Keysight Technologies has launched the 5G radio frequency (RF) design verification test (DVT) toolset, a network emulation solution for 5G radio design verification. The new toolset cost-effectively scales from sub-6 GHz to mmWave and from pre-5G standards to new radio.

The 5G RF DVT toolset is based on Keysight’s UXM 5G wireless test platform. It is engineered to ensure measurement traceability from early prototyping to acceptance and manufacturing.

The 5G RF DVT toolset uses Keysight’s test automation platform, allowing design engineers to easily create and customise RF and radio resource management test cases with the highest degree of parameterisation.

The key highlights of the 5G RF DVT are:

  • It verifies 5G devices with a rich RF measurement suite for conducting over-the-air tests.
  • It validates 5G beamforming and beam management in new 5G devices with on-chip antenna arrays.
  • It verifies 5G waveforms and numerology with flexible test case developments, fast execution of test campaigns and in-depth result analysis.
