The 10th Annual EE Readers Choice Awards recognized the year's best products in the following categories: ATE, Communications Test, Data Acquisition, EMC, Environmental Test, ESD, Instrumentation, and Software. Votes were tallied after readers were emailed an invitation that included the URL to the ballot and accompanying information on the selected products.
"We congratulate Tektronix on winning the Communications Test category in EE's 2003 Readers Choice Awards," said Paul Milo, Editorial Director and Associate Publisher of EE-Evaluation Engineering. "This is the fifth time in the history of the competition, three times for Instrumentation and twice for Communications Test, that Tektronix has been selected to receive this honor, which is a tribute to the types of instruments the company produces."
"Tektronix considers receiving an award that is given by the readers of one of the industry's leading publications as the highest honor," said Rick King, Vice President, Spectrum Analyzer Product Line, Tektronix, Inc. "We designed the WCA200A to address today's most challenging RF and wireless applications. The EE Readers Choice Award is a testament to Tektronix' technical expertise and understanding of our customer's most complex measurement challenges."
The design challenge of integrating more complex 2.5G and 3G components into small mobile devices presents a demand for powerful test instruments that provide unique insight, enabling designers to quickly solve their toughest development problems. To answer this need, Tektronix' WCA200A Series offers a unique combination of Real Time Spectrum Analysis (RTSA) with high performance and flexible modulation analysis, making them ideal for characterization, troubleshooting and verification of wireless devices. The RTSA "trigger, capture, analyze" capabilities enable the WCA200A to trigger on time varying and RF signals that swept spectrum and vector signal analyzers fail to see and seamlessly capture and store a span RF frequencies over time, which enables in-depth analysis with time correlated multi-domain views.
