Instrument maker Tektronix took home a bronze medal in the recently completed 2022 Leap Awards.
The LEAP Awards celebrates the most innovative and forward-thinking products serving the design engineering space. Tektronix won in the test and measurement category covering equipment as typically used by design and development engineers engaged in product design and development.
The winning product is the Tektronix 2 Series MSO portable oscilloscope that provides benchtop performance in the field and lab without sacrificing functionality. Weighing less than four pounds and only 1.5 inches thick, the scope fits easily into a backpack, allowing engineers to go beyond traditional workflows. Its intuitive UI and sleek design are reflected in the modern 10.1” touchscreen, conventional control knobs and optional, hot-swappable battery pack that supplies up to eight hours of power in the field.
Tektronix says it built the scope from the ground up, tapping customers at each stage of development, starting with paper sketches. Tektronix asked what pain points existed in how customers got their work done, what common tasks they were performing and how often, as well as small and large challenges that got in their way. They literally sat down with customers at their workbenches throughout the design process. This customer obsession led to the big problem Tektronix solved–engineers wanted to be able to test and measure whatever they wanted, wherever they wanted.
With bandwidth up to 500 MHz, the 2 Series MSO offers the widest bandwidth in the category, maximizing price and performance for engineers across multiple sectors, including embedded design, education, industrial, automotive, power electronics, and automated tests. This innovation includes patents # 8,374,811 and 10,680,500.
