OKLAHOMA CITY, OK –July 23, 2015-- Oscium's spectrum analyzer has been recognized as a finalist for one of the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year. An independent panel of more than 70 judges selected Oscium’s iPad spectrum analyzer (WiPry-Pro) for the prestigious R&D 100 Award.
WiPry-Pro is significant because it merges the test equipment industry with the smartphone and tablet industries. This approach makes for a 2.4 GHz spectrum analyzer that is uniquely portable, intuitive, and modular. Now wireless troubleshooting can be done on an iPhone or an iPad.
Matt Lee, Founder and Technical Team Lead, has insight into the challenges of developing Oscium’s innovative product set. "All our products are ultra-low power. And since all our products use power from the host device (like an iPad or an iPhone), the impact to battery life is extremely small. We’re proud of this product and love impacting the future of test equipment.”
R&D Magazine Editor Lindsay Hock said that, "This was a particularly strong year for research and development, led by many outstanding technologies that broadened the scope of innovation. We are honored to recognize…these remarkable innovations and their impact...”
The R&D 100 Awards have long been a benchmark of excellence in identifying revolutionary technologies. Since their inception in 1963, the awards have identified many promising technologies that have gone on to become household names. These game-changers include the automated teller machine (1973), the halogen lamp (1974), the fax machine (1975), the liquid crystal display (1980), the Nicoderm anti-smoking patch (1992), Taxol anticancer drug (1993), lab on a chip (1996), HDTV (1998), and Oscium’s iPad oscilloscope (2012).
