It's fair to say that today most design engineers troubleshoot with boxed instruments. Do you foresee a day when your personal tablet and specific apps will replace the screens, buttons & knobs on these instruments?

Yes & No ...

Yes the computer orientated tool is very useful and handy. I'm not sure the Ipad is the best interface -
several of my passwords can't be used on mine because of the restricted keyboard.

And No - there are times when a voltage or current needs measuring. We also have applications where
an analogue signal generator (sine wave) is needed at low frequencies and in the mv range.
