Keysight assists MediaTek to release test solution for MT6735 chipset

Keysight Technologies has assisted MediaTek to release a manufacturing test solution for the MediaTek MT6735 mobile chipset — based on the KeysightE6640 EXM wireless test set.

Released in October of 2014, the MT6735 LTE 64-bit mobile SoC platform with integrated modem, RF and CorePilot technology aimed at global operators for “Super-mid” mid-range smartphone market. The MT6735 builds upon MediaTek’s existing LTE platform by adding CDMA2000 to create WorldMode modem capability.

Jeffrey Ju, senior vice president of MediaTek, said: “The Keysight E6640 EXM helps our customers to ramp up production smoothly, giving them shorter manufacture testing times and reduced cost.”

The Keysight E6640 EXM non-signaling wireless testing platform supports multiple cellular and wireless connectivity standards.

Recent EXM enhancements include advanced sequencing of multiple WLAN formats within one test sequence to enable faster WLAN device production test; and speed-optimized firmware to help manufacturers enhance wireless device test plan efficiency and increase production throughput. The addition of DECT, PHS and Zigbee support adds to the EXM’s already long list of multi-format measurement capabilities.

The EXM key features:

Up to four independent TRX modules supporting up to 16 connections without the use of external fixtures or switching

Multi-format measurement application support including LTE/LTE-Advanced, HSPA+, W-CDMA, cdma2000, GSM/EDGE/Evo,
TD-SCDMA, PHS, DECT, WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n/j/p/ac, Bluetooth BR/EDR/LE, GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Bei Dou, QZSS), Mobile WiMAX, Zigbee, PHS and digital video

# Independent source and analyzer on each TRX

# Four RF ports configured as two full-duplex and two half-duplex ports or four full–duplex ports

# Support for up to 32 devices-under-test through customizable multi-port adapter (MPA) technology

# 160-MHz bandwidth, up to 6-GHz frequency range, best-in-class ±0.2 dB power-level accuracy at 3.8 GHz, and -43 dB receiver

# EVM noise floor for 802.11ac
