Agilent Technologies Inc. and Xpedion Design Systems, Inc. today announced they have signed a definitive agreement for Agilent to acquire Xpedion, a privately held company that provides software for wireless and high-speed digital circuit and systems design in the communications industry.
The transaction is subject to standard closing conditions. Financial details were not disclosed.
Agilent said the two companies intend to “solve the challenging problems” faced by radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) designers.
“These challenges are now more evident than ever as consumer-oriented RFICs have moved to RF CMOS technology with higher integration, requiring more complete verification methodologies,” it said in a statement.
