Instrument evolution

It is interesting to reflect upon the evolution of instruments. With SmartPhones, "instruments" may become peripherals and sensors with the SmartPhone serving as the control panel, display, and (perhaps) processor. This poses an interesting marketing problem for the instrument vendors. Historically it was the control panel, display, and packaging that impressed the buyer and drove sales.  The rest of the instrument was pretty much out of sight and out of mind. Now any processing done by the "instrument" may be hidden in a small electronics module which is little more than a thickened section of the sensor wire and the purchased instrument may be a SmartPhone accessory.

Can't forget the business card

I still get a smile remembering the business card I got once.

It said,

If it works, it's a Fluke

@MFOSS582, I did get a live demo of hte Mooshimeter. Also an interesting concept in that it's wireless, but the Fluke system goes far beyond, with it's ability to connect to a second phone and display data. OTOH, Fluke is a large company with far more resources.

Similar to the Mooshimeter

I believe the upcoming Mooshimeter (http://moosh.im/) already has some or all of the above capabilities. I wonder if this kind of connectivity is the next big thing for instrumentation.

 

Disclaimer: I went to college with the designers of the Mooshimeter.

For industrial mobile access, there's Groov

I haven't taken an in-depth look, but Opto 22's Groov look pretty sweet for remote equipment access - it's a somewhat similar concept to Fluke, but for mobile access to industrial equipment.  The groov system has a box (~$2K or so IIRC) in the middle between remote access and the equipment.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
