Question
Dear ZZ

Do you feel Digital IC Testing Facility can be integrated in Digital Multimeter?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
For stand alone IC it requires a dedicated testing system designed specifically  for that chip or family of chips.

But for in circuit testing the VOM or digital MM is very useful because it can check for voltages and other circuit parameters.  

The pin arrangement and functionality differs from chip to chip so for thorough testing and analysis it requires dedicated testing apparatus; or at least specialized designs.  In product manufacturing locations they usually have test engineers who design special testing jigs and software to run programs on the IC chip under examination.
