ablet com­put­ers and smart­phones have be­come so pop­u­lar that they have a sig­nif­i­cant pres­ence at the work­place too—not as de­vices un­der test but as part of the test sys­tem. While the com­put­ing power made avail­able by these de­vices is no­table, they can­not re­place the PC and re­lated mea­sure­ment plat­forms like PXi. In­stead, these de­vices are suit­able for data con­sump­tion and re­port view­ing, and sys­tem mon­i­tor­ing and con­trol.

Na­tional In­stru­ments’ Au­to­mated Test Out­look 2012 ex­plains: “The ex­plo­sion of mo­bile de­vices like tablets and smart­phones pro­vides com­pel and man­agers in­volved in au­to­mated test who need re­mote ac­cess to test sta­tus in­for­ma­tion and re­sults. While to­day’s tech­nol­ogy of­fers so­lu­tions for mon­i­tor­ing or re­mote re­port­ing via mo­bile de­vices, test or­gan­i­sa­tions will need new ex­per­tise to unite the net­work­ing, Web ser­vices and mo­bile app por­tions of the so­lu­tion.”
