Millimetre-wave start-up Movandi said it will leverage Keysight’s teting and measurement tools in the development, qualification, and manufacturing of mmWave RF and antenna technologies. Movandi will also provide antenna arrays to Keysight to support the optimization and streamlining the process of performing OTA testing.
Movandi has collaborated with Keysight to test and validate Movandi’s BeamX technology and support optimizing Keysight’s over the air (OTA) test systems.
Movandi’s (mmWave) technology is a scalable RF front-end solution that integrates RF, antenna, beamforming, and control algorithms into a modular 5G millimeter wave solution intended for Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), small cell, and base station applications.
The company said it will use Keysight’s T&M equipment to support the development process for the higher performance of RFIC and antenna solutions.
“We are excited to work together to advance the 5G market and solve the challenges at every step in the development and deployment process,” said Reza Rofougaran, CTO and Co-CEO, Movandi. “Solving the testing challenges will help uncover the huge potential offered by much greater bandwidth, spatial reuse, and frequency reuse.”
“5G and mmWave represent the most disruptive generational change in cellular networks due to higher frequencies, ill-behaved propagation, beamforming, and over-the-air testing”, Keysight noted.
“We are pleased to be enabling startups like Movandi, who are innovating to provide solutions that make 5G possible,” said Kailash Narayanan, Vice President and General Manager, Wireless Device and Operators group, Keysight Technologies. “Tightly coupled integration of the elements from baseband to RF to air interface present new opportunities that require our testing solutions to deliver the validation needed for Movandi’s next-gen technologies.”
The Keysight 5G test solution includes PNA-X network analyzers, UXA spectrum/signal analyzers, M8190A arbitrary waveform generator, PSG vector signal generators, 89600A VSA software, and S-Series and Z-Series oscilloscope
