Singapore’s Nanyang University tests 6G technology with tools from Keysight

The 6G test bench aims to validate transmitter-receiver circuits in Teraherz frequencies using an innovative electronic and photonic approach.

The Center for Disruptive Photonic Technologies at Nanyang University (NTU) in Singapore has been equipped with test and measurement solutions from the American supplier Keysight Technologies, as part of the development of 6G technologies based on Terahertz frequencies.

This research laboratory works on the validation of transmitter-receiver circuits in the THz band, following a unique hybrid approach that combines electronics and photonics. The approach aims to design mobile devices supporting data rates of several terabits per second, on which are based the emerging applications of 6G such as augmented reality, holographic communication oredge computing multiple access (MEC).

The implemented 6G testbed combines an arbitrary waveform generator, an optical modulation analyzer, a network analyzer and an analog signal generator from Keysight, with small form factor up and down converters supplied by Virginia Diodes . The set works with the PathWave software of the American supplier for the analysis of vector signals.
