Avnet Electronics Marketing and Agilent Technologies Ink New Distribution Pact


PHOENIX -- Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), and Agilent Technologies (NYSE: A) today announce a distribution agreement. Under terms of the new pact, Avnet will distribute Agilent’s Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMIC) line of millimeter-wave semiconductor products in North America.

Agilent MMICs are small, high-performance and cost-efficient chips that provide an attractive design solution for point-to-point radios, satellite, navigational, automotive radar, global positioning and defense/aerospace system applications - all of which require high-frequency, high-bandwidth, and high-performance active circuits.

’Avnet and Agilent have teamed up to offer the breadth and depth of tools and expertise to meet design engineers’ critical requirements for a variety of high-performance applications,’ said Jeff Ittel, senior vice president of semiconductors for Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. ’RF design engineers are always looking for products that provide consistent, optimal performance and value. This family of millimeter-wave products allows our customers to manufacture systems with products from a single, reliable vendor.’

’We are excited to have Avnet representing our MMIC line of products,’ said Greg Ward, business development manager for Agilent.

’Avnet brings an impressive reach and strong customer relationships in the RF and microwave market. This provides great potential for our expanding line of products.’
