Keysight Technologies and Marvin Test Solutions Accelerate mmWave Semiconductor Manufacturing

Beijing, December 12, 2019 – Keysight Technologies (NYSE: KEYS) today announced a collaboration with Marvin Test Solutions (MTS), a provider of functional test solutions, to develop a fast and accurate test platform for 5G semiconductor manufacturing. Keysight Technologies is a leading technology company dedicated to helping enterprises, service providers and government customers accelerate innovation and create a secure, connected world.

Both parties work together to advance the development of beamforming integrated circuit (IC) test technology to help semiconductor manufacturers accelerate the production of high-performance 5G integrated circuits. Marvin Corporation provides superior test solutions for the military, aerospace and manufacturing markets, and its solutions have been widely deployed around the world and are highly trusted by customers. The company achieved accurate and fast measurements by integrating a Keysight PXIe vector network analyzer (VNA) in its TS-960e-5G mmWave test system.

“MTS leverages Keysight’s proprietary measurement technology and expertise in beamforming integrated circuit test to help leading semiconductor manufacturers extremely Dramatically improve production yields while significantly reducing costs. The highly scalable Keysight PXIe VNA, paired with MTS’ scalable open-architecture mmWave test platform and ATEasy™ software development kit, delivers the measurement performance customers have been waiting for, And enables us to provide simpler testing to global manufacturing companies.”

Keysight’s new M980xA series of network analyzers are highly scalable to meet the testing needs of multiport components, front-end modules (FEMs) and base stations that utilize beamforming technology. Mobile operators are deploying beamforming technology in hopes of extending cellular coverage and enabling higher data rates, ultimately improving the reliability and efficiency of mmWave 5G networks. To ensure the efficiency and reliability of 5G mmWave communications, critical components in beamformer ICs need to be strictly enforced under linear and nonlinear conditions throughout the entire workflow from design and verification to manufacturing. performance test.

Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Wireless Test Group, said, “Our work with Marvin Test Solutions is a testament to the scalable production testing of beamforming solutions using Keysight’s PXI VNA. Our beamforming IC test solution uses comprehensive component and system-level simulation tools to provide high-accuracy measurements in mmWave frequency bands. We are excited to provide this solution to shape the future of mmWave production test for 5G contribute.”
