At the LEAP Awards dinner gala in Costa Mesa, Calif., the following companies were awarded trophies in the category of Test & Measurement.
This year’s inaugural LEAP Awards competition honored ground-breaking new products that set a new standard for innovation. Judges rated candidates on categories that included societal impact, industry impact, technical sophistication, creativity, and value to customers.
Three judges chose finalists for the T&M category: Geoffrey Haigh, Principal/Senior Partner, Haigh Consulting LLP; Sam John, President, Innovative Products Inc.; and Bill Schweber, Engineer, Author, Editor, Jaffa Engineering.
The finalists, in no particular order, were Anritsu with its MP1900A signal quality analyzer-R; Mentor, a Siemens Business, with its T3Ster and FloTherm and FloTherm XT calibration; and Tektronix with two entries – the DAQ6510 Data Acquisition and Multimeter System; and the 6 Series MSO mixed signal oscilloscope.
The judges commented: For Anritsu: “This is one of those ‘can’t live without it’ type of products … this will probably become a standard tool for evaluating systems as we move to 5G and ever higher data rates.”
For Keithley: “DMM, Data acquisition, Data logging and analysis in one compact unit, which is an essential tool for testing, quality control and failure analysis of any electrical circuit.”
Congratulations to all of this year’s finalists and winners!
