Keithley is such a famous name in the T&M sector (along with Tektronix and Fluke. I have used instruments from all 3 in the past. I still own what would now be a collector's item, the Tektronix 465 oscilloscope, and it is still in fine operating condition. And, no...I am not in the market to sell it. I guess I am still more atuned to looking at signals in the analog domain even if some of them are digital 1's and 0's. With the proper analog scope, I feel I can see what is going on better, even catching the glitches and noise around digital signal transitions. Nothing beats a really good instrument.

Interesting that two engineering firms in the Test and Measurement world will be under one roof and still be allowed to operate independently in their repsective markets. I hope so. It seems like an ideal business model for established industries.
