Key Features & Specifications

Applications: High-volume test of 5G NR network equipment and radio components

  • 5G NR base station transceiver systems
  • 5G NR components, including remote radio heads (RRH), distributed units (DU), active antenna arrays, amplifiers, chipsets


  • Lower Cost of Test
       - Single configuration scales easily from < 6 GHz to millimeter wave, with a minimum of single-purpose components
       - Reduced footprint vs. benchtop instruments
       - Extremely high test-throughput (“cloud ready”)
  • OTA readiness
       - Save space and cost with a single bi-directional head across all 24-44 GHz bands
       - Remote heads deliver best Power, EVM at your chamber
       - In-head switching for 2 polarizations saves both performance and cost at mmW
  • Effectiveness for Manufacturing
       - 1.2 GHz bandwidth TX/RX with low EVM and ACLR for 5G NR
       - Operates as a single instrument (including switching, heads, API, measurements), for easy automation
       - Reduces rework and false verdicts with calibrated system accuracy


  • Wideband signal generation and analysis of 5G NR (3GPP Release 15 and higher) waveforms in both
       - FR1 frequency bands (0.38-6.0 GHz)
       - FR2 frequency bands (24-44 GHz)
  • Features “OTA-friendly” expandable architecture that:
       - avoids high losses from switching and long cable runs
       - supports multiple remote millimeter wave heads and polarizations
       - supports multiple TX/RX channels

Measurement applications and software

The S9100A system includes 5G NR measurement application. Additional software may be compatible or recommended, such as

  • N7631C Signal Studio Pro for 5G NR creates sub-6 GHz and millimeter-wave 5GNR waveforms. (Also, N7630C for pre-5G, N7608C for custom IQ and OFDM)
  • 89600 VSA software to demodulate NR and pre-5G waveforms (option BHN), custom IQ (BHK), and custom OFDM (BHF) waveforms
  • KS8400A Test Automation Platform allows quick creation of automated test harnesses, for rapid design validation


The S9100A 5G Multi-Band Vector Transceiver is a streamlined, non-signaling measurement system that enables automated testing of 5G NR infrastructure equipment in both the FR1 (sub-6 GHz) and FR2 (24-44 GHz) spectrum bands. Compact system enables users to validate 5G RF radio performance in high-volume test in 4G as well as millimeter wave. It offers the precision required for in-band design validation in all the new 5G NR bands. Together with a modular architecture, easy to use API, and Keysight PathWave automation software, the 5G Multi-Band Vector Transceiver reduces your cost of test, and accelerates your time to volume, especially in millimeter wave.
