Keysight’s Test Platforms Help Gemtek Deliver Reliable 5G, LTE and Wi-Fi Wireless Connectivity Solutions

Keysight’s 5G and 4G solutions verify data rate performance of consumer premises equipment

SANTA ROSA, Calif., June 10, 2020 – 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 Gemtek has selected Keysight’s 5G and 4G LTE test solutions to verify data rate performance of consumer premises equipment (CPE) and mobile devices used to deliver fixed wireless access (FWA) in homes and businesses.

Keysight’s test solution uses the company’s UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform to enable Gemtek, a leading original design manufacturer (ODM) of wireless broadband communications equipment, to design high-performing CPEs. These CPEs are used by operators of private and national mobile networks to deliver enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) services. Gemtek selected Keysight’s 5G and 4G LTE test platforms to validate their designs, which serve an ecosystem consisting of more than 430 operators and around 75 vendors of indoor and outdoor CPE providers.

“Working with Keysight has enabled Gemtek to accelerate the development of high-performing designs for a market that relies on a combination of technologies, including 4G, 5G and Wi-Fi, to deliver broadband wireless communications,” said Fred Yeh, chief technology officer at Gemtek. “Keysight’s test platforms allow us to continuously expand operations into new technologies or standards, such as Wi-Fi 7 and O-RAN, as well as markets that serve industries and consumers that need reliable wireless connectivity, no matter where they are.”

Gemtek also relies on Keysight’s 5G test solutions to verify designs that support 5G new radio (NR) technology in standalone (SA) mode, which doesn’t require the LTE core for signaling. This enables operators to reduce their dependence on multiple technologies and the resulting complexity. Larger businesses are expected to deploy private 5G NR networks in the SA mode, which increases productivity and improves efficiencies in a wide range of processes including those in factories, warehouses, ports, agriculture, mining and oil refineries.

“We’re pleased to expand our collaboration with Gemtek with 5G and 4G test solutions that streamline the workflow from early prototyping, design verification to high-volume manufacturing,” said Cao Peng, senior director of Keysight’s communications solutions group. “Keysight’s test platforms support multiple technologies enabling a growing ecosystem of manufacturers to verify designs needed to deliver high data rates in mobile and fixed wireless access applications.”

True 3D EM Modeling Enables Fast, Accurate Analysis

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Tired of patchwork 3D EM analysis? Impedance discontinuity can destroy your BER and cause multiple design iterations. Using today’s 3D EM modeling tools can take you days to accurately model the interconnect structures. The Clarity™ 3D Solver lets you tackle the most complex EM challenges when designing systems for 5G, high-performance computing, automotive and machine learning applications. The Clarity 3D Solver delivers gold-standard accuracy, 10X faster analysis speeds and virtually unlimited capacity for true 3D modeling of critical interconnects in PCB, IC package and system-on-IC (SoIC) designs.

AVX Supercapacitors: PrizmaCap

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and AVX

If your application requires a supercapacitor, there are a lot of options. You need the right form factor, temperature range, weight, and capacitance, of course. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Eric DeRose of AVX about choosing the right supercapacitor and about PrizmaCap - a new supercapacitor with low height, high temperature, and lightweight.
