Abstract

The purpose of this project was to develop an automated test system for laser control circuit board assemblies. By providing a system with which IPG Photonics can test their laser control boards, other related Fiber Optic Amplifier hardware will be shielded from destructive board failures. We built a custom software and hardware package to measure various parameters of the laser control boards verifying correct modular operation. The scalable LabVIEW-based on solution was designed to include a user defined pass-fail criteria and a board failure analysis tool. Analysis of verification tests prove that the test system is reliable.
