Agilent T&M becomes Keysight; the Old HP Labs Keep the Agilent Name

keysight_lg

Last Friday, August 1, the part of Agilent Technologies that makes test and measurement gear changed its name to Keysight (one-word, no intercap) Technologies, and separated itself financially from the part that was HP Labs. That part will continue to be called Agilent Labs, and will continue to do research in life sciences, microelectromechanical machines, and nanotechnology, and will get to keep the “Agilent” Moniker.
