Oscium today announced it has been named a finalist in the EE Times and EDN 2012 UBM Electronics ACE Awards in the Test & Measurement category. The awards program honors the people and companies behind the technologies and products that are changing the world of electronics.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, March 27 at The Fairmont San Jose, during DESIGN West, a new UBM Electronics conference and expo building on the rich foundation of training, education and products available at ESC, combined with popular summits and new event launches in one venue for the first time.
“I’m so proud of our team,” said Bryan Lee, President at Oscium. “Everyone at Oscium is very honored to be among the finalists for this highly respected award.”
Oscium’s iMSO-104 is the only mixed signal oscilloscope that has been merged into an iPhone, iPad, iPod. Although the interface industry standard is dominated by buttons and knobs, Oscium has introduced a touchscreen interface to the market as an alternative way to navigate the display. Joe Wolin, eeWeb Co-Founder, had this to say about iMSO-104, “so how does this touch interface compare to an oscilloscope with knobs? We actually think the experience is better! The touch-interface of the iPad represents a viable alternative to traditional knob-based oscilloscopes. The software on this device is outstanding… ”
“The new ACE Awards program, presented for the first time by both EE Times and EDN, provides us with an opportunity to recognize the technologies that have made a difference in the way we work, live and play over the past year. We congratulate the finalists on their innovations and leadership in the electronics industry. Additionally, we look forward to our awards ceremony in March to celebrate the innovation, creativity and contributions of the engineering community,” said Junko Yoshida, Editor in Chief, EE Times, UBM Electronics.
