As radio technology evolves, the unique radios of the past are giving way to compatible, multimode, or software defined digital systems that ensure easy interoperability. To keep pace, your measurement solutions must be able to test these versatile radios throughout their lifecycles. Your overall cost of test is being dramatically impacted by long test development time and measurement correlation issues that often occur when transitioning from R&D to Production to Depot. This results in additional, unforeseen costs and delays impacting your time to market.

Minimize IP migration, expedite manufacturing timeliness, reduce test engineering costs, and improve measurement correlation with tailored solutions and common measurement software from Keysight for each phase of the lifecycle.

M8920A Radio Test set

Keysight’s M8920A Radio Test Set supports many formats by combining PXI hardware with application specific software in a single flexible and scalable chassis, providing broad multiformat coverage for next generation radio testing. It has a scalable modular architecture for efficient and complete test development and execution needed for the manufacturing and radio maintenance environment. It also supports general-purpose measurements and commercial standards (LTE, WLAN, and Bluetooth®) for next generation radio test.

Software Defined Radio

Software Defined Radio designs require greater integration of DSP/digital and RF functions. Keysight recognizes this challenge and has broadened its traditional wireless toolsets to work across the digital and RF elements, allowing system‑wide debugging and ensuring interoperation of your test so you can focus on what matters most; assuring your design will be successful.

Channel Emulation

Manufacturers and military forces require the ability to test mixed networks that combine tactical and avionics radios with satellite links. This ensures the robust interoperation of avionics, surveillance, radar, or satellite systems for mission critical wireless communications.

Your deployments of increasingly complex and advanced technologies, such as MIMO and beamforming for military communication systems, require accelerated testing of large mesh network topologies with dynamically changing radio channel and interference conditions.

The PROPSIM MANET Channel Emulation Solution is a highly scalable and flexible solution that supports full mesh configurations of up to 64 radios using 4032 independent fading channels in a single unit for testing large SISO and MIMO mesh network topologies with up to 1.2 GHz of instantaneous bandwidth for ultra wideband support for testing gigabit links.
