In many ways it’s much like purchasing a car.   With a car, the first step is deciding that it’s time to move on and upgrade to a vehicle that meets your current needs.

Every path to enlightenment is filled with questions. We often pose the following to our customers: “Do you think your current test equipment is good enough to meet your current needs? Will it be good enough to keep you ahead of your competition next year, or the year after? How much would you benefit from better technology if you had the budget… (Show more)

For instance, the Death Star’s superlaser, powered by eight focused kyber crystals, is capable of destroying an entire planet!
