Agilent Technologies and MindShare to Provide Best-in-Class Technology Training for R&D Engineers in Computer and Storage Industry


Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and MindShare Inc., a technical training provider and technical book authoring company for high-tech companies, today announced an agreement to jointly provide training classes for hardware and software development engineers.

By using screen captures of Agilent protocol analyzers, logic analyzers and oscilloscopes, the theory-based teaching experience will be augmented and enhanced with practical examples illustrating the nature and challenges of a variety of technologies. The open enrollment and customized classes offer students the opportunity to expand their knowledge of a particular technology while seeing test tools in action, thus addressing and overcoming the complexities of the technology. Students will use Agilent test and debug tools to learn how to put theoretical elements of the training into practice.

“With support for the PCI Express(r) technology from members like Agilent and Mindshare, PCI-SIG continues to help enable PCIe(r) for the entire industry,” said Al Yanes, PCI-SIG chairman and president. “By working with Agilent, MindShare will be able to enhance its training courses and students will benefit from a more complete training experience. This leads to new products based on PCIe getting more quickly and efficiently to market.”

Agilent and MindShare will begin this collaboration by hosting open-enrollment MindShare training for PCI Express at the Agilent Santa Clara, Calif., site July 17-20 and Sept. 10-13.

“These joint training classes help us support our customers, quickly getting them up to speed on complex and leading-edge technologies,” said Siegfried Gross, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Digital Verification Solutions Division. “The scheduled PCI Express seminars will help design engineers understand and implement the latest specification, PCI Express 2.0, and get the best of both worlds: training expertise in PCI Express technology from MindShare plus experience with industry-leading PCI Express test tools from Agilent.”
