Products, Solutions, and Case Studies



Automated Mixed-Signal ASIC Test System

Ball Systems Technologies developed a fully automated test system based on NI PXI components for mixed-signal ASIC testing. Test system is designed to accommodate characterization and validation test requirements of mixed-signal ASICs.


Handheld Proprietary Mil-Aero Communications Bus Analyzer

Ball Systems Technologies developed a small custom handheld, battery powered, test platform based on the National Instruments single-board RIO platform, adding additional circuitry and packaging. Ultimately developing a tool that fully evaluates communications bus health, performance, layout, power, and bandwidth utilization and providing a consistent and reliable problem diagnosis.


BALLTEST Software Test Executive

Ball Systems Technologies developed BallTest™ as a stand-alone test executable for use in automated test environments. It features XML-based test sequences, an “instrument-defined architecture”, an automatic mode for running customer-defined test sequences and a manual mode for independently actuating or monitoring system I/O. BallTest™ also provides the customer with graphical user interfaces for editing test sequences and interfacing with instruments. Ease of configuration and setup was a primary goal.


Manufacturing End-Of-Line Gear-Motor Performance Tester

Ball Systems Technologies developed a manufacturing end-of-line gear motor performance tester.



Case Studies

Designing and Building Durability Test Stations for New P0 HEV Motor Generator Devices Using NI LabVIEW and LabVIEW Real-Time

Ball Systems designed, built, and validated six independent and universal belt-driven dynamometer-based durability test stations for motor generators utilizing Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) subsystems, custom mechanical fixturing, industrial mechatronics/electronics, and network-based, open architecture National Instruments LabVIEW and LabVIEW Real-Time software.


Creating a Custom, Open-Architecture Alternator Tester Using NI LabVIEW and TestStand

Ball Systems Technologies created a scalable, custom designed, built, and validated alternator end-of-line manufacturing tester using National Instruments LabVIEW and TestStand software and Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) components.


DSL Modem/Router Multi-DUT Test System

Ball Systems Technologies developed a test station capable of simultaneously asynchronously testing up to eight DSL modem/routers – testing full port functionality (WAN, Ethernet, DSL, HPNA, WiFi) and ensuring no visual defects and proper LED illumination. The system utilized interconnected PCs and the BallTest™ software platform using NI’s LabVIEW with XML scripted test sequences and an SQL database.


Automation of Industrial Compressor Performance Testing

Ball Systems Technologies developed and delivered customized data acquisition carts based on NI's cRIO architecture and LabVIEW software to automate testing of industrial compressor performance.
