Sanmina-SCI, one of the world's leading contract manufacturers, selected PXI modular instruments and test management software from National Instruments to develop an FDA-approved production tester for testing and calibrating medical devices that measure blood glucose levels. "The NI test platform delivered the accuracy and flexibility we needed to quickly build a compact test system that exceeds our throughput requirements of testing 83,000 devices per week while maintaining a cycle time of 30 seconds per device, and exceeds our yield requirements with production yields greater than 95 percent," said Mike Oehrlein, Sanmina-SCI senior staff engineer. The PXI-based system tests a medical device that measures blood glucose levels by performing measurements of the current and impedance characteristics produced from an electrochemical reaction.
