Tektronix wins ACE award for test and measurement

Tektronix’s Keithley DMM7510 was named a winner in the 2016 UBM Americas ACE (Annual Creativity in Electronics) Awards in the Test and Measurement category.

The awards programme honours the people and companies behind the technologies and products that are changing the world of electronics. The winners were announced at an awards ceremony at the San Jose Convention Centre, during the Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley.

The DMM7510 7½-Digit Graphical Sampling Multimeter integrates a digital multimeter, a digitiser for waveform capture, and a capacitive touchscreen user interface. The DMM7510 offers 1 pA sensitivity, 1 MHz sampling and can store over 27 million readings. Tektronix says the DMM7510 is suited for applications such as profiling the power consumption of battery-operated products in IoT devices, implantable medical devices and fitness monitoring devices. The DMM7510 can measure both ultra-low sleep modes and capture complex load current bursts enabling design and test engineers to fully characterize and test the power consumed in all of a device’s operating states.

Commenting on receiving the ACE award, Mike Flaherty, general manager, Keithley product line at Tektronix, said: “The DMM7510 is the industry’s first graphical sampling multimeter and winning this prestigious award is another indication of the impact this breakthrough instrument is having on the industry. The DMM7510’s combination of high performance and high ease of use gives our customers unparalleled insight into test results.”
