TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies and University of Washington Collaborate to
Build Embedded Systems Teaching Laboratory
SANTA CLARA, Calif. & SEATTLE -- October 24, 2013
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) and the University of Washington today
announced they will work together to upgrade a laboratory in the school’s
Electrical Engineering Department with the industry’s latest electronic test
Agilent will provide a dozen 350-MHz touch-screen digital oscilloscopes with
four analog and 16 digital channels. This collaboration will create a superior
student experience in the university’s Embedded Systems teaching lab.
Courses taught in the Embedded Systems Laboratories provide an environment for
students to learn about and to practice solving the challenging design, debug
and test problems that have become routine in industry.
“The quantity and nature of signals that must be recognized and understood
frequently challenge the equipment used to measure them,” said Jim Peckol,
principal lecturer of the electrical engineering department, University of
Washington. “The state-of-the-art equipment provided by Agilent will afford
the students the opportunity to develop and to greatly enhance the skills they
will need for designing, analyzing and debugging tomorrow’s complex systems
that span both the analog and digital domains.”
The Agilent InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series oscilloscopes are valuable tools for
advanced teaching and instructional laboratories. Students will experience how
Agilent’s industry-leading 1-million-waveforms/sec update rate, segmented
memory and MegaZoom IV smart memory technology provide faster insight into
signal behavior. They will experience better usability of the industry’s
largest capacitive touch display (12.1 inches) and innovative InfiniiScan Zone
touch trigger capability. Additionally, these students can take advantage of
the unique integration of five instruments in one box: oscilloscope, logic
analyzer, serial protocol analyzer, WaveGen 20-MHz dual-channel
function/arbitrary waveform generator and three-digit DVM.
“Agilent is delighted to work with the faculty at the University of
Washington’s electrical engineering department to help establish advanced
learning opportunities for future engineers,” said Bill Wallace, director of
university development at Agilent.
Agilent oscilloscopes are available in a variety of form factors, from 20 MHz
to 90 GHz, offering industry-leading specifications and powerful applications.
