Keysight Technologies, Inc. has announced that Keysight and Aview have joined forces to establish a mmWave radar laboratory to be located in Suzhou, China designed to help promote the development of autonomous driving technologies.

mmWave radar is a critical sensor for the realization of autonomous driving. The development of mmWave automotive radar must minimize propagation loss, phase noise and frequency response errors, as well as the impact of noise on the evaluation module. As a result, testing mmWaves, especially the 76 to 81 GHz frequency band, requires a fast, accurate and reliable test solution. Keysight's radar target simulator covers a frequency range of 76 to 81 GHz with accurate and superior performance, providing a repeatable mmWave radar emulation function with flexible distance range definition.

Aview is committed to the development of high performance automated line and test systems for mmWave radars, cameras and other components for image sensing applications, as well as providing the related research and development and testing. Keysight will provide the platform for mmWave radar spanning R&D performance verification to production testing, speeding technological innovation in the automotive industry and enabling solutions to be quickly introduced to the market.

"The establishment of a joint mmWave radar laboratory by Keysight Technologies and Aview is a win-win initiative for both companies and their customers," stated Pan Qitao, regional sales manager for East China at Keysight. "Both will work collaboratively together to help the automotive industry to quickly introduce innovative products to the market and support the realization phase of autonomous driving."

"The laboratory jointly established by Keysight and Aview will enhance the technical strength of mmWave radar, while supporting the development of the autonomous driving market," said He Hongxin, general manager of Aview Technology. "Keysight's advanced test solutions, combined with the overall automated assembly technology and integration capabilities of Aview, is a strong alliance that promotes and supports the development of the automotive mmWave radar industry."
