Tektronix DPO7000 Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope Receives EE-Evaluation Engineering Readers’ Choice Award


Selected as Top Instrument for 2006

BEAVERTON, Ore., January 16, 2007 - Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE:TEK), a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, announced that the DPO7000 Series Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope has received a Readers’ Choice Award from the readers of EE-Evaluation Engineering magazine in the Instrumentation category. The awards honor the top product in seven categories as the best of 2006 determined by reader votes.

“Each year we look to our readers to choose the top products as part of our annual online reader poll to select the best products published in EE-Evaluation Engineering,” said Paul Milo, Editorial Director, EE-Evaluation Engineering. “For 2006, the Tektronix DPO7000 Series Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes were chosen. Readers found the technology innovation, features, and specifications unmatched for their class.”

For the 12th consecutive year, EE-Evaluation Engineering asked their readers to vote for the most outstanding from among the many products introduced to the test and measurement market by a number of equipment manufacturers. The selection process began by compiling a group of products representing ATE, Communications Test, Data Acquisition, Environmental Test, Instrumentation, PC Test, and Software. These determinations were based on the number of responses that each product received during the year through the RSLeads program.

“When Tektronix launched the DPO7000, it was our intent that the product, with its leading specifications and unmatched capabilities based on user needs, would transform the expectations of our customers,” said Martyn Etherington, Vice President, Instruments Business, Tektronix. “This recognition by the readers of EE-Evaluation Engineering is particularly pleasing as it is recognition from customers, our most important constituency. It is also validation of our commitment to provide products, applications and services to make our customers more productive.”
