5G presents unique test challenges to engineers having to test RFICs that operate on wider, highly complex 5G waveforms using new spectrum below 6 GHz and at millimeter wave frequencies.  Engineers also face new device architectures like hybrid beamformers, and new test requirements for integrated devices like Antenna-in-Package (AiP) with lengthy over-the-air (OTA) test plans. This presentation introduces the characteristics and challenges of testing new 5G RFIC devices, and presents solutions for fast characterization, validation, and manufacturing test.
