PROPSIM FS16, as informed by Keysight, enables chipset and device makers to verify the implementation of MIMO and massive MIMO in any 5G new radio (NR) frequency band
Keysight Technologies has introduced new 5G channel emulation capabilities. Keysight’s PROPSIM FS16 channel emulation solution is the latest in a long line of technology introduced by Keysight to accelerate 5G development and commercialisation. PROPSIM FS16 enables users to verify the performance of 5G new radio (NR) devices with support for ultra-wide bandwidths in mmWave frequency spectrum, beam forming technology and multiple-antenna configurations.
“Keysight’s new RF channel emulation solution enables a connected ecosystem to cost-effectively accelerate the development and commercialization of innovative 5G devices used to deliver superior end-user experiences,” said Janne Kolu, director of Keysight’s channel emulation solutions.
Complements Keysight’s industry-first PROPSIM F64 channel emulation solution
PROPSIM FS16 complements Keysight’s industry-first PROPSIM F64 channel emulation solution, which is used to address ultra-high fading capacity needs. It supports the 5G NR frequency bands and bandwidths as specified by 3GPP. The solution seamlessly integrates with Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions to address performance requirements that extend beyond conformance testing mandated by 3GPP, the global mobile standards organization.
“Our comprehensive 5G channel emulation portfolio uniquely offers consistent fading capabilities across the device workflow to support cost-effective debugging, optimization and performance validation,” added Janne Kolu.
The new 5G channel emulation solution extends Keysight’s family of 5G channel emulators, widely used for benchmarking and validating devices and base stations. PROPSIM FS16 helps chipset and device makers cost-effectively and confidently validate the real-world performance of 5G designs using MIMO* and massive MIMO antenna technology for high data rate applications. The solution is housed in a compact and modular benchtop 5G NR radio frequency (RF) channel emulator with scalable fading capacity and intuitive software tools.
