SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- June 25, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that Millitech Inc., a
leading provider in millimeter-wave components, assemblies and subsystems for
applications in satellite communications, radiometry, radar and remote
sensing, has selected Agilent’s Electromagnetic Professional (EMPro) and
Advanced Design System (ADS) software for use in developing mixers,
multipliers and various passive devices.

Millitech has long used ADS for nonlinear circuit simulation. Its adoption of
EMPro allows the manipulation of parameterized 3-D models directly from the
circuit simulator to further improve design performance.

The integration of ADS and EMPro enables engineers to simultaneously optimize
linear and nonlinear aspects of their designs. This is important when
designing nonlinear devices, such as mixers, where the designer wants to
optimize RF, LO and IF return loss, LO isolation, conversion loss, and image
rejection—all at the same time. This integration also benefits designers of
passive devices, such as filters, splitters, isolators, and antennas. EMPro
allows designers to visualize electromagnetic fields within passive devices to
gain additional insights.

“At millimeter-wave frequencies, the ability to tightly integrate EM and
circuit simulation tools is crucial,” said Chris Koh, engineering vice
president at Millitech. “Agilent’s ADS and EMPro software packages provide us
an integrated design environment that allows us to efficiently optimize
designs for the advanced products our customers require.”

“We are delighted by Millitech’s decision to adopt both the ADS and EMPro
platforms for its mixer, multiplier and passive device development,” said Marc
Petersen, product manager at Agilent EEsof EDA. “The combination of ADS and
EMPro provides the company the flexibility it needs to successfully develop
the most technically advanced millimeter-wave devices.”
