THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Teledyne LeCroy, a
subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, today demonstrated the
world's first 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope by successfully acquiring and
displaying live signals at 100 GHz bandwidth. This demonstrated performance
dramatically exceeds currently available capabilities. High speed
oscilloscopes are vital tools in the development of high-speed digital
networks, the critical backbone of the rapidly expanding cloud-based computing
paradigm that characterizes our digital age.

"Reaching 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope performance is one of many industry
milestones achieved by Teledyne LeCroy," said Tom Reslewic, chief executive
officer, Teledyne environmental and electronic measurement instrumentation.
"It reveals new phenomena, opens channels for new discoveries and paves the
way for vast improvements in the field of high speed measurement."

The demonstration was conducted at the research facilities of Teledyne
Scientific Company in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Teledyne LeCroy and Teledyne
Scientific also announced today they have completed the design of a jointly
developed next-generation indium phosphide (InP) chip and have released the
design for fabrication at Teledyne Scientific's InP foundry. The jointly
developed chip is the first device in an expansive chip set planned for future
generations of high speed oscilloscopes. Teledyne acquired LeCroy Corporation
in August 2012 and has pursued synergies related to the development of ultra
high speed oscilloscopes.

"We are pleased to see the 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope milestone reached
less than one year after the acquisition of Teledyne LeCroy," said Robert
Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne.
"Releasing the new InP chip in collaboration with Teledyne Scientific on the
very same day illustrates the breadth of our technology expertise, and our
commitment to taking high performance oscilloscopes to the next level."

InP is an advanced semiconductor process that promises higher speed devices
than can be designed in other known processes. Teledyne is a leader in next
generation InP technology, with advanced design and production capabilities
currently in place.
