Keysight Technologies Introduces Industry’s First All-in-One Software for R&D Engineers Designing, Evaluating 5G Candidate Waveforms

Software Provides Integrated Solution for System Calibration, 5G Signal Creation and Signal Analysis

Highlights:

  • Simplifies the building of test systems with wideband channels at the transmitter, receiver, or both
  • Facilitates complex calibration of RF to millimeter-wave measurement systems and creates task-based test setup guidance—from signal creation to measurement
  • Generates and analyzes 5G candidate waveforms to ensure accurate and repeatable measurements

SANTA ROSA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 11, 2016 — Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today introduced its Signal Optimizer software—the industry’s first and only all-in-one software for calibration, signal creation and signal analysis of 5G candidate waveforms. By simplifying calibration and the critical design tasks related to 5G signal creation and analysis, the software enables R&D engineers to focus more time on being first-to-market with their own designs.

Calibration is essential to making accurate measurements of 5G signals; however, calibrating wideband channels at RF, microwave and millimeter wave frequencies is a challenging task. Keysight’s new Signal Optimizer software overcomes this challenge by making fully-guided system calibrations easier than ever before. The software also features task-based instructions that simplify complex system optimization and measurements, and allow engineers to more confidently validate their 5G designs.

“R&D engineers at major wireless infrastructure and device vendors are designing and evaluating 5G candidate technologies using a complex range of different tools,” said Mark Pierpont, vice president of Keysight’s Internet Infrastructure Solutions Group. “Our new Signal Optimizer software solves this problem by bringing together 5G measurement science and flexible wideband system calibrations in a single software solution. The result is a powerful 5G-focused solution for accelerating deployment of the fifth generation of mobile wireless services.”

Keysight’s Signal Optimizer software can generate and analyze a host of 5G candidate technologies, such as FBMC and F-OFDM. Enhanced LTE for 5G is also being developed along with new multiple access on existing LTE signals. Future additions are simply licensed and added to the Signal Optimizer software on an as needed basis.
