Keysight Technologies has reported that NewRadio Technology has selected Keysight’s advanced signal source and analyzer measurement solutions to speed validation of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology.
“We’re pleased to work with NewRadio Tech to deliver test solutions and platforms for UWB, a highly precise, real-time, secure and reliable technology, which will drive the advancement of a wide range of new applications,” said Cao Peng, vice president and general manager for Keysight’s wireless device test group. “Keysight’s test solutions offer accurate measurements across a bandwidth of several gigahertz, which is important when extending the margin of a design.”
NewRadio Tech selected Keysight’s vector transceiver (VXT) in PXI format, signal generator, signal analyzer, and vector network analyzer (VNA) to validate the performance of the transmitter and receiver of the company’s UWB SoC solution, which uses very sensitive receivers and highly efficient power amplifiers (PAs).
“Keysight’s radio frequency (RF) measurement solutions enable NewRadio Tech to quickly and confidently advance across various development stages,” said Zhenqi Chen, chief executive officer at NewRadio Tech. “We combine Keysight’s high-performance hardware and software solutions with NewRadio Tech’s expertise in UWB positioning technology to bring to market highly integrated designs, accelerating the penetration of UWB solutions in next-generation wireless communications.”
NewRadio Tech’s UWB designs are used for a wide range of applications, including 5G smartphones, IoT devices, augmented and virtual reality sets, as well as connected cars.
NewRadio Tech’s and Keysight have worked together to help accelerate the commercialization of standards-based UWB technology, leading to rapid interoperability testing of UWB devices.
Both Keysight and New Radio Tech work closely with the UWB Alliance, as well as the FiRa Consortium, which is dedicated to the development and adoption of seamless user experiences using interoperable UWB technologies.
