German lab teams with Tektronix for 6G
Wuppertal University in Germany is kitting out a 6G research lab with instruments from Tektronix in two water cooled 19in racks.

A 6G lab at Wuppertal University led by Prof. Dr. Ullrich Pfeiffer aims to develop components that allow higher data throughput and lower latency for applications such as autonomous driving and remote surgery with haptic feedback.

The lab is using a wide range of test systems from Tektronix, with six DPO77001SX 70GHz oscilloscopes, six AWG70001B 50 GSa/s Arbitrary Waveform Generators, three AWG Synch Hubs, three SignalVuPC Vector Signal Analysis Software and three SourceXpress Waveform Generation Software. These are installed in two water cooled 19in racks supplied by system integrator ATV (Automatisierungstechnik Voigt) to reduce acoustic noise and improve thermal stability.

As well as equipment, Tektronix was also chosen for the engineering support it could offer through its engineers. “We were pleased to have found Tektronix, as access to their technical experts made our team feel safe and supported. Particularly the possibility to scale up the system by synchronizing multiple instruments is crucial for the research on THz MIMO communication” said Professor Dr. Pfeiffer.

The University of Wuppertal (BUW) was founded in 1972 with a focus on teacher training programs, economics, and a variety of engineering and natural science courses with over 23,000 students.

“With the University of Wuppertal, we take pride to support and enable Prof. Dr. Pfeiffer and his team to develop advanced 6G technology, that will touch every part of our society – socially and commercially; may it be autonomous driving, remote rescue and medical applications, which require the highest resolution 360° video transmission, IoT devices with much quicker data throughput, or smart cities,” said Maria Heriz, Vice President Commercial Operations EMEAI at Tektronix. “Such cutting-edge research to develop new underlying technology demands complex, fast and reliable test and measurement equipment that is tailor-made for the research conducted to enable the future of wireless technology. We wish this Key Researchers Team every success and Tektronix will stay close supporting them.”
