Acqiris Japan to represent Applicos PXI in Japan




HEERDE, the Netherlands, and TOKYO, Japan, – April 17, 2013 – Applicos BV, a developer and manufacturer of mixed-signal test solutions, and Acqiris Japan, a sales office of test- and measurement solutions, this week announced the availability of the Applicos PXI products in Japan through a local distributor.

This partnership brings the flexible PXI solutions of Applicos to the Japanese market, with support from a local sales office.

PXI is a standardized platform for compact modular measurement equipment. It is becoming more and more popular for its modular kind and compact size.

Applicos has been in the PXI market for over 10 years now and is focusing on high signal integrity, flexibility and customer-specific solutions. The addition of Applicos’ PXI products to the Acqiris portfolio fills a gap in for users that require a higher signal integrity and accuracy in the intermediate frequency range. Also, more customers will be able to get in touch with the flexible solutions offered by Applicos.

“Announcing this cooperation with Acqiris Japan is a big step for us. The Japanese market is completely different from the European market, and more difficult to enter for a company from another continent. Now we have the partnership with Acqiris Japan, we can get feedback on how we’re doing for the Japanese customers, allowing us to further improve our products”, said Johannes van der Vegt, PXI sales engineer at Applicos.

“We have 7 years’ experiences as a digitizer supplier in Japan.  We believe we can satisfy customers more with the technologies of Applicos such as high resolution digitizers and generators.  It is also good that Applicos intends to carefully listen to demands from Japanese market, rather than providing the catalogue products.  ”, said Makoto Aikawa, the Marketing Director at Acqiris Japan.

This agreement is part of Applicos’ plan to improve their global network of sales partners, to get a better position on the PXI market.


About Applicos

Applicos is a Dutch-based company that started in 1993 with an instrument for test & analysis of data converters. This is still an important product for us but in the mean time we have developed many other Analog and Mixed-signal products, leveraging our experience and best-in-class designs into other markets.

Almost all of the Applicos employees are electronic engineers working as Mixed-signal designer for many years. This ensures we can handle challenging design tasks quickly and efficiently.  For volume manufacturing we work with external partners so we can stay focused on design and support of our products.

At Applicos we believe that customer satisfaction is the true test of our contribution to the mixed-signal marketplace.  We have done our job when our customers are happy. We will use all of the resources at our disposal to meet this goal.

We started dealing with digitizers of Acqiris SA in Geneva, Switzerland, which we had sold as OEM products of Yokogawa Electric Corporation to the end of March in 2006.  In December 2006, Agilent Technologies Inc., acquired Acqiris SA.  We have been doing unchanged activities before and after the acquisition for 7 years, so that customers in Japan can use them as they do with Japanese products with our support. 

Now we are expanding our activities, carrying other products line upon our capabilities and experiences as measuring instrument experts.
