Keysight Technologies has announced that TMYTEK, a Taiwan-based startup of mmWave technology, has selected Keysight to verify the performance of antenna-in-package (AiP) designs that are used in 5G and satellite systems.

According to the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), one hundred and thirty-two operators in twenty-two countries have been assigned mmWave spectrum for deployment of 5G services such as fixed wireless access (FWA) and private 5G uses cases. Such services require wider bandwidths to support high data transfers and low latencies. Keysight’s measurement systems, based on common software platforms, enable TMYTEK to accurately verify mmWave designs for both 5G new radio (NR) and satellite applications.

“We support TMYTEK XBeam with test systems that ensure interoperability between radio units and distributed units that are part of a multi-vendor radio access network that uses open standard specifications,” said Jeffrey Chen, general manager of greater China wireless solutions engineering at Keysight Technologies.

TMYTEK selected Keysight’s Open RAN Studio to validate the functional operation and performance of a radio unit (O-RU). Open RAN Studio integrates Keysight software and hardware platforms to construct, play, capture and measure O-RAN traffic. This enables TMYTEK to verify that the O-RU is compliant to the latest O-RAN specifications. Open RAN Studio can be combined with signal generation and analysis platforms, as well as PathWave Signal Generation (Signal Studio) and Vector Signal Analysis (89600 VSA) software from Keysight. This allows TMYTEK to access a comprehensive range of cross domain and multi-channel O-RAN protocol measurements in both downlink (DL) and uplink (UL).

“Keysight offers TMYTEK the measurement certainty and performance in test we need to confidently develop AiP technology that meets the demands of both 5G and satellite markets,” said Su-Wei Chang, founder and president of TMYTEK. “Many 5G designs for mmWave spectrum deployment use AiP technology to reduce the size and cost of wireless systems as well as improve radio frequency (RF) performance.”

Keysight’s VXG Microwave Signal Generator offers high output power and ultra-low phase noise, enabling TMYTEK to improve measurement integrity at the wide bandwidths used at mmWave frequencies. The UXA Signal Analyzer supports wide analysis bandwidth and dynamic range, critical to both mmWave 5G and satellite applications.
