announced that its Electromagnetic Professional (EMPro) and
Advanced Design System (ADS) software have been selected by
Millitech Inc. for the development of mixers, multipliers and
various other passive devices.
Millitech Inc. is a part of Smiths Microwave. It is one of the
leading providers of components, sub-assemblies, antennas and
systems solutions to the defense and aerospace industry.
Agilent's ADS is an automatic electronic design software
system used by designers of RF electronic products such as mobile
phones, pagers, wireless networks, satellite communications,
navigation and radar systems and high-speed data links.
Taken together, EMPro and ADS can improve performance and
accelerate product development with the help of 3-D modeling. The
combination of ADS and EMPro software will help Millitech improve
the design environment at millimeter-wave frequencies, thereby
facilitating more accurate and advanced products.
There is ample room for growth if Agilent plays to its
strengths and remains committed to its customers by providing
world class, affordable test and measurement solutions. Agilent's
testing systems have proved to be effective in the past, enabling
it to build a strong position for itself. The electronic
measurement segment has been improving over the last few quarters
as Agilent's new products have been successful.

Measurement segment remained the largest contributor and
