Keysight Technologies Accelerates AAC Technologies’ Commercial Introduction of High-Performance 5G mmWave Front-End Solutions

Sponsored by Businesswire

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that AAC
Technologies (AAC), a leading provider of advanced miniaturized
technology, used Keysight’s suite of 5G
to introduce
high-performance 5G mmWave front-end solutions
for next generation
mobile phones and base stations.

Following AAC’s
to invest in a research and development center in
Singapore last year, the company chose Keysight’s
5G Waveform Generation and Analysis Testbed
to validate its new 5G
millimeter-wave (mmWave) radio-frequency front end (RFFE) solutions. The
testbed leverages Keysight’s metrology-grade signal source and signal
analyzers, as well as Keysight’s industry-proven software tools – Signal
(a signal creation tool) and 89600
(a demodulation and vector signal analysis tool) – to
confidently validate that their new 5G mmWave RFFE solutions comply to
the latest 3GPP Release 15 standards.

“Our extended collaboration with Keysight, initiated more than eight
years ago in support of our development of micro-electromechanical
systems or MEMS, will enable us to successfully establish AAC as a
leading solution provider of 5G RFFE integrated components for a global
wireless market,” said Dr. Roger Tay, vice president of research and
development and general manager of AAC Technologies. “Thanks to
Keysight’s end-to-end 5G solutions and Anokiwave’s mmWave Core
integrated circuits, we can accelerate commercialization of
high-performance 5G mmWave integrated front-end solutions in a small
form factor that serve emerging small cell and fixed wireless markets.”

“We are proud to play an instrumental role in empowering a leading
provider to deliver 5G components that are critical for offering fast,
reliable 5G connectivity to end-users,” said Roger Nichols, 5G program
manager at Keysight. “Keysight’s 5G solutions, widely adopted by the
mobile ecosystem around the world, enable wireless component makers to
accurately validate designs for devices and base stations under a
multitude of technically demanding scenarios.”

AAC’s 5G mmWave device incorporates Anokiwave’s mmWave Core integrated
circuits (ICs) to address demanding 5G technical requirements in a small
form-factor by leveraging energy-efficient mmWave beamformer integrated

AAC also selected Keysight’s
high performance wafer-level measurement solutions (WMS)
which are critical for optimizing device modeling to accelerate design
validation workflow for radio frequency (RF) and mmWave components.
