Industry’s first graphical sampling multimeter, the DMM7510, features 7½ digit resolution, waveform capture and a touch user interface.

Tektronix, a provider of measurement solutions, has announced that its Keithley DMM7510 Graphical Sampling Multimeter was named a winner in the 2016 UBM Americas ACE (Annual Creativity in Electronics) Awards in the Test and Measurement category. The awards program recognises the people and companies behind the technologies and products that are changing the world of electronics.

“The DMM7510 is the industry’s first graphical sampling multimeter and winning this prestigious award is another indication of the impact this breakthrough instrument is having on the industry today,” said Mike Flaherty, general manager, Keithley product line at Tektronix. “The DMM7510’s combination of high performance and high ease of use gives our customers unparalleled insight into test results.”

The DMM7510 7½-Digit Graphical Sampling Multimeter is the first of a new class of digital multimeters. It integrates a high accuracy digital multimeter, a digitizer for waveform capture, and a capacitive touchscreen user interface. The DMM7510 offers 1pA sensitivity, fast 1MHz sampling and can store over 27 million readings.

With this performance, the DMM7510 is suited for applications such as profiling the power consumption of battery-operated products in IoT devices, implantable medical devices and fitness monitoring devices. The DMM7510 can measure both ultra-low sleep modes and capture complex load current bursts enabling design and test engineers to fully characterize and test the power consumed in all of a device’s operating states.

The DMM7510’s user interface continues Keithley’s touch-test-invent design philosophy that lets users learn faster, work smarter and invent easier. Exploring waveforms with pinch and zoom, for instance, helps users quickly uncover deep measurement insights.

“We’re excited to honor this robust group for their dedication to their craft and efforts in bettering the industry for years to come,” said Nina Brown, VP Events, UBM Americas. “The judging panel was given the difficult task of selecting winners from an incredibly talented group of finalists and we’d like to thank all of those participants for their amazing work and also honor their achievements.”
