Keysight and Aview team up on millimeter wave radar lab
Keysight and Aview have joined forces to establish a millimeter wave radar laboratory to be located in Suzhou, China designed to help promote the development of autonomous driving technologies.
Millimeter wave radar is described as a critical sensor for the realisation of autonomous driving. The development of millimeter wave automotive radar must minimise propagation loss, phase noise and frequency response errors, as well as the impact of noise on the evaluation module (EVM). As a result, testing millimeter waves, especially the 76-81 GHz frequency band, requires a fast, accurate and reliable test solution. Aview is committed to the development of high-performance automated line and test systems for millimeter wave radars, cameras and other components for image sensing applications, as well as providing the related research and development and testing. Keysight will provide the platform for millimeter wave radar spanning R&D performance verification to production testing, speeding technological innovation in the automotive industry and enabling solutions to be quickly introduced to the market. "The establishment of a joint millimeter wave radar laboratory by Keysight Technologies and Aview is a win-win initiative for both companies and their customers,” says Pan Qitao, regional sales manager for East China at Keysight, in a press release. “Both will work collaboratively together to help the automotive industry to quickly introduce innovative products to the market and support the realization phase of autonomous driving." "The laboratory jointly established by Keysight and Aview will enhance the technical strength of millimeter wave radar, while supporting the development of the autonomous driving market,” adds He Hongxin, general manager of Aview Technology. “Keysight’s advanced test solutions, combined with the overall automated assembly technology and integration capabilities of Aview, is a strong alliance that promotes and supports the development of the automotive millimeter wave radar industry."
