The new mmWave solution covers frequencies from 24 to 44 GHz and from 57 to 70 GHz, allows high multi-site parallelism and also offers the flexibility required for multi-band mmWave frequencies. Based on a novel mmWave card housing with up to eight mmWave instruments, this comparatively low-cost ATE solution, according to the manufacturer, offers performance at the level of high-end bench systems.
The scalable broadband test functionality of the system enables full modulation and de-modulation for ultra-wideband (UWB), 5G-NR mmWave up to 1 GHz, WiGig (802.11ad/ay) up to 2 GHz and antenna-in-package (AiP) as well as beamforming and over-the-air tests.
The solution is architecturally unique because it provides up to 64 bidirectional mmWave ports based on a modular concept. This allows not only the use of different 5G and WiGig frequency modules, but also the inclusion of new modules as new frequency bands are introduced worldwide.
Advantest will be exhibiting the mmWave card housing together with the V93000 A-Class Test Head at its booth. In addition, visitors will receive live demonstrations of the Advantest EVA (Evolutionary Value Added) measurement system and CloudTesting Services (CTS).
