"Agilent Technologies (NYSE: A) (""Agilent"" for short) is a measurement and instrument company headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Agilent's roots are at the founding of Hewlett-Packard in 1939. All of the businesses not related to computers, storage, and imaging were spun off from HP in 1999 to form Agilent. Agilent's spin-off was the largest initial public offering in the history of Silicon Valley.

The spin-off created an $8 billion company with about 47,000 employees, manufacturing scientific instruments, semiconductors, optical networking devices, and electronic test equipment for telecom and wireless R&D and production.

Agilent Technologies keeps scientists on their toes. A leading manufacturer of scientific instruments and analysis equipment, Agilent is the #1 supplier of electronic test and measurement products, including data generators, multimeters, and oscilloscopes. Its life sciences and chemical analysis unit manufactures laboratory equipment and other scientific instruments. Agilent's 30,000 customers include global giants, such as Cisco, Dow Chemical, GlaxoSmithKline, Intel, Merck, and Samsung. Operations outside the US account for about two-thirds of sales."
