April 25, 2023, Montreal, Canada – Introspect Technology, leading manufacturer of test and measurement tools for high-speed digital applications, is proud to unveil the new identity of its award-winning software. Simultaneously launching a brand new user-interface, logo, and name, Introspect Technology’s software now goes by the name: Pinetree.
“Firmly rooted yet completely modernized, Pinetree is a testament to Introspect’s desire to always go above and beyond the status quo,” says Dr. Mohamed Hafed, Chief Executive Officer of Introspect Technology. “With enhanced features, more robust cross-platform capabilities, and a strong focus on test procedure authoring, this new software architecture will make it even more easy for our customers to automate their test and verification activities,” he continues.
Pinetree is an ultra-capable development environment that allows product engineers to easily and seamlessly develop and verify all their high-speed digital and mixed-signal algorithms. Designed for users with widely varying backgrounds and expertise, it offers an extremely intuitive interface simultaneously with infinitely extensible capability. From DC to GHz, and from digital storage to video broadcast, Pinetree is the ideal development environment for the most specialized product engineering teams.
The software’s redesign has resulted in major visual improvements and enhanced code editing capabilities to provide a smoother user experience. Based on an advanced Python interpreter, the following sections describe the main new features of Pinetree.
