Keysight Technologies, Xiaomi collaborate on 5G NR device development

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that it has been selected as the sole supplier of 5G network emulation solutions by Xiaomi Corporation, a Chinese electronics company, to accelerate development of its 5G NR mobile devices, the company said.

5G devices operating on mmWave frequencies rely on phased array antenna and beamforming technologies to address higher data throughput requirements. Keysight´s 5G RF DVT Toolset supports the latest 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) Release 15 specifications, including beamforming and beam management across sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies. This comprehensive set of capabilities allows Xiaomi to validate the performance of 5G mobile devices, with easy-to-use tools for test case creation, execution and analysis in a controlled laboratory-based environment.

5G RF DVT Toolset is part of Keysight´s suite of network emulation solutions which enable the mobile device ecosystem to streamline the product workflow from early prototyping and development to design validation and manufacturing. These solutions enable users to perform device characterization and validation in over-the-air (OTA) real-world conditions. By using the same test capabilities and test cases specified by chipset vendors and mobile operators, device manufacturers can easily validate device performance, speed development and achieve consistent results.
