Keysight PROPSIM FS16 channel emulation system is the latest technology to have been introduced to accelerate 5G development and commercialisation.
PROPSIM FS16 enables users to verify the performance of 5G new radio (NR) devices with support for ultra-wide bandwidths in the mmWave frequency spectrum, beamforming technology and multiple-antenna configurations.
The 5G channel emulation system extends Keysight’s family of 5G channel emulators, widely used for benchmarking and validating devices and base stations. PROPSIM FS16 helps chipset and device makers to cost-effectively and confidently validate the real-world performance of 5G designs using Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and massive MIMO antenna technology for high data rate applications. It is housed in a compact and modular benchtop 5G NR radio frequency (RF) channel emulator with scalable fading capacity and intuitive software tools.
The new tool complements the PROPSIM F64 channel emulation product, which 5G wireless equipment makers use to address ultra-high fading capacity needs. PROPSIM FS16 supports the 5G NR frequency bands and bandwidths as specified by 3GPP. It seamlessly integrates with Keysight’s 5G network emulation tools to address performance requirements that extend beyond conformance testing mandated by 3GPP, the global mobile standards organisation.
