Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, today expanded the company's software eCommerce offering and added a new software "bundle and save" program for customers in North America and Europe.
In the past year, software and eCommerce played a key role in helping organizations, including vendors and customers, succeed despite the lockdown. According to Gartner, "Subscriptions bring recurring revenue and more frequent customer engagement that help organizations to increase revenue and customer lifetime value".
Keysight's new software eCommerce offering expands the portfolio of software available for purchase online to more than 300 test, application and design software packages. It provides customers with access to the latest test, measurement and design software for rapid, self-serve purchase and derive continuous value to support digital transformation.
Keysight's new software "bundle and save" subscriptions enable customers to save on up-front investment with flexible subscription-only licenses that provide high-value, pre-packaged solutions for specific applications in fast-evolving markets such as wireless communications including 4G/LTE and 5G, IoT and aerospace and defense. KeysightCare is included with these packages and all subscription software purchases so that customers always have access to the latest versions and support.
The first bundles available are:
- PathWave Vector Signal Analysis (89600 VSA)
- PathWave X-Series Measurement Applications
- PathWave Signal Generation products
Each bundle is targeted to different industry applications. For example, VSA bundles are available in four configurations: Custom Modulation, Pulse Analysis, Wireless Connectivity, and Cellular Communications. Each bundle contains the software modules specific to the application.
"Building on the success of our multi-channel transactional ecosystem, Keysight's new software eCommerce offerings make it easy and fast for customers to do business with Keysight while expanding access to our software portfolio," said Nilesh Kamdar, software business and operations director at Keysight. "The new software bundles are priced to deliver significant up-front cost savings and continuous value to support a customer's digital transformation initiatives. This allows customers to shift software budgets from CapEx to OpEx to improve cash flow, gain the flexibility to scale up or down as their business needs change and capture the highest value by keeping their software current and supported."
One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.

It’s been another busy week in the industry. We lost another old friend last week. The EIPC show happened, and Pete Starkey provided us with complete and compelling show coverage, from start to finish. Recently, we posed the question, “When is it time to introduce embedded components into your PCB design?” which was asked and answered by design aficionado Kris Moyers in the latest issue of Design007 Magazine. We are proud to be a part of the exciting Global Insights weekly newsletter, which Nolan Johnson and Brian Knier explored in their interview, and we rounded out the week with some big merger news. Here are my picks for the past week’s must-read news items.
