Earlier this year, we entered the Expert I/O 1000 in the 2009 Design News Golden Mousetrap contest. Today, we are proud to announce that it was selected as a finalist in the Test & Measurement category. It’s a great honor to be standing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Agilent, National Instruments and ABB who also attained top positions in the same category.
For more than two decades, the Design News Awards Program has recognized engineering innovation and creativity in product design. This year, Golden Mousetrap awards were given in four major categories: Electronics, Motion Control/Automation, Hardware/Software, Materials/Fastening/Joining/Assembly, and 20 subcategories. Design News gathered a record number of entries, distributing them to their beat editors for judging. Based on the editors’ expertise in each technology area, 71 finalists and 23 winners were selected.
“Design News congratulates the winners and finalists of the 2009 Golden Mousetrap Awards for the great work they’ve done to develop new and innovative products for design engineers,” said Design News Editor-in-Chief Karen Field. “These products showcase the highly imaginative ways that today’s engineers are ‘building a better mousetrap,’ and we thank them for their contributions.”
