Keysight Technologies and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), plan to launch a software development center in Atlanta, Georgia.
The idea is to combine talent from Georgia Tech’s top 10 engineering program, with Keysight Technologies, the world’s leading electronic design and test company. Keysight, which has a longstanding relationship with Georgia Tech, hopes the new center will benefit both organizations by combining emerging talent with their own vast resources and experience within the industry.
The center will be located in Atlanta’s Midtown Tech Square, which is a growing center of innovation and technology that sits adjacent to the university. The two partners are hoping that this open environment will foster collaboration, and will support Keysight’s agile software development approach.
Georgia Tech President, G.P. “Bud” Peterson said, “One of the most attractive aspects of the innovation neighborhood we have created in Midtown’s Tech Square is not just the number of startups, but also the many Fortune 500 companies opening a presence there.”
The main focus is to develop next-generation software for use in design and test of electronic products. The center will grow to include more than 200 software developers over the next five years. In the meantime, Todd Cutler, Vice President and General Manager of Keysight Software Products Organization (SPO) and EEsof Electronic Design Automation, will relocate to Atlanta to lead the new software development center.
