Keysight Technologies has announced that Auden Techno Corporation has selected its 5G network emulation systems to deliver comprehensive regulatory certification services for a global 5G device market. The network emulation test rigs ensure that devices such as antenna modules comply to specifications mandated by certification bodies including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S., the radio equipment directive (RED) for CE marking in Europe and the National Communication Commission (NCC) in Taiwan.
Auden used Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions, based on the company's UXM 5G wireless test platform, to verify that a device operates within the limits established by certification bodies for specific absorption rate (SAR) (below 6 GHz) and absorbed power density (above 6 GHz). This ensures that the user is not exposed to excessive radio frequency (RF) energy when operating the device.
"As a result of working with Keysight, Auden can serve a global 5G device market with a set of comprehensive test services," said Eric Chen, vice president at A Test Lab, Auden's test and certification business. "Keysight's 5G solutions enable us to improve the level of confidence in products used to offer services designed to inform and connect consumers."
Keysight offers integrated OTA test equipment that combines network and channel emulation capabilities with a compact antenna test range (CATR) anechoic chamber. These systems support radio frequency (RF), signaling and radio resource management (RRM), as well as demodulation testing of devices in nearly any form factor in both frequency range 1 (FR1) and FR2. Users can also perform antenna pattern measurements, spurious emission testing, as well as validate the performance of a device over a wide temperature range.
