Danaher owns Tektronix. Danaher test and measurement division owns

    Amprobe
    Arbor Networks
    Fluke
        Comark
        Datapaq
        DH Instruments
        Hart Scientific
        Janos Technology
        Ircon
        Raytek
        Datapaq
    Fluke Networks
        Visual Network Systems Ltd
    Keithley Instruments
    Tektronix
    Tektronix Communications
    VSS Monitoring

This is just a small portion of the companies owned by Danaher.

Electronics companies are started by engineers who understand technology and how to make stuff. The next stage is where they are run by marketing people who know about a market and about customers. The companies end up owned by a bunch of bean counters who don't know how to do anything except make money. They die when the bean counters decide the money is better invested elsewhere.

Wow. 0 for 4. My memory must be defective. I recall several others that didn't make the list, but maybe you should take it with a pinch of salt given my test results.

1. Biomation logic analysers (I still have one)

2. Non Linear Systems (NLS) (I have a DMM)

3. Continental Specialities Corporation (I have a frequency counter and Proto-Board)

4. Leader- It looks like they sell Rigol (I have a scope)

5. I recall a company that started making logic analysers based on a Popular Electronics article. I recall the name Paratronics, but can't find anything on the web, but I did find the PE article.

6. I think Kontron and also Gould had some early logic analysers. Actually I just searched and it looks like Gould acquired Biomation.

7. There must have been several companies that made logic probes. Mine seems to have disappeared in a recent move. Does anybody still use logic probes?

8. Philips (the Dutch conglomerate) made 'scopes for a while. I think the division was bought by Fluke.

9. There was an English 'scope manufacturer called Telequipment bought out by Tektronix in the 1970s IIRC.

10. Whatever happened to Marconi Instruments?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
