Perhaps nothing gets tested more thoroughly or at greater expense than semiconductors. So much is riding on every chip, whether it is going into a SpaceX rocket, a pacemaker, or a plasma TV. The testing process begins before a single chip has been fabricated.
Test and measurement is a critical function in many industries, particularly those that rely on equipment, machinery, or devices that require a high level of accuracy. In today’s connected and automated world, that covers a lot of territory. Sophisticated electronics are highly valuable in industries and applications as diverse as healthcare, aerospace and defense, transportation,
