Keysight Technologies Donates $120 Million Gift of Software, Support and Training to Georgia Institute of Technology


Donation Reinforces Commitment to Longstanding Collaborative Relationship

SANTA ROSA, Calif., Dec. 10, 2014

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced the largest in-kind software donation in its longstanding relationship with the Georgia Institute of Technology.

"Georgia Tech is among the best research universities in the world, offering the largest, most diverse electrical and computer engineering program in the United States and regularly turning out the largest number of engineers in America," said Steven W. McLaughlin, professor and the Steve W. Chaddick Chair of Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. "Maintaining that position requires the best teachers and facilities and, increasingly, key partnerships with companies like Keysight. Thanks to Keysight's support, our students will continue to have access to the industry's leading software and hardware tools."

Keysight's latest in-kind donation is valued at approximately $120 million (book value) over three years and will comprise Keysight EEsof EDA software, support and training. The donation is being given as part of the Keysight EEsof EDA University Alliance program. It also includes a tailored, three-year custom license program that provides member companies of ECE's Georgia Electronic Design Center with access to Keysight's EDA solutions.

"We are dedicated to meaningful collaboration with researchers and educators around the world," said Todd Cutler, general manager of Keysight EEsof EDA. "Our latest gift of software products to Georgia Tech continues this tradition. We are proud to partner with Georgia Tech to help its students become industry-ready engineers."

Academic uses of Keysight EDA software will focus on Keysight's Advanced Design System (ADS) and SystemVue solutions. ADS is the world's leading electronic design automation software for RF, microwave and high-speed digital applications, pioneering innovative and commercially successful technologies such as X-parameters* and 3-D electromagnetic simulators. SystemVue is Keysight's premier platform for designing communications systems. It enables system architects and algorithm developers to innovate the physical layer of wireless and aerospace/defense communications systems and provides unique value to RF, DSP and FPGA/ASIC implementers.

Keysight is dedicated to meaningful collaboration with researchers and educators around the world. In the research lab, our 75-year history of innovation continues to enable new breakthroughs in science and technology. In classrooms and teaching labs, our instruments and software offer students experience with the same tools used by our customers in government and industry.
