  TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Helps Students Acquire Real-World EDA
  Skills with New Licensing Program

Business Wire

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 25, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today launched the Agilent EEsof EDA
Student License Program, designed to provide access to Agilent EEsof EDA
software on students’ personal computers.

With the license, students no longer have to use university lab computers or
log in to a university system to access Agilent EEsof software via Agilent
EEsof license servers. Instead, students can now access Agilent EEsof software
anyplace, anytime on their own computers. Agilent EEsof software available
through the licensing program includes Advanced Design System (ADS),
Electromagnetic Professional (EMPro), Genesys and SystemVue.

The licensing program is open to students attending universities that
participate in the Agilent EEsof EDA University Educational Support Program.
Students can request a license by completing the Student Codeword Request form
at agilent.com/find/eesof-university. Issued licenses will be the same as
those actively supported for the student’s university. If the university has a
supported ADS university donation package, for example, students will receive
ADS licenses. All licenses are valid for 12 months and are for educational
purposes only. They cannot be used for commercial purposes.

These licenses are only being offered in the Americas, Europe (excluding
Russia) and Japan. Specifics about program requirements are available at
agilent.com/find/eesof-university. Interested parties may also contact a local
Agilent EEsof field engineer or Agilent EEsof’s university program manager at
john_kikuchi@agilent.com.

Agilent EEsof EDA University Education Support Program

The new Student License Program is part of Agilent EEsof’s University
Educational Support Program, which offers full versions of Agilent EEsof
software to qualified academic institutions for instructional use. This
software, the same as used in industry, creates a full RF-EDA experience to
help students develop skills that will serve them throughout their careers. A
working knowledge of Agilent EEsof’s design tool capabilities allows students
to enter the workforce with skills valued by industry-leading employers.
Additionally, the software enables professors to encourage student creativity
and students to capture and present that creativity in a form that’s
recognized and trusted in conference papers, presentation and proposals.

The University Support Program features fully operational versions of Agilent
EEsof’s commercial products and is available to qualifying institutions
offering academic instruction in RF and communications system design,
electromagnetic analysis, high-speed digital design and device modeling.
