LONDON Phil Rawlings, Technical Director of Cyth Systems U.K., a National Instruments Alliance Partner, has become the first engineer outside of America and the 4th engineer worldwide to achieve Certified TestStand Architect status. This is the highest level of NI TestStand certification available.
NI Certification is a professional qualification that validates technical growth and skill in using NI products. In particular the achievement recognises Rawlings (left), who is based in Newbury, experience in manufacturing test principles and meeting manufacturing test system needs. The Certification also signifieshis mastery of the NI TestStand architecture and its customisations to provide complex and comprehensive test solutions.
Rebecca Sherwood, Customer Education Manager at National Instruments, said, “This Certification will certainly provide Cyth Systems with a competitive edge in their market. The achievement also emphasises the commitment Cyth has shown in the U.S. and Europe in working with NI to bring their system development and architecture skills to the highest level”.
Joe Spinozzi, Director of Marketing at Cyth Systems, said, “Phil Rawlings’ achievement in becoming the first Certified TestStand Architect outside of the US has a significant impact on our company mission. Cyth Systems continue to push the concepts of making ‘code-reuse’ a reality, ‘non-programming’ ATE solutions achievable, and driving down the cost of these systems by increasing the utilisation of COTS (Commercial-Off-the-shelf Technology).
This certification is the most rigorous NI offers and validates not only Phil’s technical and software knowledge, but also his ability to design and architect the right test system for small or large applications.” said “All of Cyth’s technical personnel are certified developers in LabVIEW, NI TestStand, or both”.
National Instruments offers certifications for LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI and NI TestStand. The Associate Developer, Developer and Architect levels represent basic, advanced and expert skills with NI products. James Peter, Technical Director of TBG Solutions became the first engineer in the UK and Ireland to achieve Certified LabVIEW Architect status, the highest level of LabVIEW certification available.
