Test and MeasurementSubscribe
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.

@davecole Thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for...
This is a bit of a vague question, I think you are asking for a circuit that would allow it to detect a thing and if it sees that then to look for additional features. Certain combinations...

There are three key steps for successful implementation of Power over Ethernet (PoE) which are, equipment selection, cable certification along with installation and troubleshooting.
Two-pole voltage testers weakest point is the cable as it is repeatedly bent, twisted, wrapped and put under constant strain, so Fluke's T110, T130, T150 now perform 3x better in cable bending tests
The main task of electrical inspections with a thermal imager is to find anomalies such as defective electrical connections or overload on wires, components and switchboards. Carrying out regular inspections can help reduce failure rate by around 80%
SDRplay’s family of Software Defined Radios are popular low cost 1kHz to 2GHz communications receivers. This Spectrum Analyser software transforms such a device into a low cost Windows/USB-based Spectrum Analyser for the lab.
Typically buildings represent about 40% of the total energy consumption and costs, so the use of an energy monitor and logger is essential to manage and understand the issues, but for successful energy monitoring there are ten key steps to follow:

Basic oscilloscopes are windows into signals for troubleshooting circuits or checking signal quality. They generally come with bandwidths from 50 to 200 MHz and are found in almost all design/education labs, service centre and manufacturing site.
DAQ systems can be very versatile for the characterisation, monitoring, and control of your test process. To make the most out of your DAQ system, you can reduce measurement errors by taking these simple steps during your setup and configuration.
