Keysight, Spreadtrum collaborate on  innovation centre

Keysight Technologies and Spreadtrum Communications have announced the Spreadtrum-Keysight Innovation Centre, located in Shanghai. The Centre strengthens the strategic partnership between the two companies, first announced in 2016. It will provide mobile module design and test services for designers aiming to move forward the next generation of mobile communications innovations.

The Centre also will have technical consultants available to advise on design and test strategies for handling higher frequencies, wider bandwidths, high-speed digital interfaces, and more complicated test requirements under mixed-signal scenarios.

Spreadtrum is a worldwide top 10 fabless semiconductor company that develops the highly integrated, power-efficient chipsets platforms, supporting 2G, 3G and 4G wireless communications standards.

For more than a year, Keysight and Spreadtrum have been collaborating on LTE, LTE-Advanced, NB-IoT, MIMO, wideband DPD and 5G technologies.

This includes the entire product design lifecycle—system level simulations, baseband and radio frequency design and verifications, high-speed digital testing, functional measurement, and more.

The Spreadtrum-Keysight Innovation Centre is located at the Yaxin Science Park in Zhangjiang High-Tech Park, Pudong District. It provides an open test platform with the latest Spreadtrum samples, as well as new technology verification services in LTE/LTE-Advanced, NB-IoT, MIPI, MIMO OTA, and more.

In addition, the Centre will hold on-going technical open-day events in which the semiconductor and measurement experts will deliver the latest technology challenges and solutions, with a goal of accelerating the chip and mobile device product development and testing process.

“The Spreadtrum-Keysight Innovation Centre is another milestone to the strategic partnership first announced last year,” said Ron Nersesian (pictured), president and CEO of Keysight Technologies. “Keysight is dedicated to providing reliable and complete design and test solutions that help our customers bring mobile devices and communication modules to market faster and at a lower cost.”

“Our collaboration with Keysight will help ensure that our development of wireless technology keeps pace with the rapid change to new standards,” said Dr. Leo Li, chairman and CEO of Spreadtrum. “Spreadtrum has always focused on the customer and we expect that this Joint Innovation Centre will allow us to develop a platform for test and verification that our customers can use from day one.”
