SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 19, 2014

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today introduced BenchVue, its intuitive,
easy-to-use software for the PC that provides multiple-instrument measurement
visibility and data capture with no programming necessary. Enabling easy
viewing, capturing and exporting of measurement data and screen shots, this
no-cost software greatly accelerates testing for engineers and technicians in
design and validation.

“Today’s bench-instrument users demand a faster, simpler way to accomplish
their most common tasks,” said Rod Unverrich, senior program manager at
Agilent. “BenchVue makes this possible with its simple point-and-click and
capture operation, without the need to program. An integrated library feature
further enables users to reduce test setup time through quick access to
helpful manuals, FAQs and videos.”

BenchVue improves the way users interact with their instruments and the entire
bench. Mobile apps even let users monitor and respond to long-running tests
from anywhere. BenchVue’s key features include:

  *Data logging and strip charts for digital multimeters and power supplies;
  *Screen capture with annotation and trace data with preview charts for
    oscilloscopes and spectrum analyzers;
  *Waveform select and output control for function generators;
  *The ability to control and share data across product families and even
    drag and drop waveforms between an oscilloscope and function generator;
  *No programming or instrument drivers required.
