Test & Measurement  
Advances in technology such as 5G, the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, connected cars and autonomous vehicles are bringing rapid change to the test and measurement industry. 

In addition to greater measurement accuracy and massive data collection capabilities, the importance of test and measurement has expanded to ensure better reliability and performance of applications, as well as to address new concerns about the quality of the user experience.

Technical Challenges
Connectivity and power for test and measurement applications

There is an increased need for performance testing such as power consumption and battery life, radio frequency, coexistence and interference, as well as data security and high-speed data transfer. Digital devices need to be tested to ensure their compliance with regulatory standards, and testing systems must be able to detect and predict manufacturing defects during mass production.  

In the automative testing industry, stricter standards and customer requirements result in even more rigorous testing regimes. Testing occurs at various stages, such as during and after production, stress testing, fatigue testing and in-car testing.   Connectivity plays an important role in enabling the new generation of vehicles to exchange information with all related systems and equipments needed for the ever more demanding testing. 

Cloud computing and advanced analytics are pushing Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to look for improved and more powerful test equipment. The tougher regulatory burdens facing OEMs have led to the need for higher volumes of data to be tested and measured accurately: 

  • Reliable and high-quality testing equipment is needed at every stage in the product lifecycle.  
  • The rising demand for miniature devices calls for engineers to quickly and accurately measure current, voltage and other parameters. 
  • Test and measurement equipment contends with different types of devices, requiring mixed configurations with higher contact densities and voltages.  
  • Connectivity plays a crucial role in driving significant advancements, exemplified by technologies like Single Pair Ethernet that facilitate the transfer of data from multiple sensors in a vehicle via smaller and more lightweight cables and connectors.
  • More efficient and less costly Single Pair Ethernet opens up possibilities for creating integrated and cross-functional networks. 
  • Interconnect solutions that ensure high quality and performance must be readily available from a single source, in order to facilitate logistics and purchasing.
  • Reduced connector sizes should offer modular configurations without compromising signal integrity.
