Recognized TDS7000 Series



Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Tektronix, Inc.

    BEAVERTON, Ore., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- In the spirit of the innovation
 legacy set in motion 56 years ago by its founders, Tektronix, Inc.
 (NYSE:   TEK), today proudly announced that the TDS7000 Series digital phosphor
 oscilloscope (DPO) was named "2000 Innovation of the Year" at an awards
 ceremony held last night in San Francisco, Calif.
     The EDN Innovation of the Year awards program, sponsored by EDN Magazine,
 is dedicated to honoring outstanding engineering products in the electronics
 industry.  Now in its 11th year, this exclusive awards program recognizes
 unique, state-of-the art electronics products in 14 major product categories.
 The finalists are chosen from a wide selection of nominees by EDN's editorial
 staff.  Winners are then decided by reader ballot exclusively on the EDN
 Access website.  The TDS7000 Series received the honor in the Test and
 Measurement category.
     "It is with great pleasure and pride that we accept this award in
 recognition of the technology innovation and engineering excellence that
 brought the TDS7000 family to market," said David Churchill, vice president,
 Instrumentation Business Unit, Tektronix, Inc.  "This product has redefined
 how our customers address the most sophisticated engineering designs that are
 driving the evolution of communication and computer technologies."
     The TDS7000 Series leads the industry in addressing the critical
 measurement needs of engineers who design next-generation global
 communications and Internet products.  With new technologies delivering the
 quantum leap in performance desired by consumers, the development of those
 technologies also becomes more complicated.  Challenged by escalating signal
 speeds, sophisticated computer architectures, next-generation processors and
 ever-accelerating time-to-market pressures, the award-winning TDS7000 Series
 provides engineers a powerful tool to do more in less time.
     The TDS7000 Series DPOs provide 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 (SiGe) technology developed by IBM Corp.
     Based on an Open Windows(R) platform, this innovative DPO family offers
 unprecedented customization 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 information on
