How reliable is your design?

Intel offers free testing services to qualified customers designing platforms based on Intel® architecture.

Acoustic Testing

What is the major source of noise in your system? Our acoustic testing service allows you to send in a fully configured system or system components under evaluation. Intel® Platform Testing Services then provides the customer a report with the system-level acoustic comparative results on that specific system for sound power and sound pressure.

In compliance with ISO specifications, the testing detailed within the report greatly assists the customer in their selection and configuration of system ingredients, including video cards, fan heatsink solutions, and chassis (including chassis fans and power supplies) for the best acoustic solution. The report also gives you details the configuration of the system under test (SUT), the test methods and test equipment used to test the SUT, and any relevant modifications to the SUT or testing procedure that may be beneficial to the customer.

Our hemi-anechoic acoustic chambers can test your system for sound pressure and/or sound power levels:

  • Software workloads are used to evaluate acoustic noise of the system at idle, CPU stress of 50% and thermal test load, optical, and hard drive stress.
  • Noise levels are compared to Intel® acoustic landing zone targets.
  • Testing is done according to these ISO standards: 7779, 3734, 3735, 11201, 9296

Digital Assistant Testing

Does your system have personal digital assistant software installed? This test service allows customers to send in a fully configured system to verify the voice recognition capability has been enabled and configured properly.

Interfaces for portable electronic devices, as well as computers in general, are increasingly being enhanced by voice recognition software commonly referred to as a personal digital assistant. This voice recognition software often enables users to interact with portable electronic devices and computers in a more efficient manner than by punching keys in keypads or keyboards.
