Tektronix helps businesses measure, analyze and test next-generation devices to ensure accurate performance, reliability and compatibility.
It all started with an oscilloscope. During the post-World War II electronics revolution, C. Howard Vollum and Melvin J. “Jack” Murdock invented the first time-base triggered oscilloscope. The pair founded Tektronix in 1946, and the company expanded from test & measurement to “full-solution” to research & development. Tektronix originally joined the Danaher portfolio in 2007 and now plays a key role in Fortive’s product realization platform, delivering patented technology to fuel high-speed data centers, wireless applications and cloud computing. Its customers rely on the company more than ever to solve design challenges, improve productivity and dramatically reduce time to market.
Every day, Tektronix eliminates the barriers between inspiration and realization of world-changing technologies to drive essential technology forward.
