Fudan University Selects Agilent's Infiniium 90000A Series Oscilloscopes for its National Microelectronics R+D Lab

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that Fudan University in Shanghai, China , has selected Agilent's award-winning, high-performance, real-time Infiniium 90000A Series oscilloscopes for its National Microelectronics R+D Lab. This purchase marks the beginning of a long-term strategic relationship between Fudan University and Agilent Technologies.

Fudan University's National Microelectronics R&D Lab, which focuses primarily on chipset design, production and test, was looking for a high-bandwidth oscilloscope to complete its testing capabilities. The university chose the Agilent Infiniium 90000 Series oscilloscope because of the scope's superior signal integrity and advanced measurement capabilities. Key in this decision was the oscilloscope's noise floor - the lowest in the industry - which provides greater measurement validity. Also important to university lab managers is the selection of compatible probes and the variety of applications available, including EZJIT Plus software to identify, analyze and time correlate jitter.

Fudan University was especially interested in a scope that would evolve and continue to meet its needs as the lab expands. The Infiniium 90000A Series provides an ideal solution because the availability of after-purchase memory and bandwidth upgrade options, which allow lab managers to upgrade the oscilloscope as their needs change. The Infiniium oscilloscopes can make high-performance measurements now, and can be customized later to meet future measurement requirements.

"We are excited to be working with Agilent," said Professor Min Hao, vice-dean of Fudan University. "We strive to keep our electronics lab up to date with the latest and best equipment. The flexibility of the Agilent 90000A Series oscilloscope offers a lot of options, making it an ideal solution for our labs."

This oscilloscope purchase signifies a commitment to a long-term relationship between Agilent and Fudan University. The university lab allocated its entire 2008 equipment budget to Agilent instruments. The lab now contains both Agilent Infiniium 90000A Series real-time and Agilent InfiniiVision general-purpose oscilloscopes. The lab chose Agilent as the sole supplier of its measurement equipment based on Agilent's ability to offer a complete solution for their measurement needs as well as its ability to offer intensive support for all Agilent products throughout their lifespan at Fudan.

Agilent's complete portfolio of oscilloscopes is available in a variety of form factors, from 20 MHz to 90 GHz, offering industry-leading specifications and powerful applications.

The Agilent Infiniium 90000A Series oscilloscopes were named the Elektra 2008 Design and Test Product of the Year. They have also been chosen as a finalist for the 2008 Design News Golden Mousetrap award and the 2008 EDN Innovation award.
