SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 24, 2012

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that OSAT Company, which specializes in engineering analysis, testing and inspection techniques, is using Agilent's Electromagnetic Professional software, EMPro, and the Momentum 3-D planar electromagnetic simulator to design and simulate innovative new antennas and circuits.

EMPro is a 3-D modeling and simulation platform. Tightly integrated with Agilent's Advanced Design System software, EMPro is used to create 3-D models and analyze the electrical performance of packages, connectors, antennas and other RF components. Momentum is the leading 3-D planar EM simulator used for passive circuit modeling and analysis. Accurate EM simulation enables designers to improve the performance of their designs, while increasing confidence that the manufactured product will meet specifications. Momentum is integrated with both ADS and Genesys RF and microwave design software, as well as third-party tools.

"Designing cutting-edge circuits and antennas requires access to the industry's most advanced modeling and simulation tools," said Alexandre Vouzellaud, chief operating officer at OSAT. "The speed, performance and flexible features of Agilent's EMPro and Momentum software are providing our R&D department with the functionality we need to maintain a leading edge in the highly competitive wireless, microwave and millimeter-wave markets in which we compete."

"We are pleased that OSAT selected EMPro and Momentum for the development of its next-generation circuits and antennas," said Todd Cutler, general manager in the Agilent EEsof EDA organization. "The accuracy, speed and capacity of our software are enabling them to bring quality products to market ahead of the competition."
