Agere Selects Agilent Technologies' 93000 SOC Series
Agilent Technologies Inc. (Palo Alto, CA) announced that Agere Systems has selected the Agilent 93000 SOC Series test system to test its next-generation Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) controller IC in development and production. Agilent was selected for its scalable platform solution, which is capable of at-speed testing of devices at the 3.0 Gb/s data rate.
"Agilent's innovative digital approach allows us to test the high-speed interface of our storage ICs at today's most demanding data rates, and also offers us a scalable platform to meet the testing requirements of the future," said Sandeep Kumar, director of test engineering for Agere. "We were able to rapidly develop a test program based on the Agilent 93000 that met our customers' needs and will help us drive the transition from parallel SCSI to SAS in the enterprise disk drive market."
