Test and Measurement Instruments Fundamentals Webcast Series

Systems are becoming more and more complex today in every industry ranging from Electronics to Aerospace. Devices have more features, more sensors, more sub systems and as a result they are becoming more difficult to test. Traditional instrumentation approach is not scaling at the same pace. Test engineers are moving towards a more flexible and smart approach of test: Modular Instruments.

Modular Instruments provide the flexibility and capability to solve these challenges. They use synchronized and modular set of I/O devices which are software programmable for scalable and powerful test solutions. This webinar series introduces you to Modular Instruments with tutorials and best practices on how to use them.


Understanding Modular Instruments for Developing Flexible, Scalable Test Systems

Modular Instrumentation uses shared components, high-speed buses, and open, user-defined software to meet the needs of automated test equipment (ATE). Modular instruments are defined in software residing on the host PC, which makes it possible for you to define measurements and analysis in real time. You can further extend the flexibility by deploying algorithms to an FPGA for increased performance.
