Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) is a machine which conducts tests and most widely used in modern electronics. It is used in electronics and electrical equipment for fault detection in printed circuit boards and is relatively simpler and faster compared to manual test methods.
It carries out tests on a device known as the Computer under Test (DUT) or Unit under Test (UUT), using automation to conduct measurements rapidly and analyse test results, preserving device quality. ATE has an important role to play in lowering production costs and helping to identify faulty parts.
