Agilent Technologies Inc. (A - Analyst Report) will demonstrate the latest version of its flagship EMPro 2012 software at European Microwave Week.

Agilent’s EMPro 2012 will facilitate the designing of 3-D models by analyzing the electrical performance of radio frequency (RF) and other high-speed components. The latest EMPro coupled with Agilent’s Advanced Design System (ADS) software has the capabilities to improve performance and accelerate product development with the help of 3-D modeling.

Aerospace/Defense industry engineers and designers of antenna, high-speed connector, RF & microwave component, IC package and others use the EMPro 2012 software for analyzing the 3D electromagnetic (EM) effects of components such as RF IC packages, antennas, on-chip and off-chip embedded passives and printed circuit board (PCB) interconnects.

Simultaneously, STMicroelectronics NV (STM - Snapshot Report) has selected Agilent’s EMPro 2012 software to develop their ESD structures. This will prove to be beneficial for Agilent going forward.

There is ample room for growth if Agilent plays to its strength and remains committed to its customers by providing world class, affordable test and measurement solutions. Agilent’s testing systems have proved to be effective in the past, enabling it to build a strong position for itself.

Agilent’s revenue in the third quarter was flat sequentially and up 1.9% year over year, short of management’s expectations of a 2-3% sequential increase ($1.77 billion to $1.79 billion). The Electronic Measurement segment contributed 49.0% of revenue. The weakness was on the computing/semiconductor side of the business.

The Life Sciences segment generated 23.0% of revenue, down 1.0% sequentially and up 2.1% from last year. The Chemical Analysis segment generated 22.0% of third quarter revenue, down 8.8% sequentially and 7.0% year over year. The sequential decline was largely because of weakness in food testing.

Currently, Agilent Technologies has a Zacks #4 Rank, implying a short-term Sell rating.
