Keysight Technologies - Test and Measurement

"From a small garage in Palo Alto, California, to employees around the world serving customers in 110 countries......."  Changes that happened --- hp >> agilent >> Keysight Technologies

Please Note - Just like HP who started as a T&M Equipment firm, hived off the founding Niche as Agilent, Now Keysight holds that root Niche of T&M that companies like Fluke, Tek and Rohde & Schwarz belong.

The company founded by William "Bill" Redington Hewlett and Dave Packard was know as Hewlett-Packard Company or HP. This was a Test and Measurement company. First popular product was a precision audio oscillator, the Model HP200A.

Later Computer and Printer products divisions retained the brand and firm and Agilent was spun off for for the Test and Measurement and other non-computer product line.
