Keysight inaugurates teaching laboratories at the University of Limoges


Keysight has strengthened more than a decade of collaboration with the University of Limoges with the inauguration of Keysight-branded teaching laboratories at the French university’s Limoges and Brive campuses.

An inauguration ceremony was recently held at the University of Limoges for the Keysight-branded basic electronic lab and distance learning lab. This lab is equipped with Keysight instruments such as benchtop digital multimeters, benchtop function generators and oscilloscopes, including 10 series oscilloscopes especially funded by Keysight. Together, with executives from Keysight and the University of Limoges, representatives from Thales and NXP were also invited to the ceremony.

“We are excited for the first Keysight branded educational laboratory in France,” said Huei-Sin Ee, vice president & general  manager of General Electronics Measurement Solutions. “We are looking forward to further establishing such educational laboratories to help to produce more industry-ready students as part of our commitment to academic excellence.”

“With the proliferation and evolution of electronics, being the first in the industry requires more innovation and breakthroughs in research,” said Benoit Neel, vice president and general manager of EMEAI Sales. “We cannot dissociate education and research from innovation. Academic excellence leads to industry-ready engineers, who in turn lead to innovations through research.”

This lab is the first one branded in France allowing fully remote practical works for students who will learn the basis of embedded electronics, microwave electronics and photonics.

Collaborations with the University of Limoges were established as part of Keysight’s EEsof University Program, and includes work with XLIM, the university’s CNRS-funded research institute. XLIM conducts world-class research, particularly in non-linear RF and 5G.
