Agilent Technologies' LXI-Based Oscilloscopes Make Industry Magazine's Annual Top-Products List
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2007 -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it has received an award for innovation from Mesures magazine, a Paris-based monthly that reports on instrumentation and industrial automation. In its 12th annual Palmarès Technologique awards, Mesures highlighted Agilent's 6000L Series low-profile oscilloscopes, which are based on the LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation (LXI) standard and are optimized for use in test systems. Every year, Mesures editors identify the top products featured in the publication, with an emphasis on innovative new products. Describing why Agilent's 6000L Series oscilloscope was chosen, Mesures cited the scope's extremely compact design and the absence of extraneous features. Mesures' French-language article about its list of top products is available on the Web at www.mesures.com/palmares.php
. Last year, Mesures honored Agilent's series of six LXI-based microwave instruments with a Palmarès Technologique award. These modular instruments were the first to comply with the Class A LXI standard, which is the most demanding in terms of synchronization and triggering. "Agilent is honored to accept the award from Mesures," said Jay Alexander, vice president of Agilent's Design Validation Division. "This second award is another sign that LXI is reaching critical mass, and that momentum for this standard is growing worldwide." The Agilent 6000L Series digital storage oscilloscopes (DSOs) offer four channels of measurements in a compact, rack-mountable 1U-high form factor, giving engineers the industry's most space-efficient way to integrate oscilloscopes into their automated test systems. Engineers building design verification and functional test systems can easily do fast test setup and reduce test execution time by controlling the instrument via LAN, GPIB or the Web. Offered at the lowest price for the performance, the 6000L Series provides superior value in the automated test market.
