PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2003--Agilent
Technologies Inc. (NYSE:
A) announced that Wireless Systems Design is
recognizing Agilent's connected solutions with the 2003 Best Wireless
Design Tool award today at the Wireless Systems Design 2003 Conference
and Expo. In addition, Microwaves & RF magazine and EDN Magazine have
recognized Agilent high-speed oscilloscope measurement system tools
and EDA software as top products in 2002.
"Agilent's Advanced Design System, coupled with the company's
Connected Solutions concept, ensures that today's wireless systems
engineers are able to verify design performance earlier in the
development cycle than previously possible," said Cheryl Ajluni,
editor in chief of Wireless Systems Design. "This is possible thanks
to the wide breadth of expertise that Agilent consistently
demonstrates -- an expertise not easily captured by competing
Agilent's new real-time Infiniium oscilloscopes and InfiniiMax
active probe measurement system were chosen by Microwaves & RF for
their "Top Products of 2002" list. EDN Magazine's "Top 100 Products"
of 2002 list included Agilent's Integrated Circuit Characterization
and Analysis Program (IC-CAP) 2002, as well as Agilent's new
high-speed InfiniiMax probes.
"Agilent's new 4 and 6 GHz Infiniium oscilloscopes and InfiniiMax
probes provide design engineers with previously unavailable
measurement bandwidth and accuracy for both single-ended and
differential measurements," said Jack Browne, publisher and
editor-in-chief of Microwaves & RF magazine. "Together, the scopes and
probes offer engineers a practical test solution that surpasses the
capabilities of currently available active probe systems."
"EDN's Top 100 Products represent products that our editors have
seen and discussed during the past year, and which we feel are
especially significant and noteworthy to the electronic design
engineering audience we serve," said Bill Schweber, executive editor
of EDN Magazine.
Agilent connected solutions combine Agilent Advanced Design System
software with Agilent test instrumentation to verify designs earlier
in the design process. Integration of Agilent ADS software and Agilent
test instrumentation provides new measurement-based modeling,
verification and debugging capabilities that help electronic and
wireless communication companies increase productivity, lower
development costs and get products to market faster. More information

The Agilent Infiniium series of 4 to 6 GHz real-time oscilloscopes
offer R&D engineers in the computer, communications and semiconductor
industries four full-bandwidth, 20 GSa/s channels. When these scopes
are paired with the industry's fastest Agilent InfiniiMax active
probes at 3.5 to 7 GHz, the new measurement system delivers
industry-leading performance, accuracy and probing connectivity for
validating and verifying the performance of new high-speed digital
product designs. Additional information on Agilent's new high-speed
measurement system is available at
Agilent's IC-CAP 2002, which supports both Microsoft Windows(R)
and UNIX(R), enables engineers to develop highly accurate DC-to-RF
models with its turnkey parameter extraction modules for industry
standard models. IC-CAP also provides a highly flexible software
platform for instrument control, data management, graphical user
interface, data display and custom model development with IC-CAP
parameter extraction language. More information about IC-CAP 2002 is
