Tektronix Oscilloscope Receives Further Recognition

TDS7000 Series Honored by the Readers of Key Industry Publications in the

United States and Germany



Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from Tektronix, Inc.

    BEAVERTON, Ore., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE:   TEK),
 today announced that the TDS7000 Series digital phosphor oscilloscope (DPO)
 was selected "Readers' Choice for Instrumentation" in the 8th annual survey
 conducted by Evaluation Engineering, a leading U.S. magazine and  "Test &
 Measurement Product of the Year 2000" by the readers of Elektronik, a leading
 German publication.  Both publications utilized online balloting to enable
 readers to cast their votes for the product.
     Escalating signal speeds, sophisticated computer architectures,
 next-generation processors and ever-accelerating time-to-market pressures
 challenge the engineer to do more in less time.  Although these new
 technologies deliver the quantum leap in performance desired, they complicate
 the verification, debug and characterization of processor-based applications.
 The TDS7000 Series leads the industry in addressing the critical measurement
 needs of these engineers who design next-generation global communications and
 Internet products.
     "Enabling our customers' needs to test today's advanced digital designs,
 the TDS7000 Series provides depth of performance, easy operation and
 connectivity," said David Churchill, vice president, Instrumentation Business
 Unit, Tektronix, Inc.  "We are delighted that readers of these publications
 have once again chosen this product family because it validates Tektronix'
 passion for customer-centric innovation that enables and drives the evolution
 of global communication and Internet technologies."
 
     About the TDS7404
     Introduced in June 2000, the TDS7000 Series DPOs provides engineers with
 advanced test capabilities for verification, debug and characterization of
 sophisticated electronic designs.  The family's flagship product, the TDS7404,
 is the world's fastest real-time oscilloscope, delivering unmatched 4-GHz
 real-time performance, enabled by Silicon Germanium technology developed by
 IBM Corp.
     Based on an Open Windows(R) platform, this innovative DPO family offers
 unprecedented customization and extensibility using Windows-compatible
 hardware and software, including third-party analysis tools.  Classic
 analog-style controls, large touch-sensitive display and graphical menus
 provide intuitive control.  Standard interfaces allow expansion of the TDS7000
 Series to include peripherals such as storage devices, a modem, or a wireless
 LAN connection.  Once networked, users can share files with team members
 worldwide, access print resources and the Internet, and exchange e-mail.  More
