TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies And University Of Washington Collaborate To Build Embedded Systems Teaching Laboratory

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and the University of Washington today announced they will work together to upgrade a laboratory in the school’s Electrical Engineering Department with the industry’s latest electronic test equipment.

Agilent will provide a dozen 350-MHz touch-screen digital oscilloscopes with four analog and 16 digital channels. This collaboration will create a superior student experience in the university’s Embedded Systems teaching lab.

Courses taught in the Embedded Systems Laboratories provide an environment for students to learn about and to practice solving the challenging design, debug and test problems that have become routine in industry.

“The quantity and nature of signals that must be recognized and understood frequently challenge the equipment used to measure them,” said Jim Peckol, principal lecturer of the electrical engineering department, University of Washington. “The state-of-the-art equipment provided by Agilent will afford the students the opportunity to develop and to greatly enhance the skills they will need for designing, analyzing and debugging tomorrow’s complex systems that span both the analog and digital domains.”

The Agilent InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series oscilloscopes are valuable tools for advanced teaching and instructional laboratories. Students will experience how Agilent’s industry-leading 1-million-waveforms/sec update rate, segmented memory and MegaZoom IV smart memory technology provide faster insight into signal behavior. They will experience better usability of the industry’s largest capacitive touch display (12.1 inches) and innovative InfiniiScan Zone touch trigger capability. Additionally, these students can take advantage of the unique integration of five instruments in one box: oscilloscope, logic analyzer, serial protocol analyzer, WaveGen 20-MHz dual-channel function/arbitrary waveform generator and three-digit DVM.

“Agilent is delighted to work with the faculty at the University of Washington’s electrical engineering department to help establish advanced learning opportunities for future engineers,” said Bill Wallace, director of university development at Agilent.

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