Keysight Technologies, Inc., a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that the company has established a joint 5G test laboratory in Shenzhen, China with Oppo. The new lab uses Keysight’s 5G platform to help verify the performance of new 5G new radio (NR) designs, a key activity that will help the Chinese-based smartphone manufacturer expand its global market presence.

Recently, Samsung Electronics also announced that its 5G communication solutions are in mass production. The 5G multi-mode chipsets include the previously-introduced Exynos Modem 5100 as well as a new single-chip radio frequency transceiver, the Exynos RF 5500, and the supply modulator solution, the Exynos SM 5800, all supporting 5G New Radio (5G-NR) sub-6-gigahertz (GHz) spectrum and legacy radio access technologies.

Earlier this year, LG also developed its own artificial intelligence chip (AI Chip) with a proprietary LG Neural Engine. LG said that the chip helps better mimic the neural network of the human brain to greatly improve the processing of deep learning algorithms.
