Keysight supplies 5G virtual drive testing tools to MediaTek

Keysight Technologies is supplying its 5G virtual drive testing (VDT) Toolset to MediaTek to accelerate end-to-end data throughput performance validation of multimode 5G New Radio (NR) Devices. MediaTek is able to validate the performance of new 5G products under typical mobile user conditions such as video streaming, web browsing, and voice calls without running consuming field tests. MediaTek currently uses Keysight’s VDT Toolset to validate 4G devices for operation in high speed train (HST) scenarios.

"We’re delighted to extend our collaboration with MediaTek to support their efforts in validating 5G devices by simulating real world conditions in the lab," said Janne Kolu, head of VDT solutions at Keysight Technologies. "Real-world emulation of networks is essential for successful 5G deployments. Keysight’s channel emulation expertise combined with our innovative software-based 5G test solutions is the ideal solution for bridging the gap between lab and field testing."

MediaTek announces 56G PAM4 SerDes

MediaTek announced a new 56G SerDes ASIC with PAM4 signaling and based on its 7nm FinFET process technology. The company said its high-performance DSP-based design demonstrates best-in-class power efficiency, performance and die-area. The first partner products adopting MediaTek's 56G PAM4 SerDes IP are already in development and will be available during the second-half of 2018.

MediaTek's SerDes portfolio now ranges from 10G, 28G, 56G through to 112G available for ASIC designs.

"The ASIC business has changed over time and we see new opportunities with IoT, communications and other consumer spaces that are demanding unique ASIC solutions. We have longstanding expertise in the ASIC side of the industry that goes along with our breadth of chipset portfolios in mobile, home and auto," said Jerry Yu, MediaTek Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Intelligent Devices Business Group. "Our newest ASIC solution with silicon-proven IP available on 7nm and 16nm can be seamlessly integrated into these cutting edge ASIC products."

Mediatek Unveils Ultra Power-Saving Mobile Processor

MediaTek introduced an "ultra power-saving" mobile processor for the next generation of smartphones.

The MediaTek Helio P20, which promises 25 percent better power efficiency than its predecessor, leverages 16nm process technology and is the world’s first SoC to support low power double data rate random access memory – LPDDR4X.  The processor features upgraded CPU and GPU capabilities with its True Octa-Core architecture clocked up to 2.3GHz, taking full advantage of ARM Cortex A53 cores. A new Mali T880 graphics unit is clocked at 900MHz.

The MediaTek Helio P20 integrates an LTE Cat.6 modem with 2x20 carrier aggregation for 300/50Mbps top data speeds. The SoC supports global Dual-SIM Dual Standby. For regions where GSM is no longer available, the SoC will have simultaneous standby on WCDMA network. Additionally, MediaTek Helio P20 supports LTE multimedia broadcast and multicast service. This allows mobile devices to receive HD video content over LTE.

For improved processing power and optimum battery performance, MediaTek Helio P20 integrates LPDDR4X, providing 70 percent more bandwidth than the LPDDR3 and 50 percent power savings by lowering supply voltage to 0.6v, resulting in a quicker, smoother user experience for camera, video and gaming apps.

“MediaTek designed the MediaTek Helio P20 to meet today’s consumer demand for sleek, powerful yet highly power efficient mobile devices,” said Jeffrey Ju, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operating Officer at MediaTek.

DOCOMO Partners with Mediatek on 5G Access

NTT DOCOMO is working with MediaTek of Taiwan to jointly develop and conduct trials of technology that will enable increased data capacity for 5G systems.

The trials, which will be conducted in either Taiwan or Japan from 2017 onwards, will develop a communication system to combine non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) wireless access technologies from DOCOMO and multi-user interference cancellation (MUIC) technologies from MediaTek. NOMA multiplexes signals at a base-station transmitter to leverage the increased signal processing capacity of a user device to cancel interference among multiplexed user signals. MUIC utilizes receiver antennas to remove interference from other users and increase capacity when a base station transmits a signal to a number of users at the same time.

The two companies will also study a new 5G Radio Access Technology and chipsets required for 5G devices, with joint trials to be carried out from 2018 onwards.

"DOCOMO is excited to work with MediaTek, an innovator with expertise in the technical requirements of 5G," said Seizo Onoe, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at DOCOMO. "The potential opportunities for 5G to enable people to connect with devices are endless. We're eager to see our 5G network inspire innovative inventions to benefit technology, life and business."
