SANTA CLARA, CA, Feb. 16, 2011

Agilent Technologies (NYSE: A) today announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Qualcomm for factory test technology.

Under the terms of the agreement, Qualcomm granted Agilent a worldwide license to demonstrate and distribute products that leverage the Qualcomm technology for RF factory testing. The agreement makes Agilent among the first test equipment vendors in the industry to license Qualcomm’s factory test technology.

“There is a natural synergy from working closely on manufacturing optimization with Qualcomm,” said Joe Depond, general manager, Agilent’s Mobile Broadband Organization. “With the recent introduction of Agilent’s EXT Wireless Communications Test Set, and leveraging our N7300A-Series chipset automation platform, we are empowering Qualcomm customers with best-in-class manufacturing test solutions earlier in the product and manufacturing cycle.”
