  Provide More Performance at Lower Cost

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- April 03, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today introduced enhancements to its
InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes that provide more performance at a
lower cost, making them ideal for educational institutions, manufacturing test
environments and R&D benches.

When the InfiniiVision 2000 and 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes were introduced in
February 2011, they incorporated breakthrough technology that allowed advanced
capabilities at an affordable price. The new capabilities for the
InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series bring more memory—up to 1 M per channel—and a
variety of low-cost serial decoding options for computer and embedded systems
designers, as well as automotive and aerospace manufacturers.

Agilent has launched the new upgrades with a bonus of a five-year factory
warranty (two years longer than the previous warranty).

“The breakthrough technologies and advanced capabilities in the 2000 X-Series
give our customers a way to make excellent oscilloscope measurements
affordably,” said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of
Agilent’s Oscilloscope Products Division. “The additional memory and serial
decoding options for the 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes now give customers with
highly constrained budgets even more flexibility to get their jobs done
faster. And the extended factory warranty further reduces their cost of
ownership.”

The Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X- Series offers bandwidths from 70 MHz to 200
MHz and boasts the fastest waveform update rate in its class for superior
viewing of signal detail and infrequent events.

Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series oscilloscopes enable engineers and
technicians to:

  *See more of their signal more of the time: InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series
    models provide the fastest update rates in their class and an 8.5-inch
    WVGA display, which supplies twice the viewing area of other popular
    scopes.
  *Do more with the power of five instruments in one: In addition to
    best-in-class oscilloscope performance, InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series
    oscilloscopes offer optional integrated MSO capability for time-aligned
    digital and analog signal viewing, an optional integrated function
    generator, a digital voltmeter, and optional hardware-accelerated serial
    protocol analysis.
  *Get more investment protection with upgrade options and a standard
    five-year warranty: The InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series is the only fully
    upgradable (including bandwidth) oscilloscope in its class, so engineers
    and technicians can purchase what they need today and add capabilities as
    their performance needs evolve. Optional measurement software packages add
    functionality, either at time of purchase or as needs arise:

       *Segmented memory for analysis of laser pulses, radar bursts and
         serial packets.
       *Hardware-accelerated mask testing to quickly perform pass/fail
         analysis using known good waveforms.
       *Hardware-accelerated serial decoding and triggering for I²C, SPI,
         CAN, LIN, I²S, and RS-232.
       *Deeper memory, up to 1 M per channel.

Electronic design and test teams in the computer, communications,
semiconductor, aerospace, defense, automotive and wireless industries, among
others, continue to produce increasingly sophisticated hardware. Engineers and
technicians use oscilloscopes as their primary tools to test and debug those
designs. In addition, educators need affordable, industry-grade oscilloscopes
to help prepare the next generation of engineers for success.
