July 27th, 10.00am China time

In this practical online seminar, Steve Temme will demonstrate in-car measurement of frequency response, Max SPL, and Buzz, Squeak and Rattle using a Bluetooth connection. He will discuss considerations such as physical setup, infotainment system controls and the measurement parameters. Steve and his colleagues will then discuss connectivity for automotive testing, explaining and demonstrating the various connectivity options including USB drive, Bluetooth and A2B bus. Finally, we’ll take a look at some of the other audio measurements that you can make using SoundCheck, for example active noise cancellation and voice assistance readiness. 

在这个实用的网络研讨会中,Steve Temme 将演示如何使用蓝牙连接进行车内测量,以测量频率响应、最大 SPL 以及异常音。 他将讨论物理设置、信息娱乐系统控制和测量参数等考虑因素。 然后,Steve和他的同事将讨论汽车测试的连接性,解释和演示各种连接选项,包括 USB 驱动器、蓝牙和A2B 总线。 最后,我们将看看其他您可以透过SoundCheck进行的音频测量,例如主动降噪以及voice assistance readiness测量。

Production Testing Seminar China / 产線测试网络研讨会

loudspeaker production lineMay 18th 2022. 10am (China Time) / 2022年5月18日上午10点(中国时间)

In this short seminar, Les Quindipan explores the use of SoundCheck for end-of-line production testing. He discusses typical test configurations and the type of measurements that can be made, how to set pass/fail limits and how to optimize tests for high throughput.

He will also explain how SoundCheck is easily scaled for high volume production testing, with such features as external control via another program and auto-saving data to databases, and how SoundCheck’s capabilities are easily expanded through the use of custom steps to control all types of devices and test fixtures.

This seminar will be of interest to anyone considering a production line implementation of SoundCheck, or curious as to how to transition R&D measurements to fast and effective end-of-line test.

There is no charge for this seminar, but registration is required.

在这个简短的研讨会中,Les Quindipan将 与我们探讨如何使用 SoundCheck 进行生产线末端测试。 他会讨论典型的测试配置和可以进行的测量类型、如何设置通过/失败限制以及如何优化测试以实现高吞吐量。

他还会探讨SoundCheck 如何轻松扩展以进行大批量生产测试,具有通过另一个程序进行外部控制和自动将数据保存到数据库等功能,以及如何通过使用自定义步骤轻松扩展 SoundCheck 的功能来控制所有类型的 设备和测试夹具。

任何考虑在生产线中使用 SoundCheck 的人士,或想知道如何将研发测量转换为快速有效的生产线末端测试的人士都会对此研讨会感兴趣。

本次研讨会不收取任何费用,但需要预先登记。

Virtual Instruments Seminar

April 12th, 2022. 9.00am and 2.00pm Eastern US time (6.00am and 11.00am West Coast time)

Virtual instruments, included in SoundCheck,  are a cost-effective and portable software-based alternative to hardware instrumentation, ideal for making quick measurements or viewing device behavior in real time. In this educational seminar, Les Quindipan walks through a demonstration of the virtual instruments in SoundCheck, showing off some of their lesser-known capabilities. These include the signal generator, multimeter, oscilloscope/spectrum analyzer, real time analyzer, frequency counter and distortion analyzer. The strip chart recorder, which expands the capability of these instruments to record measurements over a period of time, will also be discussed.
