A radio frequency (RF) microwave circuit design, simulation and measurement solution that provides students with engineering essentials, practical skills and everyday application knowledge to help them successfully develop 5G and IoT wireless applications has been released by Keysight Technologies.
Keysight’s RF Microwave Teaching Solution focuses on the complete RF circuit design flow, from specification and simulation, to prototype building and validation, while operating on the 5G new radio 1.8-GHz downlink frequency. The core component of the solution is the U3851A RF microwave circuit design, simulation and measurement courseware.
It includes a modular prototype kit that utilises a 1.8GHz receiver module, lab sheets and assignments focused on the complete physical design spectrum. The courseware can be coupled with several of the company’s instruments, including oscilloscopes, network analysers, signal generators and spectrum analysers.
Keysight’s electronic design and automation software solutions - PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS), PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys), PathWave EM Design (EMPro) and PathWave System Design (SystemVue) - can also be used with the U3851A to ensure fast and accurate RF product design.
The RF Microwave Teaching Solution enables universities to deliver content covering the entire RF system design lifecycle, expand current engineering programs, integrate the lab courseware into current curriculum and ensure students are fully updated with the latest developments in engineering.
