The Coming Modular Instrument Disruption

Modular instrumentation has seen steady development, outgrowing the traditional box instrumentation over the past decade and the test and measurement market as a whole. Nevertheless, the traditional instrument market remains about 10 times the size of the open-system modular market, largely defined by PXI, VXI, and the emerging AXIe standard.

This is about to change dramatically, due to a number of factors. Powerful forces are igniting a disruptive change in the marketplace where open modular systems will become the dominant architecture for automated test solutions.

In this in-depth industry analysis I use work from great economists, John Forbes Nash and Michael Porter, to analyze the changes occurring in the test and measurement battlefield.  Customer, suppliers, competitors are all analyzed.  My conclusion: A disruptive shift is occurring in the test and measurement industry over the next few years shifting automated test systems heavily towards modular instruments.
