Unlocking Millimeter Wave Insights

Leading-Edge Design, Simulation and Measurement at Millimeter-Wave Frequencies.

Company Extends Leadership in Millimeter Wave with Continuous-Sweep Signal Analysis to 110 GHz.

Highlights:

  • Industry-leading continuous frequency coverage from 3 Hz to 110 GHz
  • Displayed average noise level as low as –150 dBm/Hz above 50 GHz
  • Industry-first maximum analysis bandwidth of 5 GHz

On the 4th of October 2016 at European Microwave Week 2016, ExCel Exhibition Centre, Booth E2, Keysight Technologies announced an industry-leading breakthrough in spectrum and signal analysis at millimeter-wave frequencies. The Keysight N9041B UXA X-Series signal analyzer is the first to provide frequency coverage to 110 GHz with a maximum analysis bandwidth of up to 5 GHz.

Developing off-the-shelf tools for extremely high frequencies requires Keysight's proven blend of measurement science and millimeter-wave expertise. The N9041B UXA exemplifies the company's unique capabilities with attributes such as advanced front-end circuitry that achieves low loss and efficient mixing, providing a displayed average noise level (DANL) as low as –150 dBm/Hz when characterizing wideband modulated signals in the millimeter-wave band.

"This new UXA is a clear example of Keysight's leadership in providing the tools our customers need to achieve their time-to-market goals in the fast moving communications market," said Mike Gasparian, president, Keysight Communications Solution Group. "Together with the 802.11ad RF test solution, the UXA adds a new level of insight to millimeter-wave applications such as 5G, 802.11ad and automotive radar, and it is the next step in our program to bring technology above 50 GHz to commercial applications."

The challenges of designing systems at these frequencies are significant, and this increases the need for integrated tools in design, simulation, measurement and analysis. Keysight software solutions for design and simulation provide an efficient workflow that accelerates development of next-generation devices and systems. These tools were used in the development of the N9041B UXA and enabled first-time-correct designs of its millimeter-wave circuits. Keysight engineers also used the company's industry-leading millimeter-wave measurement tools, including network analyzers, oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, signal generators and associated application software, to fully characterize their devices.

Current applications of these tools include development of 5G wireless communications, millimeter-wave backhaul, satellite communications, automotive radar, military radar and electronic warfare systems. Emerging applications encompass development of devices and systems capable of performing high-resolution materials measurements for manufacturing, pharmaceutical and medical.
