A recent Friday morning found me at Keysight Technologies headquarters in Santa Rosa, California. Keysight, for those who somehow escaped this news, was the electronic test arm of Agilent Technologies, spun off as an independent company late last year. Agilent itself was a spin off of Hewlett-Packard Company in 1999.
My objective of the day was to catch up on the latest modular (AXIe and PXI) instrument happenings from Keysight, with a particular focus on 5G. I still plan to cover the Keysight 5G channel sounding system in a future column, but not today. A chance encounter with Keysight CEO Ron Nersesian changed the focus of this column to Keysight’s modular strategy.
My question to Ron was simply this: I’ve seen Keysight state that it’s goal is to eventually become the leader in modular instrumentation. Can you confirm? And if so, how do you plan to do so?
