Keysight Technologies announced that NewRadio Technology Co., Ltd. has selected Keysight's advanced signal source and analyzer measurement solutions to speed validation of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology.

NewRadio Technology, a developer of SoC solutions and integrated systems, selected Keysight’s vector transceiver (VXT) in PXI formatsignal generatorsignal analyzer, and vector network analyzer (VNA) to validate the performance of the transmitter and receiver of the company's UWB SoC solution.

The UWB designs are used for applications that include 5G smart phones, IoT devices, AR/VR, among others.

UWB technology, which is based on IEEE 802.15.4z standards, enables new applications such as RT spatial context to mobile devices, advanced ranging and location-based services as well as seamless and secure point-to-point (peer-to-peer) services.

Working in collaboration, the two companies are helping each other to accelerate the commercialization of standards based UWB technology.

Per a company press release, the IEEE 802.15.4z specifications, promoted by the UWB Alliance, has increased integrity and accuracy of the standards' ranging measurements and made precision positioning a key feature.

Both companies work closely with both the UWB Alliance and the FiRa Consortium, an organization that works to develop and adopt seamless user experiences using interoperable UWB technologies.
