LabVIEW test executive software

iVVivi, is an out of the box architecture and Test Executive development tool for serious LabVIEW developers building Test Systems for a living

It provides a standard way of architecting your LabVIEW test application, where the bulk of the architecture is already written for you. You just need to complete the measurement code, either from IVI compliant Instrument drivers, DAQmx calls, or any of the standard NI driver sets. For Test system developers, you have all the benefits of built in functions such as log-in options, configuration of Instruments, a “drag and drop” sequence editor and built in XML report generation with style sheet selection.


  • Fully LabVIEW based
  • Out of the box test executive
  • Built in log in functions
  • Reusable LabVIEW test modules
  • Version for use with NI TestStand
  • Drag & drop sequence editor
  • Easy instrument configuration including IVI compliant instruments
  • Ramp wizard for easy configuration of multiple measurements
  • Report generation built in
  • Test data logging to IntraStage


  • Test system control
  • Test system software development
  • Medical device test systems
  • Aerospace & defence test systems
  • Automotive test systems
  • Consumer electronics test systems

RF Record and Playback solutions

The digital RF Spectrum has become a major business expense and a huge asset to a variety of military, telco, satellite, WiFi/broadband, consumer electronic, auto and general aviation companies. Limited availability or, “Spectrum Crunch”, means this asset needs to be consistently monitored and protected.

In this new reality, company presidents, CIOs, CFOs, accountants, design and validation engineers and even politicians need real-time access to, and analysis of, the digital spectrum.

Spectrum Defender is the industry’s leading Recording / Playback and Monitoring platform. Companies can realize immediate and substantial ROI with Spectrum Defender.


  • Record and reproduce RF signals from off-air antennas (or other RF sources) for analysis, receiver regression testing, propagation modelling and other applications
  • Adjustable signal acquisition/record centre frequency from 20Hz to 3.6GHz, with 1Hz resolution (optional to 14 GHz)
  • Signal reproduction/play from 85MHz to 3.3GHz (optional to 6.6GHz)
  • Signal record bandwidth adjustable from 100kHz to 50MHz with 1Hz resolution
  • Integrated Low Noise Amplifier ensures acquisition of low-level RF signals
  • Excellent recording fidelity
  • Link with industry standard PXI Express RF instrumentation for expanded RF signal measurement and data acquisition tasks


  • Spectrum Monitoring
  • Signal Intelligence
  • Electronic Warfare
  • Real World RF Interference Testing
  • RF Channel Modeling

Medical Device Test Equipment

Medical Device Automated Test Equipment

Our vision is simple. To provide product testing solutions that enable you to design, validate and manufacture medical device products that enhance the lives of the consultants and patients using them.

We provide solutions that not only enable you to accurately test your products, but to also help you understand the vast amounts of test data generated between all of your departments. The result is better, faster and more accurate decision making on how to improve the quality of your products.
We have helped start-ups and most of the Fortune 1000 medical device companies across many medical device disciplines successfully test their products. You know the science, we know how to test

Functional Testing for Medical Devices

MedevATE, the Medical Device Test Equipment division of Cal-Bay Systems, knows Medical Device Testing, having worked with most of the major players in the medical device field, from start-ups to the Fortune 1000, and from cardiac to pulmonary to diabetes to artificial joints. Medical Device OEM’s face five challenges to producing quality medical devices: shorter product life cycles, more FDA regulations, deeper supply chains, complex electronics incorporated into their products, and a scarcity of qualified medical device engineers to write and maintain their test software. Cal-Bay understands these challenges, which is why over 50 percent of Fortune 1000 Medical Device OEM’s outsource to us.

Our solutions for Medical Device test include:

  • Solutions for Production Test of Electronic Medical Devices
  • Solutions for Design Verification Test for Medical Devices
  • Solutions for Reliability and Life Testing of New Medical Device Products
  • Solutions for Managing Test & Quality Data Generated from Worldwide Test Equipment

Unparalleled Track Record of Success in Functional Test for Medical Devices. Cal-Bay currently partners successfully with over 50 percent of the Fortune 500 Medical Device manufacturers, offering scalable enterprise medical device test solutions, including iVVivi, IntraStage and the FlexATE. 

We can meet your aggressive medical device testing schedule while still offering rigorous quality. Leveraging off-the-shelf tools like iVVivi, IntraStage, LabVIEW, TestStand, PXI and the FlexATE. Cal-Bay’s Plug-in FlexATE Framework can dramatically lower your risk and accelerate your schedule. More than 50 percent of the software needed for a typical medical device test system is ready-to-go with the FlexATE Framework – contact us today to find out more.
