Keysight supports B4G/5G technology development at NTU’s High-Speed Radio Frequency and mmWave Center

Keysight Technologies Inc of Santa Rosa, CA, USA (spun off as a subsidiary of Santa Clara-based Agilent Technologies Inc in August), which provides electronic measurement instruments and systems and related software, software design tools and services, has announced sponsorship of the B4G MIMO Lab, part of National Taiwan University’s (NTU) High-Speed Radio Frequency and mmWave Center.

Keysight has also joined the B4G/5G Technology Forum. The lab is one of the projects at the center aiming to develop key components used in Beyond 4G and 5G mobile communication systems.

With 5G becoming a critical component for addressing increasing mobile internet usage, the Taiwan government is supporting academia to develop future technologies. It has called upon NTU to (1) set up the High-Speed Radio Frequency and mmWave Center, (2) perform advanced research and (3) further assist local industries. Keysight has donated a 4x4 MIMO measurement system for the center to develop the key components used in next-generation communication systems, such as CMOS-based monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), LTCC-based SiP (system-in-package), smart antenna and power amplifier (PA) front-end modules. Several local industrial companies have agreed to commercialize the developed technologies.

The B4G/5G Technology Forum was held on the same day as the center’s grand opening. Keysight and other industrial partners delivered presentations on a variety of 5G related topics and solutions. Keysight’s test solutions include:

  • 5G design and simulation environment;
  • Power Amplifier Reference Solution with envelope tracking and digital pre-distortion;
  • 4x4 MIMO measurement system;
  • Multi-antenna Calibration Reference Solution for phased-array antennas; and
  • E-band signal generation and analysis system.

“Keysight has the most complete solutions and experiences including EDA tools and measurement environment to help speed up our work from design to test and verify our prototypes,” comments center chairman professorTzong-Lin Wu (chairman of NTU’s Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering).

“We have the core measurement science and NTU is highly acclaimed for its talent and advanced research,” comments Allen Chang, Keysight Taiwan general manager. “This joint effort will help speed up the next-generation technology development.”
