These are mechanical test analogous to testing electronics through the temperature and humidity range, using shake tables as well as EMI, static and discharge tests after the usual bench tests for test waveforms and power supply variations. The area where current electronic design testing falls flat on its face is the testing of firmware and software. Reliance is given to Beta testing by prospective customers, not exactly ideal.

The manufacturer may have, but by having various products from various manufacturers be tested by the same machine under the same parameters, allows comparison of the products directly, at some level.

The manufacturer, in most cases, has done all these tests before they have, and probably came up with some more punishing tests.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
