NI enters the enclosure business
One of the announcements of the Tuesday keynote was that NI would be deploying test systems via something called ATE core configurations. This basically means all the gear in a 19-in. test rack – including the mechanical items such as the enclosure – can be specified on a single purchase order to NI. The idea is to simplify the ATE purchase process. Effectively, this move puts NI in the business of supplying enclosures, UPS, EPO gear, and the other ancillary test rack equipment that would ordinarily come from other suppliers.
