JOT Automates Final Testing of Smart WearablesFebruary 12, 2015 | JOT Automation
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
JOT Automation, the leading supplier of test and production solutions, automates the final testing of smart wearables for an enriched end-user experience and shortens the time-to-market in the highly competitive market. JOT G3, known as an all-in-one final tester for smartphones, also enables fully automatic tests on wearables like smartwatches in a repeatable and reliable environment.
JOT G3 executes multiple tests in a single platform. The solution with a compact footprint is capable of running all the required DUT interface tests on, for example, RF, electrics, mechanics, touch screen, buttons, audio, and plug-in connections.
Wearable products have been on the markets for a long time, but only recently has the offering become fashionable. Juniper Research has predicted that smart wearables hardware revenue will reach 19 billion USD globally by 2018.
“We might witness even greater market potential. The cake will be big but there will be many takers. The market will be crowded with competition. Winners will have the capability to increase the speed of the product development process and the quality of its output,” said Mika Mämmelä, Business Line Director at JOT Automation.
“Consumers expect small devices with multiple functionalities and robust reliability at an affordable price. We believe that billions of performance and design driven wearables won’t be shipped in the time-to-market with satisfactory precision, quality and cost without flexible automation.“
The company is showcasing the key features of the JOT G3 all-in-one final tester at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on March 2-5. Visit JOT Automation at Hall 5 Stand 5D36.

Global TV Shipments to Fall Below 197 Million Units for the First Time in 2023, Slight Growth of 0.2% Expected in 202411/29/2023 | TrendForce
TrendForce’s latest research indicates that despite a decrease in the CPI in Europe and the US this year, consumer budgets are still constrained due to the current high-interest-rate environment, and the real estate bubble in China has suppressed TV demand. Moreover, a significant increase in TV panel prices this year has led brands to scale down promotional events.
