Agilent Technologies Inc.
) will demonstrate the latest version of its flagship EMPro 2012
software at European Microwave Week.
Agilent's EMPro 2012 will facilitate the designing of 3-D
models by analyzing the electrical performance of radio frequency
(RF) and other high-speed components. The latest EMPro coupled
with Agilent's Advanced Design System (ADS) software has the
capabilities to improve performance and accelerate product
development with the help of 3-D modeling.
Aerospace/Defense industry engineers and designers of antenna,
high-speed connector, RF & microwave component, IC package
and others use the EMPro 2012 software for analyzing the 3D
electromagnetic (EM) effects of components such as RF IC
packages, antennas, on-chip and off-chip embedded passives and
printed circuit board (PCB) interconnects.
) has selected Agilent's EMPro 2012 software to develop their ESD

There is ample room for growth if Agilent plays to its
strength 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.
Agilent's revenue in the third quarter was flat sequentially
and up 1.9% year over year, short of management's expectations of
a 2-3% sequential increase ($1.77 billion to $1.79 billion). The
Electronic Measurement segment contributed 49.0% of revenue. The
weakness was on the computing/semiconductor side of the
The Life Sciences segment generated 23.0% of revenue, down
1.0% sequentially and up 2.1% from last year. The Chemical
Analysis segment generated 22.0% of third quarter revenue, down
8.8% sequentially and 7.0% year over year. The sequential decline
was largely because of weakness in food testing.
Currently, Agilent Technologies has a Zacks #4 Rank, implying
a short-term Sell rating.
