D.E.V.I.C.E. is an encyclopedia of terms used by manufacturers of test and measurement equipment. T&M Atlantic created this service to better explain the functionality of instruments it offers, and to highlight the latest developments in the world of T&M Atlantic. We are using such tools as flash and animation to bring words and pictures to life and to create not just an understanding but also an appreciation for technology that goes into the design of every instrument.
