I understand why the changed the name, but I think they could have gotten something better. Agilent was a good name and they had a strong brand. If I saw "Keysight Technologies" written on my multimeter I would think it was made by some no name Chinese company.

Agilent was not 'well recogmized' when they split from HP either.  The principles of the company and product strength are what made Agilent well recognized.  It looks like they are taking the same approach with the latest split.  I agree the chosen name is not the most appealing.

Maybe we all should chime in on the name before they call it Sunsight or something equqally creative ;-)

@krisi before they call it Sunsight or something equqally creative

Sunshight, maybe? 

Our employer has recently embraced a new accounting system called Syteline, the most overblown, complicated, and useless piece of crap I've ever been forced to use.  We in engineering refer to it as " Shyteline ".

Note to Marketeers - do not use the word "Site" or Sight" in your new ultra-creative product name - too many ways for it to be ridiculed.

Name change is not desirable but ok. However, do they have new mission statement and more importantly new product range in pipeline?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
