Keysight Technologies, Integrated Device Technologies Collaborate on Component Characterization of 5G mmWave Beamforming Integrated Circuits
Keysight’s 5G solutions enable beamformer provider to accelerate performance validation of designs for 5G NR base stations
SANTA ROSA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced an extended collaboration with Integrated Device Technologies, Inc. (IDT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), on component characterization of 5G new radio (NR) mmWave integrated circuit (IC) beamformers to accelerate development of 5G NR base stations.

Tweet thisNetwork equipment manufacturers (NEMs) use beamforming technology in 5G NR base stations to improve reliability and efficiency in the mmWave frequency spectrum. Beamforming uses multiple antennas (a phased array) to transmit the same signal, thereby increasing the signal strength to and from a chosen direction to extend cellular coverage, delivering higher data rates and an improved radio environment.
“Our close collaboration with Keysight enables us to validate that our 5G beamformers and other components deliver the high performance and low-power consumption essential for 5G network infrastructure equipment,” said Naveen Yanduru, vice president and general manager of IDT’s RF product division.
As the bandwidth of integrated circuits using 5G technology increases, it is important to characterize their performance over wider frequency ranges. This is why IDT uses Keysight’s high performance family of vector network analyzers (VNAs) to validate the performance of its beamformer ICs. Keysight solutions enable IDT, and other leading designers of ICs, to measure key parameters such as scattering (S) parameters, 1dB compression point (P1dB), third-order intermodulation products (IM3), and error vector magnitude (EVM).
“Our extended collaboration with IDT demonstrates how Keysight’s 5G beamformer IC test solutions enable designers of beamformers to validate performance using high precision measurement and simulation tools, ensuring reliable and efficient designs,” said Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager of Keysight's wireless test group.
The two companies will use the Keysight Streamline USB VNA to demonstrate IDT’s active beamforming radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) for 5G NR at the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Phased Array Systems and Technology (Array2019) taking place October 15 – 18, 2019 in Waltham, MA.
