Analog Devices, Inc and Keysight Technologies, Inc are collaborating to advance the adoption of phased array technology. This technology is crucial to realising ubiquitous connectivity and sensing by simplifying development stages associated with producing satellite communication, radar, and phased array systems.

Analog Devices' family of phased array platforms are employed to speed up customers' beamforming developments by supplying a total solution that can then be tested and calibrated with Keysight phased array test solutions. This collaboration joins together the whole ecosystem by aiming to offer a total design, test, and calibration solution. Phased array antennas are the enablers of next-generation wireless communication applications, signal intelligence and earth observation applications.

"We are pleased to collaborate with Analog Devices to bring innovative phased array technology to a wide variety of new customers and their use cases," said Peng Cao, vice president and general manager for Keysight's Wireless Test Group. "Keysight's state-of-the-art measurement solutions have transformed phased array test times from minutes down to seconds. Working closely with Analog Devices, we have demonstrated a 70 times faster measurement speed while maintaining excellent accuracy. Bringing together the beamforming advances of Analog Devices and measurement innovation from Keysight, our customers will now have the opportunity for a complete, end-to-end solution for phased arrays which will accelerate time to market and deliver exceptional performance."

"Our customers are demanding more than just a beamforming IC, but rather a total system-level solution with the test and calibration of the array. By utilising ADI's system platforms, the collaboration between ADI and Keysight intends to help accelerate the adoption of phased array platforms for higher data rate communications and sensing solutions," noted Bryan Goldstein, vice president of Aerospace and Defence at Analog Devices.
