Thousand Oaks, CA, January 6, 2020 – Teledyne Technologies Incorporated announced today that its subsidiary, Teledyne LeCroy, Inc., has acquired OakGate Technology, Inc. ("OakGate"). OakGate, headquartered in Loomis, California, is a leading provider of test, validation, and benchmarking products for the Electronic Storage Industry and Data Centers.
Flash memory controller suppliers, solid state and rotational drive vendors, and storage system OEMs use a broad range of Teledyne LeCroy’s protocol analysis solutions to test and validate their designs.

"Test appliances and services offered from OakGate are a nice fit with our existing protocol test tools, enabling us to offer more complete solutions to the market," said Kevin Prusso, General Manager of Teledyne LeCroy.
OakGate President and Chief Executive Officer, Anil Gupta said, "We're excited to join Teledyne LeCroy as their wide range of storage protocols test solutions will combine well with our system and performance test products, and provide a more comprehensive solution to the benefit of our customers."
