BEAVERTON, Ore., Jan. 22, 2014 — Tektronix Inc., a provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, has acquired Picosecond Pulse Labs of Boulder, Colo., in a move to strengthen its portfolio of test equipment supporting research and development of 100G/400G optical data communications.

The transaction brings to Tektronix the new PatternPro line, which includes multichannel 32-Gb/s data generators and analyzers for 100G/400G applications; other products include ultrahigh-speed pattern generators, pulse generators and high-bandwidth sampler modules.
