Pico Technology, based in St Neots, UK are today celebrating being named as winners of

a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s highest accolade for business success. The

award, which has been given during Pico Technology’s 30th anniversary year, for their

achievements in International Trade, recognises their long history of designing PC

Oscilloscopes, PC Data Loggers and Automotive Diagnostics tools and exporting them

around the world.

“It is a real honour to receive this award during the same year we are celebrating 30

years of continuous growth as a Company. This is the second time we have won a

Queen’s Award since our foundation in 1991,” announced Managing Director Alan Tong.

“The company has grown every year since then, contributing to the local and national

economy and employing over 176 people at our offices across the globe. I believe that

this award reflects not only our own success, but also the continuing importance of the

UK’s manufacturing and technology sectors to our country’s prosperity especially

throughout the tough last couple of years during the pandemic. I would like to thank the

team at Pico, our customers and suppliers and our partners worldwide for their

contribution to our story.”

Pico Technology introduced the first PC Oscilloscope 30 years ago. 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 at our UK
