In aerospace and defense, Agilent products are used in the design and test state-of-the-art electronic systems, such as sophisticated avionics, radar, communication, satellite, surveillance and GPS systems. The company's products are used across the development lifecycle of computers and semiconductors, from parametric test of semiconductor wafers, to functional and production testing of printed circuit boards, to the final testing of computer systems to ensure proper performance. Designers of high-speed digital devices use Agilent products to achieve the performance limits for the latest electronic requirements while ensuring interoperability and conformance with industry standards.
For the general-purpose electronics market, Agilent instruments accelerate far-reaching applications, from testing alternative sources of energy, to automotive electronics, to power management, to introducing future engineers and scientists in academia to fundamental electronic principles.
