What happened to Agilent components?

What happened to Agilent components?

What happened to Agilent components?

Did I blink and miss something? I was looking for the Agilent/HP range of pHEMTs and microwave detector diodes and I couldn’t find any components on the Agilent web site. Has this section been sold off or something. I looked at the history page on the Agilent website and the number of employees seems to have been plummeting over the last few years.

RE: What happened to Agilent components?

One interesting note on Agilent, a few years back while at Raytheon, they shipped a test system with over $17K extra hardware options than we ordered.
We told them that and they said "oops, just keep it".
I would guess they had to send someone else another $17K in add ons since we probably got their machine. Ahhh, the shipping department.... maybe someone had just been laid off.

It's still a good company with good products and alot of obsolete products to boot.


RE: What happened to Agilent components?

Yeah, boy.  When you overcharge by a factor of X3 for test equipment, $17K is chump change!

RE: What happened to Agilent components?

Avago ... just rolls of the tongue.

Thanks IRstuff. I will email my colleagues at work so we don't waste time all hunting for the same info!

RE: What happened to Agilent components?

HP change the name for the equpment subsydiary to Agilent so people will not mistake the HP abreviation with High Price LOL
