Keywords:digital calibration  automated test  calibration FAQ 

Test and adjustment is used everywhere to assure IC quality. Electronics can speed test and make adjustment easy.

The above statements tell a story in quite simple terms. Calibration makes products accurate, safe and affordable. It allows manufacturers to deliver optimal devices at competitive prices. Maxim's large variety of digital calibration parts enables quick automated test and adjustment.

Electronic calibration can reduce cost in many areas. Calibration offers manufacturing, and the parent company, several distinct advantages. It helps ensure that parts meet manufacturing tolerances. A company can thus specify less-expensive components, reduce test time, improve reliability and lower warranty costs. With all this comes increased customer satisfaction, fewer customer returns, and faster product delivery.

Digitally controlled calibration devices and potentiometers (pots, DPots and CDPots) are replacing mechanical pots in many products. The advantages are reduced test time and expense because human error is removed. Digital calibration devices are insensitive to vibration, dust, dirt and moisture, which can cause failure in mechanical pots. This increased reliability can reduce product liability concerns and improve product safety. In addition, the small size of electronic calibration devices benefits small board layouts and portable devices.
