Tektronix Releases Results Of Its Global Engineer Survey 2021


To keep pace with rapid advancements in technology, today's test and measurement engineers seek longer lasting products and more technical support, according to a global survey of nearly 1,300 professional test and measurement engineers conducted by Tektronix. Designed to provide greater insight into the technologies, challenges and opportunities faced by engineers, the results showed what engineers want and need from test and measurement manufacturers, and the quality and attributes they demand from their instruments.

Long Instrument Lifetime & Greater Reliability

Engineers want a long lifetime from their instruments, according to the survey conducted between April and May 2021. Over a third of respondents (approximately 36%) expect equipment to last more than ten years, while around one fifth (roughly 21%) demand a lifetime of more than five years, backing up findings that engineers place a high value on instrument reliability.

Engineer respondents say they want to protect their investment and get continued value from their purchase, which is in-line with organizations offering continuous service and technical support. Tektronix offers various warranty lengths by product type. Calibration and repair support for each product typically continues for a minimum of five years after production ends.

Technical Support

When asked about the services they value the most, the technical support offered by a vendor came out on top (cited by 72 %of respondents).

Tektronix strives to support engineers' needs by offering new ways of working, including remote control capabilities such as our TekScope™ and TekDrive™, which enable cloud based software defined engineering, that have grown significantly in importance over the last 18 months. Highly appreciated by Tektronix's customers is also the provision of support through a dedicated technical Pan-European support team; as well as a European multilingual ‘Center of Excellence' (CoE) team. Solutions such as virtual online product demonstrations have been very popular with our customers throughout the pandemic.

Other key factors that survey participants said they value from their vendors included:

· good user manuals (69%),

· good supply of accessories and probes (50%), and

· applications' notes (43%).

Post-Sales Support

Post-sales support such as calibration, repair and training were also mentioned as of significant value to today's engineers. Tektronix has the world's most comprehensive network of repair and calibration services for any brand of test and measurement equipment and also offers asset management and factory service plans. Tektronix also provides extensive online training resources, including application notes, training videos and webinars.

“We thank all the 1,300 engineers that answered to this survey to help us improve. The findings enable us to continue building on our unique 75-year heritage to support engineers across multiple applications around the world. We will continue investing in reliability, high quality products and extended services to meet our customer's requirements “, says Maria Heriz, Vice President EMEAI, Tektronix.

AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
