Test and Measurement
Test and Measurement is 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.
