SANTA CLARA, CAAgilent Technologies today announced that its electronics measurement business unit would be known as Keysight Technologies when it is spun off in November.

Agilent, which announced it would split itself into two separate businesses, said Keysight will concentrate solely on electronics test and measurement. The new company will be headquartered in Santa Rosa, CA, and have approximately 9,500 employees in 30 countries.
 
The name Keysight conveys the ability to see what others cannot, offering the critical or key insights to understand and unlock the changing technology landscape. The new company’s tagline, “unlocking measurement insights for 75 years,” commemorates the 1939 birth of Hewlett-Packard, from which Keysight originated.
 
“Keysight reflects our rich heritage—a direct line from both Hewlett-Packard’s standards of integrity and innovation and Agilent’s premier measurement business,” said Ron Nersesian, president and CEO of Keysight.
 
“This name captures the spirit of our organization—innovative, insightful and forward-looking,” said Nersesian, who added, “While Keysight is built on ‘firsts’ dating back to the birth of Silicon Valley, as a new company we are committed to bringing our customers a new generation of firsts—unlocking insights for them so they can in turn bring a new generation of technologies into the world.”
 
Keysight will be the market share leader in wireless data ecosystem; aerospace and defense; and industrial, computers and semiconductors, Agilent said, and is become a standalone company in early November. The company’s website is www.keysight.com.

Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
