ADI and Keysight jointly providing design and test for phased array tech
In the next-generation 5G and 6G wireless and satellite communication domain, phased array antenna technologies are critical in RF beam forming. The two leading companies Analog Devices and Keysight Technologies who are good in advanced RF are collaborating to further develop in advancing the adoption of phased array technology by providing a total design, test, and calibration solution.
Analog Devices said it provides a total solution offering family of phased array platforms for beamforming, which can then be tested and calibrated with Keysight phased array test solutions.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Analog Devices to bring innovative phased array technology to a wide variety of new customers and their use cases,” said Peng Cao, Vice President and General Manager for Keysight’s Wireless Test Group. “Keysight’s state-of-the-art measurement solutions have transformed phased array test times from minutes down to seconds. Working closely with Analog Devices, we have demonstrated a 70 times faster measurement speed while maintaining excellent accuracy. Bringing together the beamforming advances of Analog Devices and measurement innovation from Keysight, our customers will now have the opportunity for a complete, end-to-end solution for phased arrays which will accelerate time to market and deliver exceptional performance.”
“Our customers are demanding more than just a beamforming IC, but rather a total system level solution with the test and calibration of the array. By utilizing ADI’s system platforms, the collaboration between ADI and Keysight intends to help accelerate the adoption of phased array platforms for higher data rate communications and sensing solutions,” noted Bryan Goldstein, Vice President of Aerospace and Defense at Analog Devices.
