Agilent Technologies Adds New Devices to Chipset Software, Expands Percello’s Femtocell SoC Capabilities

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 18, 2010 -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that its N7309A chipset software now supports RFIC and MxFEs (mixed signal front ends) converters from Analog Devices, including the ADF4602 and AD9963.

The new devices address the high-volume manufacturing test needs of Percello’s Aquilo Femtocell System-on-a-Chip (SoC) product line. The N7309A chipset software delivers rapid calibration and verification testing for the time-to-market/volume requirements of original design manufacturers and contract manufacturers.

“Percello's superior technology, which delivers high-speed, low-power and rich functionality, is now shipping in volumes,” said Yoav Volloch, vice president of Business Development, Percello. “Agilent’s new chipset solution reduces our customers’ risk and uncertainty in manufacturing test when making femtocell design decisions.”

“Agilent’s N7309A chipset software was designed to support the entire Aquilo Femtocell SoC product line,” said Garrett Lees, applications marketing manager at Agilent’s Microwave and Communications Division. “Adding the new chipsets gives engineers more choices in their RF and mixed-signal designs while reducing their overall time-to-manufacturing.”

Agilent N7300 software solutions are supported on the Agilent MXA, EXA signal analyzers and MXG, ESG signal generators and give platform compatibility with Agilent X-series applications and test hardware. Agilent’s consistent X-Series platform utilization -- from design to verification and manufacturing -- protects the customer’s test investment.
