Keithley upgrades parametric testers to Linux

July 19, 2007 – Keithley Instruments Inc. says it has migrated the embedded control within its S600 Series parametric testers from UNIX to Linux operating systems (Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS Version 4/Update 4), to make them more stable and prolonging service life of the computer. The controller will “operate seamlessly with existing parametric test systems using Solaris, and field upgrades are available for customers “who prefer a 100% Linux test floor, the company noted. New systems (which also come with a new x86-based computer) and upgrades will be available for delivery starting in September.
