What are the new programming methods and tools, and application models needed to make this happen?

Will the move to parallel systems in the PC and embedded worlds have an impact on test architectures, creating the potential for parallel test?

Will this require new test and development tools?

How will a graphical programming tool, such as LabVIEW, evolve in the coming years as a result of the impact of parallel computing?
