|Global Market for Embedded Instrumentation, Forecast to 2023|
|Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 will Create Huge Market Opportunity for Embedded Instrumentation in the Future|
The demand for test & measurement (T&M) equipment if persistent for any type of electronic systems manufactured across industry verticals such as automotive, telecommunications, aerospace, military, consumer electronics, industrial, and medical. With the exponentially increasing demand for reducing the size of electronic devices and increasing their functionality, in hand with the semiconductor and printed circuit boards (PCB) technology advancements. These factors have also increased the complexity of testing electronic devices. Traditionally, these types of testing are done using bench-top and PC-based T&M equipment via probes. Over time, the limitations of these technologies have made intrusive testing incapable of assessing complex PCBs, chips, chip-to-chip interconnects, input/output (I/O) buses, and integrated circuits (IC). Moreover, the present-day chips house billions of transistor gates, which have vastly increased device complexities, and lead to the development of multi-core chips, multiple dies with new complex packaging, and 3D ICs, making the design, testing, validation, and debugging process more complicated.
