Wilbraham, Mass.Focusing on clock and timing engineering and related measurement science, Amherst Systems Associates, Inc. (ASA) announces a North American kickoff of a program that will aggressively give away premium oscilloscope analysis and productivity software. The company's M1-OT (M1 Oscilloscope Tools) package will go to specifically targeted customers using Agilent and Yokogawa realtime oscilloscopes.
What's The Deal?
ASA's Cirrus Program, named after an experimental cloud seeding program dating back to the 1940's, exposes engineers in North America (and eventually worldwide), to the benefits and cost savings they can realize from M1-OT. It does this by providing a full license at no cost.
M1-OT is an integrated suite of oscilloscope analysis, debug, automation, and productivity tools. The company makes it available with a scalable pricing model at five different price levels ranging from $7995 (for M1-OT Expert) down to $995 (for M1-OT Guide). A scope's performance and cost determine which M1-OT Companion level it's associated with.
Under the Cirrus Program, an engineer that works at an eligible company/organization, and is in the process of purchasing, or has taken delivery within the last 30 days (a moving window) of a new Agilent Technologies realtime oscilloscope that corresponds to the M1-OT Expert product, or a Yokogawa realtime scope that corresponds to the M1-OT Professional product, or a new Agilent 6-GHz or above scope, can receive an M1-OT license at no charge.
You Gotta Believe
"We want engineers and managers to know about this product, and to experience first-hand the impact M1 OT can deliver," says ASA President Michael Williams. "When you purchase an upper tier realtime oscilloscope, the manufacturer's software options can cost as much as $25,000 to $35,000 or more, because of the a la carte pricing strategy used by all of the scope manufacturers. In contrast, M1-OT includes everything, for one price."
Williams notes that M1 supports more of every manufacturer's oscilloscope line than the manufacturer's own tools do. "It includes everything it needs to be virtually every customer's first and only choice to make their RT scope genuinely usable," he says. "M1-OT does more, does it better, and costs less."
Save $25,000 Or More
While Cirrus is running, for many customers it's free, which means they can save $25,000 or more over the native software that M1-OT can replace. "The original Cirrus Project was about changing the weather," says Williams. "Our Cirrus Program is about changing how all engineers use their scopes, and what they pay for them."
ASA's Cirrus Program in North America is on now, and will run through March, 2007. ASA may extend this program to other regions at a later date.
