Semiconductor Test: An application for modular instruments?

Last week I wrote about the battle for market share in the test and measurement industry (see Battle of the Titans).   In that article I reprinted the Frost and Sullivan rankings, courtesy of Jessy Cavazos:

  • $3.4B  Danaher (Tektronix, Keithley, and Fluke brands)
  • $3.3B  Agilent Technologies
  • $1.4B  Teradyne
  • $1.3B  Advantest
  • $1.0B  National Instruments

I observed that if modular instrumentation becomes more widely adopted, as it is on track to do, the industry will face an architectural disruption and this scorecard could become scrambled.  This blogpost I explore whether PXI and AXIe can address semiconductor test itself.
