Tektronix Embedded Instrumentation Group (EIG) was founded in 2009 as Veridae Systems Inc to commercialize research completed at the University of British Columbia. This research was commercialized into products designed to deliver state-of-the-art debug and validation visibility that enables engineers to speed bringing complex SoCs, ASICs and FPGAs from prototype to production. Veridae was purchased by Tektronix on June 30th, 2011. It is now a part of the Tektronix Digital Analysis Product line and remains located in Vancouver, British Columbia.
