The emergence of next-generation 5G, WiFi protocols, and automotive radar have pushed ICs into extreme frequency bands. High-volume 6GHz production test cells are being modified to up-convert, mix, down-convert, source, and measure for both cmWave (3GHz to 30GHz) and mmWave (30GHz to >100GHz) frequencies. Test interface hardware has now become a key differentiator for bringing these next-generation applications to market, with relatively few solutions available.
