As Moore’s law continues to influence the performance and complexity of test systems, there’s an increased need for robust system management capabilities. Test managers responsible for maintaining the uptime of a test system are looking for improved management features in their test equipment - driving a trend toward improved manageability features that lower test system integration risks, time to value, and total cost of ownership.
More and more test engineers are looking for improved:
Asset management capabilities (by knowing which test assets are being used and how they’re being applied, test managers can lower costs by maximizing the use of available equipment)
Manageability support (comprehensive platform monitoring and control, in response to complex measurement devices; modern modular instruments, especially RF instruments, offer unprecedented measurement flexibility)
So how can these improved manageability features impact a business’ bottom line?
