Mar 2008
Cleveland-based test and measurement products maker Keithley Instruments Inc. today announced a wireless technology partnership with the Institute of Mobile Communications (IMC) of Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu, China. The IMC and Keithley will work on joint research projects to expand existing radio frequency (RF) applications as well as research emerging wireless applications and technologies, particularly in multiple-input, multiple-output (Mimo) applications. Mimo is an emerging wireless communication technology that allows for more data throughput in mobile devices without the need for additional bandwidth by using multiple radios for both transmitting and receiving data. The newest wireless standards are based on Mimo, Keithley said. The IMC, in partnership with Keithley, will be able to establish an advanced research Mimo platform. “Information-theory-based coding and transmissions play an important role in the future of communications and information technology,” said Pingzhi Fan, PhD, director of information coding and transmission at the IMC. “I am confident that both the IMC and Keithley will benefit from the establishment of this joint lab. It is an excellent opportunity for IMC to strengthen our relationship with industry, accelerate important academic contributions, and improve our practical development and testing capability.”



GLOSSARY
photonics
