VTI was benchmarked against, and selected from, over 50 leading companies based on criteria for best practices in the data acquisition hardware and software market.  Six categories were used to benchmark performance, including product features/functionality, quality/complexity, customization, mix, target market, and unique name/brand recognition.

"We are honored to have been selected from among the industry's leading data acquisition instrumentation companies to receive this honor," said Paul Dhillon, VTI's President and CEO. "This is a great result of our partnering approach with our customers, and above industry commitment to R&D.

"The Product Differentiation Excellence Award is an influential recognition of VTI Instruments Corporation's accomplishments in the data acquisition hardware and software market," said Sivakumar Narayanaswamy, Industry Analyst with Frost & Sullivan's Measurement and Instrumentation Practice. "VTI has been singled out for their ability to deliver excellence and best practices across the industry; this best-in-class recognition signifies outstanding performance across all major functional areas of the business."

Flagship LXI products, such as the EX1000A Series Integrated Data Acquisition Signal Conditioning Platform, the EX1200 Precision Signal Switch, Measure and I/O Platform and the EX2500 LXI/VXI Controller were identified as leading selection contributors.  VTI's focus on introducing fully LXI Class A compliant instrumentation was identified as a key enabling factor; this approach saves customers time and money while providing unlimited, synchronized, precision distributed measurements.

VTI's open standard/platform development strategy, of providing solutions that are forward looking as well as backward integrating, was identified as another key selection criterion. These characteristics are essential to the user segments that VTI serves and ensure maximum long-term return on test system investments.  Additionally, design features such as integrated signal conditioning and built-in self-calibration deliver exceptional measurement accuracies, while the modular, scalable design methodology ensures maximum flexibility.
