They started developing their own product line to show their capabilities. Spectrum produced its first ISA digitizer board in 1991.
Several ISA Data Acquisition cards followed in subsequent years, such as the 400 MS/Sec Arbitrary Waveform Generator card.
In 1996, Spectrum produced the first 12-bit digitizer card for the new PCI bus standard. Many other cards based on the PCI-interface followed. In 2000 and 2001, great changes took place within management and product development. One of the founders, Michael Janz, left the company. Since then, Olivier Rovini, Spectrum’s senior development engineer, holds the position of Technical Manager. The second major step was the development of the MI-series: the first modular PCI cards.
This soon led to a larger assortment of digitizers, D/A and digital I/O cards, all of which are based on the same platform.
In 2004, Spectrum introduced a complete line of CompactPCI and PXI cards. The M2i-series, the successor to the MI-cards, was introduced as well. In the following years, the PCI Express interface format was further developed, resulting in higher sampling rates, higher resolutions, and higher data transfer speeds. These are included in the current M4i-series digitizers, arbitrary function generators, and Netbox (LXI) digitizers.
The product portfolio consists of:
• Digitizers boards (PCI, PCIe, cPCI, PXI)
• Digital I/O boards
• Arbitrary waveform generator boards
• Netbox digitizers
All product development and production takes place in Grosshansdorf, Germany. Spectrum’s philosophy includes the involvement of local suppliers in order to strengthen the region, and ultimately Germany, as a location for this industry.Therefore, ’Made in Germany’ has a special significance within Spectrum. They are particularly proud of their fast, friendly, and comprehensive customer service. The service their employees would also expect from other companies.

I have been doing business with TTMS for years. They offer us good advice, and have a wide range of products to choose from. Before we decide to purchase a product, TTMS allows us to use a demonstration model to experience for a few days whether the product meets our expectations. They think along with us and don't try to sell me just anything. Should it occur, for whatever reason, that there is a defect in the equipment of TTMS, they will follow up with the required service with regard to repair and, if necessary, a replacement. With its service, TTMS invests in a good and lasting customer relationship.
