Tektronix's Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes Set Standard for Xerox

7/15/2004 - Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE: TEK), a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, announced that Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has purchased 114 Tektronix Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes (DPO's) for use throughout the company. Of the chosen instruments, 91 are the new TDS5000B with MyScopeTM, the industry's first customizable user interface.

There are many applications for oscilloscopes within Xerox including advanced timing analysis, power supply design, power quality testing, current measurements, high voltage measurements, and many design applications.

"The TDS5000B oscilloscope is a very powerful tool, and many of the engineers here at Xerox use very advanced measurement and analysis functions," said John Sullivan, Application Engineer, Xerox. "But it's designed so well that anyone familiar with an oscilloscope can use it. The ease of use greatly increases productivity."

"Xerox is known as one of the world's leading electronics innovators," said Colin Shepard, Vice President, Oscilloscope Products, Tektronix. "We are extremely pleased that Xerox chose Tektronix as its preferred supplier for oscilloscopes. The decision to standardize on Tektronix Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes will help Xerox to improve design and manufacturing processes, lower development costs and shorten time to market."

"We set out to find the best technology, best value and the best business partner for Xerox," said Alan Sleeman, Manager, Asset Management, Xerox. "Our engineers loved the TDS5000B. In a nutshell, we were able to displace much more expensive equipment while increasing capability, productivity, and lower our costs."

About the TDS5000B
The TDS5000B Series are digital phosphor oscilloscopes (DPO) that provide insight into signal behavior by displaying, storing and analyzing complex signals in real-time to enable engineers and technicians to more efficiently design, debug, and test their devices. The Series incorporates MyScopeTM functionality, enabling users to quickly and easily customize the oscilloscope's user interface to meet their unique requirements. Users can create a virtually unlimited number of custom MyScope control windows, enabling multiple users of a shared oscilloscope to each have their own custom interface. In addition, the TDS5000B Series uses context sensitive menus with the Microsoft Windows® mouse right-click and scroll wheel features. When pointing the cursor at an area of interest on the display - e.g., a waveform displayed on channel one - users can right-click to bring up a menu of possible controls.

About the TDS3000B
The TDS3000B Series are digital phosphor oscilloscopes (DPO) that offer a host of features aimed at users in electronic design, production, and maintenance. Among the most innovative of these are WaveAlertTM Waveform Anomaly Detection, which automatically detects and alerts the user to anomalous waveforms, and e*ScopeTM web-based remote control capability, which enables remote instrument control via Internet browser.
