Agilent Expands Tester Portfolio

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced its entry in the optical connectors manufacturers market with the introduction of four new return-loss modules with integrated FP laser source. This move will allow Agilent to strengthen its position in the passive component test market, where the connector segment is forecast to see a 140 percent growth by the year 20041, and to broaden its product offering to existing and potential customers.

The Agilent 81611A, 81612A, 81613A and 81614A return-loss modules all boast the same features as the 81610A for the general passive component test market and are therefore ideal to test fast telecommunication systems such as filters, multiplexers, cross-connects, amplifiers and entire systems in both research and development and production environments. In addition, these new modules feature a connector that enables users to attach an external light source such as fixed, tunable or DFB laser sources.
