On Thursday the 6th of October, at Pico Technology’s Head Office in St Neots, UK, we had the great honour of receiving the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for a second time. HM Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire Mrs Julie Spence OBE and Deputy Lord-Lieutenant His Honour Neil McKittrick, during a ceremony in front of the employees of Pico Technology, presented the Grant of Appointment to Pico’s Chairman Mark Jones. The award, given for our achievements in International Trade, recognises our long history of designing PC Oscilloscopes, PC Data Loggers and Automotive Diagnostics tools and exporting them around the world.

The ceremony also included civic guests The High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire Mrs Jennifer Crompton, Local Conservative MP Jonathan Djanogly, Mayor of St Neots Ben Pitt and Cllr Stephen Ferguson.

Pico Technology introduced the first PC Oscilloscope 31 years ago, and since then has achieved continuous growth year on year. Traditional oscilloscopes are bulky instruments that occupy a large area on an engineer’s workbench. Our PC‑based products, however, are portable and have brought oscilloscope technology within the budget of a typical personal computer owner. From their simple beginnings, these devices have evolved into a new class of test instruments that we call PicoScopes. Through innovative design, PicoScopes with high-level specifications are available that compare favourably with the most advanced test instruments from the world’s largest manufacturers.

Despite its global reach, Pico Technology has never lost sight of its responsibilities to the local community. We contribute to several UK charities, help to train students every year from nearby colleges, and are currently recruiting for several vacancies.
