 Agilent Technologies Donates $13 Million in EDA Software to
Georgia Electronic Design Center

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A - News) today announced an agreement to provide Agilent EDA software, support and training, totaling $13 million, to a new hub of the Georgia Electronic Design Center (GEDC) in Atlanta. The new Agilent EDA Simulation Center will facilitate RF and microwave-system and circuit-design instruction and research for students, and serve as a catalyst for start-up companies involved in wireless communications design. The venture, sponsored by the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), is expected to be fully operational by year's end.

"Agilent's EDA tools help us continue to advance wireless technology and support our students, as well as to encourage and support start-up companies," said Joy Laskar, director of GEDC. "We also want to contribute to the success of other academic and non-profit institutions through sharing our experience in this partnership. We are making plans to release large portions of work using the Agilent EEsof EDA platforms for academic use."

The agreement demonstrates a significant expansion of the long-standing relationship between Georgia Tech and Agilent. This agreement is part of the newly created Agilent EEsof EDA University Alliance program, which includes a tailored, three-year custom license program to provide access to the complete line of Agilent EEsof EDA tools to start-up companies. Agilent also plans to offer customer training at the GEDC's Agilent EDA Simulation Center.

"This is one of the largest academic donations of Agilent EEsof products to a single institution," said Jim McGillivary, vice president and general manager with Agilent's EEsof EDA division. "We realize that universities and start-up incubator programs play a crucial role in pushing the limits of EDA tools, and Agilent's EDA offering needs to be integrated and lead simulation technology in all areas. The energy, enthusiasm and drive within this program is really exciting for all of us."

Academic uses of the Agilent EEsof Simulation Center at GEDC will focus on Agilent EEsof's Advanced Design System (ADS), the 3-D Electromagnetic Design System (EMDS) 3-D EM simulator and the AMDS simulator that incorporates antenna EM simulation technology recently acquired by Agilent. The center will also be the world's largest academic installation of Agilent's Golden Gate simulator in a parallel processor environment. Golden Gate offers the ability to simulate complex CMOS RFIC designs, including complete network parasitic elements, in production scale SOC implementations. Initial plans include a 60 parallel core configuration.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the EDA Simulation Center at the GEDC in Atlanta is planned for Oct. 30 at 4:30 p.m. ET. The event will take place at the Technology Square Research Building, located at 85 5th Street, on the Georgia Tech campus.

Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
