Designing and testing sensor and device networks for wireless IoT deployments requires expertise in multiple areas, including knowledge of wireless interfaces, sensor network design, and wireless test protocols and equipment. Do you have the know-how?

Download our helpful how-to guide to learn the nine key questions to answer before you begin exploring the design of an RFID-powered IoT network. Our Q&A provides insights into these critical areas of consideration:

  • What are the primary test considerations for IoT networks? You will need to be familiar and comfortable with integrating analog RFID capability into designs that are primarily digital.
  • Which is the best RF strategy, build-your-own ICs or buy prebuilt modules? This depends on your end goals. Roll-your-own ICs allow for greater customization, while pre-certified modules might get your product to market faster.
  • How can you keep testing costs down? PC-based or multi-function test systems can save money, as can pre-owned equipment.

Significant advances in electronics development and wireless design are on the horizon. To develop and test complex and highly integrated technologies based on these advances, your organization will require a more powerful and sophisticated T&M processes.

Are you prepared to capture a 6GHz signal?

Download our new infographic to learn about the upcoming trends and technologies that will soon impact your test and measurement needs. Your classrooms, R&D labs, and manufacturing and QA operations will need to be prepared – take a look at our infographic for a glimpse into the T&M future.

Key Trends: Higher frequencies and wider bandwidth are on the way, as are devices that require greater interoperability while sharing limited RF spectrum. Meanwhile, the Internet is increasingly embedded into everything, from cars to toasters to light bulbs. How will you develop and test these new and more complex devices?

Products of the future: New technologies will power new products and systems, including autonomous vehicles, drones and aerial surveillance devices, the Internet of Things, and connected manufacturing processes. These will depend on a new generation of smarter, more tightly integrated, and more technologically capable systems. How will you address the T&M requirements for these new technologies and markets?

Gaze into the crystal ball with our infographic and learn how you can be ready for upcoming T&M advances.

Ensuring you have the right test and measurement equipment at just the moment you need it makes great business sense. But in real life, just-in-time test equipment inventory can be quite a challenge to plan for and pull off.

On the one hand, fast-moving test and research projects and agile development practices can make it difficult to see into the future and forecast what your electronic test equipment needs may be. And tying up capital in expensive equipment that isn’t used frequently isn’t a good use of inventory dollars—unless you deal with a test equipment supplier that’s willing and able to move quickly. The long lead times that many instrument manufacturers require to fill orders can make it hard to implement more efficient T&M inventory management strategies.

We’ve pulled together a trio of case studies that describe how engineers overcome significant obstacles to get the electronic test equipment they need, when they need it.  Wondering how to resolve delays and use long-standing relationships with manufacturers to cut through the red tape and expedite deliveries for your organization? Download our flipbook of case studies, How Engineers Get Electronic Test & Measurement Equipment When They Need It, for real-life examples of how companies and educational institutions manage their T&M inventory more strategically.

In addition to fast and responsive customer service, organizations also have the choice of new, used, rental, and rent-to-own options for test equipment acquisition. These programs provide an alternative way to procure necessary test and measurement gear without tying up budget dollars in a capital purchase, and obtaining exactly the gear you need, when you need it, for as long as you need it.
