Keysight Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate the latest design, simulation and test solutions for wireless communications and aerospace & defense at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS2016), Booth 1239, San Francisco, Calif., May 24-26, 2016.
Keysight's hardware, software and technical expertise help engineers and designers gain insight into the toughest component and system engineering challenges. This is accomplished by providing solutions for aerospace & defense (radar, electronic warfare, satellite and NewSpace) and wireless communications (5G, Internet of Things, 802.11ad and 802.11ax). Keysight will showcase 18 of its partners in the Keysight Community surrounding the Keysight booth. More information about the Keysight Community and its partners is available at

Keysight's application solutions are built on a foundation of common building blocks that include software and hardware. The software covers simulation, waveform creation and analysis, and runs on multiple hardware platforms to address a range of customer needs. The robust hardware portfolio supports measurement needs up to millimeter-wave bands and includes signal analyzers, wideband oscilloscopes, network analyzers, arbitrary waveform generators and vector signal generators.

"Keysight's solutions help companies make their RF and microwave designs real," said Mark Pierpoint, vice president and general manager of Keysight's Internet Infrastructure Solutions Group. "At IMS, designers and engineers will have the opportunity to experience first-hand Keysight's solutions and services, and to gain a better understanding of how our solutions span the ecosystem at nearly every step of the design to manufacturing lifecycle. Our goal is to ensure our customers meet, or exceed, their time-to-market goals."                                                                    

Keysight will feature the following new products and application solutions:

  • X-Series signal analyzers—featuring a streamlined multi-touch interface, integrated 1 GHz analysis bandwidth up to 50 GHz, the widest real-time streaming up to 255 MHz bandwidth, and industry-best phase noise performance in all models
  • CX3300 Series of Device Current Waveform Analyzers—enabling the visualization of previously unmeasurable, low-level current waveforms. The CX3300 series is used in the design of IoT devices and ultra-low power modules and provide 150 pA minimum measureable current, 1 GHz maximum sampling, 14-bit or 16-bit wide dynamic range, and 200 MHz maximum bandwidth
  • E-Band Testbed Solution—enabling the generation and analysis of wide-bandwidth millimeter-wave signals for 5G and other emerging communications applications
  • Multiport measurement capabilities—for wireless component and other types of multiport RF/microwave components used in aerospace & defense, radar, and satellite systems
  • Keysight EEsof EDA SystemVue 2016 release, Phased Array Library and 5G Baseband Verification Library

In addition, Keysight will demonstrate the following products and solutions at the symposium.
