Understanding Modular Instruments for Developing Flexible, Scalable Test Systems

Overview

Modular Instrumentation uses shared components, high-speed buses, and open, user-defined software to meet the needs of automated test equipment (ATE). Modular instruments are defined in software residing on the host PC, which makes it possible for you to define measurements and analysis in real time. You can further extend the flexibility by deploying algorithms to an FPGA for increased performance.
