BEAVERTON, OR-Oscilloscope maker Tektronix Inc. donated semiconductor test and measurement equipment to Washington State University Vancouver. WSU Vancouver received arbitrary/function generations, a real-time spectrum analyzer, digital phosphor and mixed signal oscilloscopes, Keithley's semiconductor parameter analyzers and Fluke's True-rms multimeters for its $43.5 million engineering and computer science building.
