Keysight Introduces New Method to Accelerate Power Amplifier Digital Pre-Distortion Test Speeds
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) introduces the new Iterative Learning Control (ILC) test method that significantly shortens Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD) test times for power amplifiers.
Power amplifiers (PA) are a core component in wireless communication devices. Characterization of these components is a critical but time-consuming task that can take hours or even days during the research & development (R&D) phase. By shortening the time it takes to complete the design and validation process, power amplifier manufacturers are able to accelerate their time-to-market.
Keysight meets this need by introducing the innovative ILC DPD test method that shortens DPD test time to minutes and accelerates R&D time from test validation to product design and optimization. As a part of Keysight's comprehensive High Frequency Measurement Solution portfolio, the ILC test method runs on the N9055EM0E Power Amplifier Measurement Application and uses the VXG Vector Signal Generator and PXA Signal Analyzer to provide industry-leading test performance for signal generation and analysis.
The ILC DPD test method offers the following benefits:
Dr. Mong Lin, President at Hexawave, said: "Power amplifiers are critical in communication systems. Our HWA1330 power amplifier is an industry leader and Keysight's innovative test method allows us to rapidly and reliably validate our 5G New Radio power amplifier designs to stay at the forefront of the industry."
Peng Cao, Vice President and General Manager of Keysight's Wireless Devices and Solutions Group, said: "Keysight is pleased to strengthen our technical leadership in power amplifier characterization by introducing the new ILC DPD test method. It's a great example of how our experts keep finding innovative solutions to meet our customers' testing challenges."
