Keysight & MediaTek to Accelerate 5GNR Chipset Development & Protocol Stack Testing

Keysight has extended its collaboration with MediaTek to accelerate 5G New Radio (NR) chipset development and testing of 5G NR protocol stacks.

MediaTek will use Keysight’s 5G Protocol R&D Toolset for Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocol development, pre-silicon deployment, and full stack chipset validation across sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies using the latest 3GPP Release 15 5G NR standards.

Keysight’s 5G Protocol R&D Toolset is part of Keysight’s suite of network emulation solutions, the only seamless radio frequency (RF) and protocol workflow approach that enables chipset and device makers to efficiently develop and test evolving 5G standards and latest 4G standards in a single solution. These solutions accelerate the delivery of new 5G NR products by leveraging common development tools to eliminate siloed data sets and share design insights gained across each stage of the device lifecycle.

The development of 5G depends on up-to-date tools that let designers easily explore new signals, scenarios and topologies. Keysight's 5G solutions are ready to enable deeper insights as development evolves with the standard. In design and test, Keysight is helping industry leaders innovate across new and existing technologies as they transform ideas into reality. Click here to learn more.
