Jay Alexander, VP and GM of Oscilloscope Products Division, joined Agilent (formerly Hewlett-Packard) in 1986 as a Manufacturing and Test Engineer after working on robotics at IBM. Three years later he became Test Engineering Manager for oscilloscopes and logic analyzers. He later moved to oscilloscope R&D as a Software Development Engineer, where he worked on several projects including the design of the original Infiniium user interface. He subsequently served in various R&D management positions, where he played significant roles in establishing and growing the Infiniium, InfiniiVision, and Economy oscilloscope franchises, along with the application-specific solutions business for oscilloscopes. In addition to his R&D roles, Jay spent approximately 5 years in several strategy and marketing positions, including Division Planning Manager, Business Unit Marketing Manager, and Group Strategy and Architecture Manager. Jay earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University and a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from the University of Colorado. He is a licensed Professional Engineer and a Senior Member of IEEE, and holds 24 US patents.
Agilent Technologies Inc. has donated electronic test and measurement equipment valued at more than $200,000 to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs College of Engineering and Applied Science.
