The aim s to create wireless communications and test concepts for both Chinese network operators and other global operators.
Unigroup Spreadtrum & RDA had already selected Rohde & Schwarz for 2G, 3G and 4G, and now the two companies are continuing their collaboration on current key technologies.
Rohde & Schwarz will support Spreadtrum in 5G sub-6 GHz and mmWave chipset design and development.
The aim is to speed up the development of the 5G test platform – from algorithms, ESL, physical layer design and FPGA simulation to protocol stack.
For 5G mobile phone R&D, Spreadtrum will test devices for mutual verification using the radiocommunications tester from Rohde & Schwarz.
Additional parts of the agreement include testing in the broadcasting field.
