Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced the 5G RF DVT Toolset, an industry-first network emulation solution for 5G radio design verification test. The new toolset cost-effectively scales from sub-6 GHz to mmWave, and from pre-5G standards to new radio (NR).
The 5G RF DVT Toolset is the latest solution in Keysight's 5G network emulation solution (NES) portfolio. The 5G RF DVT Toolset is based on Keysight's UXM 5G wireless test platform, as is the first-to-market, 5G Protocol R&D Toolset (announced in May 2017). The toolset is engineered to ensure measurement traceability—from early prototyping to acceptance and manufacturing.
"5G RF test on-a-call is vital to verify device performance and is particularly challenging due to mmWave frequencies and beamforming," said Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager, Wireless Device and Operators. "Keysight is delivering first-to-market solutions and enabling the industry to accelerate their 5G device projects."
The 5G RF DVT Toolset uses Keysight's Test Automation Platform (TAP), allowing the design engineer to easily create and customize RF and radio resource management (RRM) test cases with the highest degree of parametrization.
