Product roadmap

Our NPD team are currently working on several exciting new projects, some of which are still classified. Here are the ones we are allowed to talk about:


More systems are making use of hybrid cables and connectors, where copper and fibre are combined in a single cable assembly. The requirement is therefore growing for a test system with both electrical and optical test capability.


Our NPD team are working on a system that truly combines the two functions in a single compact COTS test system, controlled by our MKAT test management software.

Tech lab - Combined fibre copper testing
Tech lab - New generation hardware for harness testing


We’re excited to say the next generation of test system is in development.

Drawing on nearly 30 years of ATE experience, the next gen will be more compact, offer greater testing functionality, and is modular and flexible ensuring that the system is simple to configure to suit your specific testing demands.
