Agilent Technologies Inc. announces 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.

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.
