Almost any electronic technology has one truism attached to it: You can’t develop it if you can’t test it. This is particularly the case with wireless and other communications products. Thankfully, there’s a great group of test-equipment manufacturers who work out at the leading edge of the technologies and beyond, giving us instruments that can test and measure even the most exotic and complex equipment.
To that point, we’re now beginning to see instruments for developing next-generation (5G) wireless gear. The new 5G category, let alone the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) business, should keep instrument manufacturers busy for the coming years.
