SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- January 15, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced it will demonstrate its
high-speed digital design and test solutions at DesignCon, Jan. 28- 31, at the
Santa Clara Convention Center (Booth 201).

“DesignCon provides an opportunity for Agilent to share our latest experiences
in high-speed digital design solutions and demonstrate a wide range of
essential tools to help engineers design and simulate, analyze, debug and
achieve compliant designs,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general
manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope Products Division.

As the host sponsor of this year’s event, Agilent will demonstrate how to:

  *Obtain faster HDMI and MHL sink compliance test results using the compact
    M8190A arbitrary waveform generator and enhanced N5990A test automation
  *Take advantage of faster simulation and advanced equalization techniques
    using powerful enhancements to Agilent’s N1930B physical layer test system
    (PLTS) 2013 software.
  *Perform bit error rate testing for 100 gigabit Ethernet applications from
    25 to 32 Gb/s using the N4960A Serial BERT and 86100D Infiniium DCA-X
    wide-bandwidth oscilloscope mainframe.
  *Achieve a noise level as much as three times lower than traditional 8-bit
    oscilloscopes with Agilent’s new 12-bit Infiniium 9000 H-Series
    high-definition oscilloscopes.
  *Save time debugging and resolve the most difficult design issues using the
    InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series oscilloscopes, featuring a 1 million
    waveform/s update rate and the industry’s largest display (12.1 inches)
    with touch-screen technology.
  *Build a complete high-speed digital design flow using Agilent’s Advanced
    Design System with DDR4 and 28G as application examples.

Agilent will also host two in-depth educational forums, as well as several
tutorials and technical paper sessions. The forum topics are:

  *Challenges and Solutions in Characterizing a 10-Gb Device (how to set up
    test equipment to optimize jitter measurement accuracy, focusing on
    obtaining a good correlation between sampling and real-time
  *Making DDR4 Work for You (how to meet the challenges with DDR4 designs and
    understand the most sensitive parameters of the channels that need special

The highlights of Agilent’s tutorials and technical paper sessions include:

  *Tips and Advanced Techniques for Characterizing a 28 Gbps Transceiver.
  *Comparison and Contrast of State-of-the-Art Time Domain Reflectometry
    Measurement Instruments.

Panel discussions with technical experts from Agilent include:

  *Understanding Digital Communication Standards: A Look Under the Hood.
  *Enabling the Next Generation of Smartphones and Tablets with UFS: An
    Industry Perspective.
