Oscilloscopes -- we all have them, and we use them often. They've come a long way since the days of analog phosphor displays and bandwidths of a few megaHertz. But are oscilloscopes keeping up with the rest of the electronics business? The market research company Frost & Sullivan called the oscilloscope market "challenged" in 2012. How so?
To find out, you can attend a one-hour webcast, Analyst Briefing: Checking the Pulse of the Global Oscilloscopes Market, given by Jessy Cavazos, Frost & Sullivan's test-and measurement market analyst. The webcast will take place Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 11:00 a.m. ET/8:00 a.m. PT.
Here's the short description of the webcast from Frost & Sullivan.
The oscilloscopes market, the largest product category in the general purpose test equipment industry, has been challenged in 2012. This comes despite positive trends surrounding electronics and their increasing complexity that necessitate new capabilities in oscilloscopes. Will more positive economic conditions change the fate of this market in 2013 and beyond?
In its description, the firm also speaks of "Mega Trends that will affect the oscilloscopes market." Because I'd really like to know what that means, I registered using the link above. However, a scheduling conflict prevents me from viewing it live. I'll be sure to catch the archived version. After viewing the archived webcast, I'll write a review in my Rowe's and Columns blog on EDN.
