Test and Measurement

Test and Measurement

Test and measurement is one of the more valued categories in electronics, but it’s said that it’s not the most glamorous. The simple matter of it all is, if you cannot assure yourself and potential customers that your latest electronic design actually works, then it’s not worth anything really. And if your design does fail to work, how do you find out exactly what is wrong with it?

Test and Measurement are critical for finding those issues within an electronic system design that prevent it from being fully functional.

Electronic components are also subject to a variety of tests that involve anything from physical inspection to product-level functional testing to verifying functionality in a network environment. However unglamorous as it is, Test & Measurement is an essential asset to the electronics design process.
