  TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies to Demonstrate Newest Microwave and RF
  Design and Test Solutions at European Microwave Week

Business Wire

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- October 17, 2012

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it will show its newest
microwave and RF design, test and measurement solutions for the aerospace,
defense, research, education, communications, transportation and medical
markets at European Microwave Week (Booth 114), Oct. 29- 31, at the RAI
convention center in Amsterdam.

As a nine-year platinum sponsor of European Microwave Week, Agilent will also
host the event’s welcome reception on Oct. 30 and will offer a comprehensive
series of workshops and technical programs.

Demonstrations will include:

How to carry precision into the field using Agilent’s FieldFox handheld
microwave analyzers. Fourteen new models deliver benchtop accuracy and
MIL-spec durability for on-the-go applications such as full two-port
S-parameters, return loss, VSWR and spectrum-interference monitoring at
26.5GHz. The compact 3.0 kg, FieldFox can be configured for cable-and-antenna
analysis, spectrum analysis, vector network analysis, or all-in-one capability
with frequency coverage from 4, 6.5, 9, 14, 18 or 26.5 GHz. The N934xC family
of handheld spectrum analyzers includes new capabilities that enhance
versatility for in-field applications such as instrument remote control and
peak power measurement of pulsed signals.

How to measure linear and nonlinear measurements from RF to millimeter wave
with a single instrument using Agilent’s PNA-X vector network analyzer. The
PNA-X offers the widest range of measurement applications and includes
S-parameters, noise figure, intermodulation distortion and more. Learn how to
deliver fast, accurate, nonlinear behavioral models with Agilent’s 67-GHz
Nonlinear Vector Analyzer (NVNA) and X-Parameters* generated from the NVNA or
Agilent’s Advanced Design System.

How to enable true performance with the X-Series of signal generators and
analyzers. Agilent’s X-Series signal generators include the top-of-the-line
MXG and the cost-effective EXG. Visitors will see how to simplify signal
creation with Signal Studio software, covering technologies such as
LTE-Advanced, MSR, 802.11ac WLAN, GNSS and more. They will also be able to
experience the Agilent N9030A PXA and N9010A EXAsignal analyzers, along with
smart mixers to extend operating frequencies up to 110 GHz for millimeter-wave
applications. Solutions partner Virginia Diodes, Inc., will also be on hand to
demonstrate an offering that goes beyond 110 GHz and is compatible with
Agilent’s X-Series signal analyzers. Agilent’s N9000A CXA X-Series signal
analyzer will show its new extended frequency options, which include 13.6 and
26.5 GHz. The CXA is aversatile, low-cost tool for essential measurements,
provides best-in-class performance and measurement speed, and includes a
full-band preamplifier. It is well-suited for general-purpose microwave
component manufacturing, low-cost microwave R&D design verification, cellular
wireless bench repair, research labs and military radar maintenance. Agilent
will show the PXA signal analyzer as a broadband down converter using 89600
VSA software to demodulate and analyze wideband radar and communications

How to gain easier access to full 3-D electromagnetic modeling capabilities
using EMPro 2012. The latest release now includes a new level of integration
with Advanced Design System 2012 software, along with several simulator
enhancements to improve performance and accelerate product development. Its
direct integration streamlines the design process.

How to take full advantage of the world’s fastest PXI vector signal generator,
the Agilent M9381A. This 6-GHz instrument enhances testing and validation with
switching as fast as 10 µs with excellent RF parametric performance: high
output power, superior level accuracy and 160-MHz modulation bandwidth. The
M9381A is designed for applications such as testing and validating the design
of wireless power amplifiers and transceivers, public-safety systems, military
radios, and cellular base stations, primarily picocell and femtocell.

How to harness the power of Agilent AXIe instruments with cutting-edge
solutions in a flexible and compact form factor. Agilent will demonstrate AXIe
stimulus and response modules, the M9703A 12-bit high-speed digitizer and the
M8190A 12/14-bit wide-bandwidth arbitrary waveform generator. This AXIe system
generates and analyzes wideband signals for high-channel-count and
multi-antenna applications such as radar, direction-finding and satellite

Agilent will showcase other general-purpose instrumentation, including peak
power measurement solutions such as  the Agilent 8990B, a peak power analyzer
that offers faster measurements and greater accuracy in peak power-pulse
analysis for the aerospace, defense and wireless markets.

Agilent will also host several technology partners at the show, showcasing
antenna, probing, load pull and noise parameter applications. For additional
