Test and Measurement Instrument Fundamentals Series

T&M Webinar Series banner

Increasing device complexity and technology convergence are driving test systems to become more flexible, while cost pressures are demanding longer system lifetimes. A software-defined, modular architecture is the only way to accomplish these objectives. Modular instruments deliver flexible, software-defined solutions for complex measurement challenges, from DC to microwave frequencies.

Attend the Test & Measurement Fundamentals Webcast Series online in July 2014 to understand the fundamentals of instrumentation and how Modular instruments use high-speed buses and user-defined software to meet the needs of automated test equipment (ATE) today and in the future.
