National Instruments Identifies Five Trends of Test and Measurement Technology
“Companies are turning to the latest technologies including PXI, FPGAs and multicore processors to develop high-performance test systems that can meet consumer demand for higher-quality products. Fortunately, more technology vendors are developing industry-standard tools capable of solving problems that previously depended on expensive, dedicated test systems,” said Eric Starkloff, National Instruments director of test product marketing.
Test engineers in industries ranging from aerospace and defense to consumer electronics are facing the challenge of testing increasingly complicated designs with shrinking timelines and budgets. To address these issues, engineers and scientists are incorporating new test and measurement technologies that are capable of meeting complex design requirements without raising costs. National Instruments , a worldwide leader in automated test solutions, has identified five trends it anticipates will significantly influence the test and measurement industry over the next three years.
