Optimize Throughput and Cost for mmWave 5G Device Functional Test

Test engineers always have faced tough new test-coverage challenges. Those introduced by 5G measurements at mmWave are no exception, as they require over-the-air (OTA) radiated test solutions. But never have these pressures seen today’s intense time-to-market, manufacturing volume, and operational expectations! A solution that meets these demands must:


  • ​Ensure complete 5G NR functional test coverage 

  • Decrease cycle time with fast speed and multi-DUT testing 

  • Provide high-power, bidirectional ports to avoid cumbersome external switches

  • Scale and adapt efficiently to meet new and changing test requirements  

  • Offer a low price per channel and small footprint

NI’s mmWave 5G Functional Test Station

  • ​NI systems and services can help you design, develop, and test your 5G mmWave devices. 

  • NI supports your business with global services to ensure uptime and safeguard operational stability.

  • The PXI Vector Signal Transceiver can provide mmWave fast, accurate measurements at a high channel density, reducing cost per channel.

  • NI software, such as RFmx, speeds development so that you can deploy custom systems faster at a lower risk of delay.

Solution Advantages

​“We already see the rapidly growing 5G mmWave opportunity and have been involved in multiple projects for mmWave test with the highest-quality contactor technology. With NI, we see more opportunity in this area, especially in manufacturing test, where they provide excellent mmWave measurements with ATE test speed.”
