February 17, 2012

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.

WSU will name its radio frequency research laboratory and the basic electronics laboratory for Tektronix through 2016.

“The WSU Vancouver expansion is part of an economic development project to provide additional workforce-ready engineering graduates for companies in the local high-tech cluster. Students will have access to the same state-of-the-art tools as in the electronics industry,” says Dr. Kevin Ilcisin, CTO, Tektronix, noting the growth of high-tech industries across the Pacific Northwest, where WSU is located.


WSU Vancouver received 24 AFG3011 arbitrary/function generators; one RSA3408B real-time spectrum analyzer; one DPO70404C oscilloscope; one DPO 2024 oscilloscopes; one MSO3054 mixed signal oscilloscope,; two Keithley 4200-SCS Semiconductor Parameter Analyzers and three Fluke 87V True-rms Multimeters. In addition, WSU Vancouver purchased 19 more DPO2024 oscilloscopes along with 60 PWS2000 Series DC power supplies, supporting accessories and other equipment.

WSU Vancouver has an enrollment of more than 3,000 students. Learn about the school at vancouver.wsu.edu .
