  TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Ships Newest EMPro Software Release for
  Analyzing 3-D Electromagnetic Effects

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- November 15, 2012

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced shipment of EMPro 2012, its
3-D electromagnetic simulation software.

EMPro 2012 allows designers to more easily create 3-D models and analyze the
electrical performance of packages, connectors, antennas, and other RF and
high-speed components. It delivers a number of critical features for new and
existing EMPro users, including:

  *Enhanced integration between EMPro and Advanced Design System, enabling
    users to save EMPro projects as ADS libraries; availability of 3-D models
    in ADS as schematic and layout views; and availability of parameters
    created in EMPro in ADS for EM sweep/optimization. Additionally, changes
    made in EMPro now dynamically update in ADS.
  *A low-frequency analysis algorithm that enables stable, accurate results
    down to very low frequencies (below100 MHz, including at DC). The
    algorithm also provides accurate DC results for use in higher-frequency
    circuit simulations.
  *Faster Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations (1.4X compared with EMPro
    2011) stemming from technology advancements that increase the robustness
    and speed (two to three times faster) of the FEM mesher.

Currently supported Agilent customers interested in the EMPro 2012
technologies, applications and capabilities should contact their local
applications engineer or field sales person for more information.


EMPro 2012 is now available for download at Application examples
covering a wide range of topics, including packaging, antennas, RF PCBs, RF
modules, connectors and radar applications can be downloaded at
