National Instruments and Tektronix have extended their more than 20-year relationship developing new products.
The co-developed products are slated to improve productivity and lower costs for engineers and scientists working in design verification, manufacturing test, scientific research, and embedded test.
The two companies will unveil specific details at NIWeek 2009 scheduled for Aug. 4"6 in Austin, Texas.
Tektronix and National Instruments have collaborated on a series of initiatives focused on ensuring strong integration and interoperability between the companies' respective products.
In 2003, the companies worked together to increase the integration of LabVIEW and Tektronix instruments by providing LabVIEW on Tektronix open Windows oscilloscopes.
In 2006, they introduced LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition and released TekExpress.
"This collaboration brings together two leading brands with one goal of enabling our joint customers to innovate and bring products to market faster," said Martyn Etherington, Vice President of Marketing for Tektronix, in a statement.
"Both National Instruments and Tektronix serve a very large base of customers, and universally, those customers are telling us they want new approaches for optimizing their automated test systems," said Eric Starkloff, Vice President of Product Marketing for Test at National Instruments.
