National Instruments launches mmWave 5G packaging and testing solution
- 2020-06-24-

[PConline Information] According to foreign media, National Instruments (National Instruments) recently demonstrated a four-site mmWave 5G package and test solution developed in cooperation with Tessolve and Johnstech. In response to the technical challenges related to the testing of 5G mmWave packages, this solution helps reduce the cost and risk of delays in listing for semiconductor manufacturers that produce mmWave 5G integrated circuits.

NI, Tessolve, and Johnstech jointly demonstrated a four-site mmWave 5G IC package component test solution, including the mmWave interface board designed and manufactured by Tessolve and the mmWave contactor rated up to 100 GHz designed by Johnstech.

A key element of this solution is the NI Semiconductor Test System (STS). The part of the demonstration included multiple access mmWave test STS configurations optimized for 5G power amplifiers, beamformers and transceivers. The main advantage of this show is modularity, allowing the use of modular mmWave radio heads to reuse software and baseband\/IF instruments to address current and future mmWave frequency bands of interest. Semiconductor manufacturers interested in this solution can find STS information on\/sts.

For more than 30 years, National Instruments (NI) has helped engineers and scientists in the field of test, control, and design solve the challenges encountered in the process from design, prototype to release. Through ready-to-use software, such as LabVIEW, and cost-effective modular hardware, NI helps engineers in various fields continue to innovate, reducing development costs while shortening product launch time. Today, NI provides multiple application options to 35,000 different customers all over the world. NI is headquartered in Austin, Texas, USA, with branches in more than 50 countries and a total of more than 7,100 employees. For the past twelve consecutive years, "Fortune" magazine selected NI as one of the 100 best companies to work in the United States. Every year, NI reinvests 16% of its total revenue into research and development. There are 208 new products developed every year, almost reaching the level of one every working day. As one of the largest overseas branches, NI China has a complete product sales, technical support, after-sales service and a strong R&D team.[1]
