Unigroup Spreadtrum & RDA is a core subsidiary of Tsinghua Unigroup and a leading fabless semiconductor company committed to the independent R&D of core chipsets in mobile communications and IoT. Its products cover mobile chipset platforms supporting 2G / 3G / 4G communication standards, RF chipsets, wireless connection chipsets, security chipsets, TV chipsets, and image sensor chipsets.
Keysight’s test and measurement systems enable Spreadtrum to validate their 5G RFIC and baseband IC designs across the workflow from pre-silicon to conformance and mobile operator acceptance. The common software tools and comprehensive suite of network emulation solutions help chipset and device manufacturers accelerate prototyping of new devices and modems to validate RF parametric, protocol and functional performance.
In the past, Unigroup Spreadtrum & RDA has worked in close collaboration with Keysight on LTE, LTE-Advanced, NarrowBand IoT, Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO), and wideband Digital Predistortion (DPD). Keysight’s ability to cover the entire product design lifecycle from system level simulations, to high-speed digital testing and functional measurements, allows Spreadtrum to streamline its workflow and accelerate time-to-market.
Last year, Keysight and Spreadtrum announced the unveiling of a joint innovation center to further the development of new technology design and test services for mobile devices. The technology innovation center enabled both companies to accelerate 5G technologies which are instrumental in developing high performance 5G chipset solutions for applications.
