Keysight, the test and measurement vendor, has announced a collaboration with Motorola Mobility LLC, a subsidiary of Lenovo. The collaboration accelerates delivery of the first mmWave 5G New Radio (NR) devices using Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions for early 5G chipset prototyping, development, and device design validation.
5G technology brings significant device development challenges including new mmWave frequencies, beamforming and sophisticated radio frequency front-end design in a compact package. Device manufacturers, such as Motorola Mobility, benefit from collaborating with Keysight, a proven 5G partner, to provide the depth of technology, solutions and global support required to transition into an accelerated and intense development phase.
“We are very pleased to be working with Motorola Mobility to help them bring their latest 5G devices to market faster,” said Scott Bryden, vice president of wireless device solutions at Keysight Technologies. “Early engagements with key 5G chipset providers has enabled Keysight to deliver first-to-market 5G solutions as 5G device design work accelerates.”
Last year, Keysight was first to announce that its suite of 5G network emulation solutions, including 5G Protocol R&D and RF Design Verification Toolsets, support the new 3GPP 5G NR Non-Standalone standard, enabling the device ecosystem to streamline its product workflow from early prototyping and development to design validation and manufacturing. These solutions leverage common development tools to eliminate siloed data sets and share design insights gained across each stage of the device lifecycle. As a result, chipset and device manufacturers can accelerate delivery of new 5G NR products to market.
