innovation in wireless transceivers for next-generation communications.

This state-of-the-art laboratory at Aarhus University will enable
advanced education, research and innovation in wireless transceivers for
future emerging data communications, sensing and imaging applications.

Keysight equipment deployed in the new laboratory includes a N5247A
PNA-X Non-Linear Vector Network Analyzer
with ultra-low-noise
receiver and several extension modules; a signal source analyzer with
microwave down-converter and extension modules; and a large dedicated
set of performance cabling, devices and units supporting frequencies of
up to 110 GHz. The equipment was supplied to the university through
Keysight’s Technology Partner Altoo Measurement Science.

“We welcome the 6 million Danish Kroner investment from Keysight and the
Poul Due Jensen Foundation (PDJF) in the Wireless Transceivers Research
Laboratory at Aarhus University,” said Prof. Thomas Skjødeberg
Toftegaard, Head of the Department of Engineering. “This research
laboratory will ensure that the research group and students led by Prof.
Domenico Zito continue the excellent world-class research and education
in designing next-generation wireless transceivers for future emerging
communication and sensing technologies.”

“The Poul Due Jensen Foundation is on the frontline for designing the
future of engineering, science and technology,” said Kim Nøhr Skibsted,
Executive Director of the Poul Due Jensen Foundation. “The Department of
Engineering at AU is a key institution for us and we are committed to
supporting its mission to build an elite engineering department in
Denmark with world-class leaders in education and research, such as
Prof. Zito.”

“Keysight has always been committed to working with and supporting
leading researchers and academic institutions, to help educate the next
generation of engineers,” said Giovanni D’Amore, Keysight RF& Microwave
Market Initiative Manager – EMEAI. “Our participation with this research
lab will help students and researchers to accelerate research and
innovation through the use of Keysight’s leading-edge solutions. Aarhus
University has a world-class reputation and it is a privilege to be
involved in supporting this new facility.”

“Our research laboratory, equipped with a unique set of Keysight
instruments for high-frequency low-noise measurements up to 110 GHz, is
of key importance for our researchers and students,” said Prof. Domenico
Zito. “We are extremely grateful to Keysight for their donation in CAD
tools and instruments, and to the PDJF for their donation to support the
establishment of the Wireless Transceivers Research Laboratory, as a
world-wide centre of excellence in low-noise high-frequency measurements
dedicated to research and development of next-generation wireless
transceivers.”
