A wide range of design and test solutions for components and systems used in 5G communications, internet of things (IoT), and aerospace and defence applications that solve the toughest engineering challenges will be showcased by Keysight Technologies at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium in Hawaii. (June 4–9).
The newly-announced N5290/91A broadband millimetre-wave network analyser will be on parade. It delivers system-level accuracy from 900Hz to 120GHz. The analyser produces metrology-grade results—enabling leading-edge developers to confidently characterize their millimetre-wave designs.
The PA/FEM test solution provides comprehensive, one-connection/multiple-measurement capability—enabling design engineers to measure modulation (ACPR, PAE, EVM) and CW characteristics (S-parameter, gain compulsion, P1dB) in 5G power amplifiers.
Also on show will be IEEE 802.11ax life-cycle test solutions support WiFi BBIQ, 8x8 MIMO, OFDMA-MU UL/DL and their test coverage has been verified up to Draft 1.2 specification.
The products enable WiFi chipset and 802.11ax device makers in simulation, design and verification, and volume production with industry-leading performance and cost of test.
SystemVue 2017 electronic system level simulation software provides the industry’s first Verizon 5G link level validation of 5G base station and handset designs. The software integrates adaptive RF phased array MIMO beamforming in 5G mmWave channel environments with reference baseband modem and 28GHz RFIC architecture.
Keysight will also feature the FieldFox hand-held microwave analysers which now connect to the 89600 VSA software and the new multi-touch user interface (UI) for all models in the PNA Series of network analysers.
Updates to the UI include a 12.1-inch widescreen display, easy access to frequently used functions, and intuitive gestures to drag-and-drop or magnify traces.
