Mechanical Relay Test System

Mechanical Relay Test

Intel Corporation, Summer 2014

For my summer internship I was tasked with finding and fixing the issues that Intel was having with their mechanical relays that they used in their test boards.  After Identifying different failure modes, I worked with the in-house fabrication team to design hardware that could test the relays without removing them from the board.

I simultaneously wrote a program using c# that would control the hardware to run the test, take data from the relays, and output a definitive answer as to whether the relay was functioning or not.
