National Instruments has acquired the operating assets of Measurement Computing Corporation, a pioneer and leader in low-cost data acquisition boards for ISA, PCI and USB personal computer interfaces. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Measurement Computing, as a wholly owned NI subsidiary, will continue to run its operation as is out of Middleboro, Massachusetts, and to sell and support its products through its existing channels, including Adept Scientific in the United Kingdom.
“The acquisition of Measurement Computing is another step in NI’s long history of providing very high value-added alternatives to traditional instrumentation,” said Dr. James Truchard, National Instruments CEO and cofounder.
“Measurement Computing has been a pioneer and leader in low-cost data acquisition, and our products are already supported by the industry-leading NI LabVIEW software,” added Ben Bailey, Measurement Computing CEO and founder. “Now our products will benefit from a leading, global organisation.”
Commenting on the acquisition, Roger Bilder, Adept Scientific’s Marketing Director, said “This acquisition certainly strengthens both National Instruments and Measurement Computing. From the customer’s point of view, however, it is very much business as usual. Measurement Computing assures us that they retain their commitment to total customer satisfaction, relentless cost control and aggressively low pricing.
“Measurement Computing will continue to operate as an independent business unit, and we remain their partner in the UK and carry on supplying and supporting their broad range of high-quality, affordable hardware and software for PC measurement and data acquisition.”
