Tektronix acquires Picosecond Pulse Labs

Tektronix, the test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation company, has announced the acquisition of Picosecond Pulse Labs. The move is intended to strengthen the Tektronix portfolio in the growing market for test equipment to support 100G/400G optical data communications research and development.

Privately-held Picosecond Pulse Labs, based in Boulder, Colorado, offers products that include ultra-high-speed pattern generators, the world’s fastest pulse generators and highest bandwidth sampler modules. The company recently introduced the PatternPro line that includes multi-channel 32 Gb/s data generators and analyzers for 100G/400G applications.

“Picosecond Pulse Labs has a long history of designing and manufacturing cutting-edge instrumentation and brings a particular focus on the high-speed optical test market with its new 32 Gb/s error detectors and pattern generators,” said Amir Aghdaei, president of Tektronix. “When combined with our high-speed oscilloscopes and other product offerings, Picosecond will further strengthen our portfolio of solutions in the critical 100G/400G data communications segment.”
