Agilent Technologiesí Announces Express Configurations for Signal Analyzers, Signal Generators


New Configurations Address Industry Need for Exceptional Value, Faster Delivery

SANTA CLARA, Calif., --

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today introduced express configurations for the popular CXA/EXA signal analyzers and MXG signal generators. Express configuration products provide fast, off-the-shelf delivery of the most popular test and measurement configurations. This service ensures that test equipment is shipped as fast as possible to customersí research and development and manufacturing lines, ready for immediate use, saving time, effort and expense.

Express configuration solutions are preconfigured, functionally identical versions of Agilentís custom-configurable products. They offer the same specifications, upgradeability and remote instrument identification over SCPI as their custom counterparts. Express configurations offer value pricing for the most commonly ordered features. All instrument options are license-key enabled, ensuring even greater usability and ease of delivery.

ďTodayís R&D and manufacturing engineers face significant challenges, not the least of which is getting faster access to the required test and measurement equipment,Ē said Guy S�n�, vice president and general manager of Agilentís Microwave and Communications Division. ďAgilentís new express configuration products are a direct response to this industry challenge. With their streamlined configurations and off-the-shelf delivery, these products ensure our customers get what they need as fast as possible.Ē

Agilentís new express configurations instruments today include:

* Agilentís MXG RF analog signal generator express configuration (100 kHz to 1, 3, or 6 GHz) is optimized for component design and production verification. It features scalable RF performance, high reliability, easy self maintenance and high power -- all in two rack units (2RU) to maximize uptime and save rack space.
* Agilentís MXG MW analog signal generator express configuration (100 kHz to 20 GHz) is optimized for broadband component manufacturing. Its small size (2RU) uses less rack space. Excellent power and level accuracy make the MXG MW express configuration a reliable stimulus for driving high-power devices.
* Agilentís CXA signal analyzer express configuration (9 kHz to 3 or 7.5 GHz) features standards-based one-button measurements such as channel power, OBW and ACP. A versatile, low-cost tool for essential signal characterization, the CXA helps accelerate product testing and development on multiple levels: cost reduction, throughput, design enhancement and beyond.
* Agilentís EXA signal analyzer express configuration (9 kHz to 3.6, 7.0, 13.6 or 26.5 GHz) provides engineers with the fastest means of maximizing throughput on the production line and reducing overall testing costs. It operates with 10 MHz of analysis bandwidth and is up to 300 percent faster than other economy-class spectrum and signal analyzers.
