High-performance test of 5G NR network equipment and radio components

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


  • best-in-class EVM and ACLR performance with reduced footprint vs. benchtop instruments and extremely high test throughput (“cloud ready”)
  • 12 GHz DUT IF option to extend range of standard 8 GHz vector transceiver
  • over-the-air (OTA) readiness saves space and cost with single bi-directional remote head with in-head switching for two polarizations across all 24.25 to 43.5 GHz bands, delivering best-in-class power and EVM at chamber
  • manufacturing effectiveness: 1.2 GHz bandwidth, Tx/Rx with best-in-class EVM and ACLR, operates as single instrument (includes switching, heads, API, measurements), easy automation with calibrated system accuracy that reduces rework and false verdicts


  • wideband signal generation and analysis of 5G NR (3GPP Release 16 and higher) waveforms in both FR1 (380 MHz to 8 GHz with 12 GHz option) and FR2 (24.25 to 43.5 GHz)
  • features OTA-friendly expandable architecture: avoids high losses from switching and long cable runs, supports one remote mmWave head

Measurement applications and software

  • the S9130A system can be factory-configured at the time of ordering with the following measurement only application software:
  •  N9085EM0E – 5G NR Measurement Application (X-App)
  •  Y9085EM0E – 5G NR Waveform and Measurement Application

See the S9130A Configuration Guide for additional recommended software (user installed) including: N7631EMBC Signal Studio Pro for 5G NR, N7630EMBC for pre-5G, 89600 VSA software, and KS8400A Test Automation Platform 

The Keysight S9130A 5G Performance Multi-Band Vector Transceiver with one transceiver covers FR1 (380 MHz to 8 GHz) along with one mmWave transceiver that covers FR2 (24.25 to 43.5 GHz).
