@krisi,

Don't know. Maybe you could contact them and find out. I'd like to know too.

I don't have an urgent need to use this technology...just curious...you would think across any platform...I could see that option used extensively....people in meetings could review lab tests in real time

Doesn't LXI spec require a web server?

If so, then all LXI compatible instruments are now IoT compatible, I guess.

The nice thing about using a web server instead of an app is that it should work with anything: phone, tablet, laptap, desktop,...

Remote monitoring and testing

"Remote monitoring and testing are state-of-the-art today, in particular in development and test environments,.."

I agree that remote monitoring and testing would gain more and more popularities and the smart phone would play a major role in that as it would provide a great amount of flexibility & convenience to the people travelling and/or working remotely. I won't need to be anxious in the weekends when there is a test running in the lab, if I get the test data & status on my phone.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
