"Acqiris' expertise in high-speed digitizers and analyzers builds on our current product portfolio and technical capabilities," said Ron Nersesian, vice president and general manager of Agilent's wireless business unit. "Their broad high-speed offering significantly contributes to our ability to meet the ongoing demand from our customers for in-product test to accelerate time-to-market and reduce cost. Acqiris' digitizers strengthen our synthetic instrument offerings."

The transaction is subject to standard closing conditions. Upon completion of the acquisition, Acqiris' team of 60 employees will join Agilent.

"This acquisition by Agilent is a key strategic decision that will allow Acqiris to expand our opportunities while strengthening our support to our existing customers," said Viktor Hungerbuhler, Acqiris CEO.
