This is an extremely interesting model. Enabling companies to outsource more test services and decrease their individual capital investment in test equipment and having easier access to qualified test and measurement personnel can be a big factor in improving the bottom line. At the same time, this means that some personnel will need to shift their job within their company or change companies if they want to continue doing the same functions.

If Presto succeeds in becoming the industry "go to" lab, they will need to ensure that they successfully segregate information from different clients whose emerging technologies they are testing. Probably UL testing labs will provide some elements of a model - but Presto will probably be involved even earlier in the development process when the data is even more sensitive.

This is very important for the fabless semi conductor vendors to actually outsource the critical jobs to firms like presto. They can use the expertise personal without actually a high investment. The semiconductor testing always needs expensive equipments to actually make any signal or noise measurements for the characterization.
