Test & Measurement

Test and measurement equipment underpins the product design process, enabling engineers to verify their design is working in the way they want. If not, these essential devices help them to find out where the problems lie.

In this section, New Electronics keeps design engineers up to date with the Test and Measurement market, bringing a range of information about the products and their application.

Pushing the envelope

State-of-the-art wireless and computing technologies are demanding greater innovation when it comes to test & measurement, as Sebastian Richter explains to New Electronics.

All eyes on high-speed comms

If there is a one protocol that has effectively taken over communications it is Ethernet. Driven by demand within and between data centres, the networking standard is moving into areas like front- and back-haul communication for high-speed wireless cellular networks.

Do robot cars dream of virtual jeeps?

At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), carmakers decided the way forward for dashboards was to extend them and, like military aircraft, project their graphics onto the windscreen as head-up displays.

Digital twin to go the distance

Three years ago, Toyota’s CEO declared the company would need to put autonomous vehicles through almost 9 billion miles of testing before they could be deemed safe to use on public roads.

Full Force Ahead!

Making connections

PCB Design and Manufacturing Live opens its doors for a second year, welcoming a host of the industry’s PCB experts.

Deploying technology in space

When selecting and using electronic components in space they will need to be reliable and capable of surviving the harsh conditions they’ll experience over an extended period of time.

Closing the gap

Smart home technology has been promising much, for so long, but helped by new wireless standards and the use of voice technology is it now beginning to deliver?

System success

“Software-defined testers will be critical in keeping up with the evolution in automotive design,” said Jeff Phillips, Head of Automotive Marketing at National Instruments (NI) in an interview with New Electronics last year.

Enabling rapid 5G roll-out

With the rollout of 5G expected to ramp up in the coming year, a complete spectrum of test & measurement solutions will be required, according to Meik Kottkamp.

Mobile 3D sensing

VCSEL technology encourages progress in biometric solutions such as mobile 3D sensing, according to Bianka Schnabel.
