Qualcomm to support LitePoint’s 5G test solutions development

Testing Small Cell Products

LitePoint, a provider of wireless test solutions, has signed an agreement with Qualcomm to support LitePoint’s development of its 5G test solutions for the Qualcomm 5G RAN Platform for Small Cells (FSM 100xx) to accelerate small cell deployment.

Small cells are crucial for mobile operator 5G network deployments, as they are designed to provide increased coverage and uniform 5G user experiences while delivering high data rate and low latencies. Specifically, 5G small cells offer superior power consumption and performance while enabling greater coverage and throughput in high-density, metropolitan areas and growing, indoor enterprise environments.

To address the emerging 5G small cell market and accelerating 5G deployments in outdoor metropolitan and indoor enterprise locations, LitePoint offers its 5G test solutions, which have been updated to provide comprehensive non-signaling test coverage of small cell base stations.

“This 5G small cell engagement is built on longstanding, trusted and successful cooperation between the companies for many years and leverages their in-depth expertise to enable 5G small cells,” said Rex Chen, Director of Strategic Business Development at LitePoint.

“We are pleased to work with Qualcomm to support product design through manufacturing test for its 5G small cell solution.”

IQgig-5Gb

LitePoint’s IQgig-5G is a fully integrated, versatile multiband millimeter wave (mmWave) non-signalling test solution and the first of its kind to support all 5G FR2 frequencies within the 23-45GHz frequency range. All signal generation, analysis, processing, and RF front-end switching are self-contained inside a single chassis.

The one-box design makes it simple to set up, use and maintain in order to achieve reliable measurements. The test system enables small cell waveform generation and analysis for 5G radio technologies, provides an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and allows for real-time RF parametric analysis for small cell products.

The IQgig-5G is the simplest solution for testing 5G mmWave products as all the required hardware is self-contained inside a single chassis, enabling the source and measure capabilities to be calibrated at the instrument front panel. This full hardware integration significantly reduces the test set up complexity and improves efficiency yielding the following benefits:

  • Simplest test fixturing set up
  • Simple software regression set up with a single S/W interface
  • Acceleration of measurements into the range of minutes instead of hours thanks to the calibrated front panel interface

“We are pleased to be working with LitePoint to support the rapidly growing 5G industry with enhanced mobile broadband connectivity by improving network coverage, capacity, performance and power efficiency through our advanced 5G RAN solutions,” said Victor Abramsky, vice president, engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

“By working with industry-leaders like LitePoint, we can accelerate the deployment of 5G small cells globally by providing customers with advanced 5G technologies.”

The Qualcomm 5G RAN Platform for Small Cells (FSM 100xx) is the industry’s first 5G NR solution for small cells. The 10nm solution supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum bands. This platform is designed to support original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to reuse both software and hardware designs across sub-6GHz and mmWave products.
