New challenges are brought to the test and measurement (T&M) market with the everincreasing availability of new technology and with new ways to connect and interact between man and machine as well as machine to machine. New future-proof and cost efficient T&M products are required to enable effective test and validation not only during product development and product manufacturing, but also throughout the lifetime of the product. The T&M market can be divided into three sub-segments, each having specific characteristics. The first segment consists of the general-purpose T&M segment, which includes end applications such as oscilloscopes and signal or logic analyzers/generators.
