Company Fact Sheet
||Keithley, a Tektronix company, provides a greater measure of confidence to customers around the world by designing solutions for their test and measurement needs. By building from its strength in electrical measurement solutions for research, Keithley has become a production test technology leader through working partnerships with leaders in fields where the pace of innovation and change is very fast, such as global communications, semiconductors, and components manufacturing. More information is available at www.keithley.co.uk/.|
||Keithley products are sold in more than 80 countries including Belgium, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United States.|
||Keithley products encompass a broad line of test and measurement solutions for engineers and scientists throughout the world in dozens of disciplines. Keithley products include highly accurate instruments and data acquisition products that measure low levels of voltage, resistance, current, capacitance, and charge, along with complete system solutions for high volume production and assembly testing.|
Keithley solutions address several primary markets:
Precision Electronics - high throughput solutions for component testing, encompassing the entire spectrum of control, connect, and source-measure instrumentation. Keithley instruments are used from the initial production steps through final quality assurance tests and parts binning on diodes, transistors, resistors, capacitors, sensors, and other electronic components.
Research/Education - scientific solutions that provide highly accurate, low level measurements for research into superconductivity, metals, polymers, insulators, and semiconductors.
Semiconductor - for device characterization and monitoring semiconductor wafer processing, including Automated Parametric Test systems, Wafer Level Reliability systems, and I-V/C-V test systems.
Wireless - fully integrated products for testing telecommunications devices, such as cellular phones, pagers, and digital switch systems used in product design, production, and QA/QC labs.
||For well over half a century, Keithley has consistently led the industry in developing test and measurement solutions for emerging measurement needs. From its early days pioneering DC electrical measurement techniques for post-World War II lab researchers to today's solutions for advanced semiconductors, wireless, and nanotechnology applications, Keithley test instruments have built a worldwide reputation among engineers and scientists for advanced electrical measurement performance.|
As the world's demand for semiconductors, cell phones, portable wireless devices, and consumer electronics continues to grow, the Keithley measurement portfolio has expanded beyond sensitive DC instruments to include pulse measurement techniques and AC test equipment. Its products today are used in settings far beyond the research lab, though that remains a core strength of Keithley products. Keithley measurement tools are as vital on the designer's bench as on the production floor for high-volume automated test applications. The ability of Keithley solutions to make even the most demanding, low-level measurements with precision enables Keithley customers to improve their products and processes and to accelerate their R&D and time-to-market cycles.
Keithley products today are sold in more than 80 countries around the world, garnering industry accolades for new test and measurement technologies, including numerous R&D 100 Awards, as well as honors from industry publications such as Semiconductor International, Solid State Technology, Electronic Products, Test & Measurement World, and Electronics Manufacturing Asia, among others.
In 2010, Keithley Instruments joined Tektronix as part of its test and measurement portfolio.
