotely monitor system health, provide support and adapt the solution based on the customer’s needs. This solution advances the user’s capabilities to proactively predict outages before they happen.

TestScale™ Software

TestScale software is NI’s new platform designed for low test coverage stations targeting a lower price point and optimized for high-volume electronics test. TestScale delivers a new option for test engineers and systems integrators, enabling them to meet test coverage, simplify development and ease sustaining for electrical functional test of PCBAs and devices.
