GTS has become one of the main exhibition projects in Hangzhou

of this “Innovation and Innovation Week”

Adhere to original innovation and create a “Chinese ruler” of international standards for 5G testing

At present, 5G is becoming an international hot topic. In the 13th Five-Year Plan, the Chinese government described 5G as a “strategic emerging industry” and a “new area of growth”. In the face of increasingly fierce international competition, major scientific and technological innovation achievements are the most important and sharp weapon of the country. They must be firmly in their own hands, and must rely on self-reliance and independent innovation.

The reporter learned that the selection of the “5G high-precision and fast measurement system” project for this general test is an excellent project discovered by the Shenzhen Association for Science and Technology and the Bao’an District Association for Science and Technology during the construction of the tutoring academician (expert) workstation, and later approved by the China Association for Science and Technology. It was recommended as a candidate project for the National Innovation and Entrepreneurship Week in Hangzhou, and finally passed the defense and review of the expert group of the China Association for Science and Technology and the National Development and Reform Commission, and was successfully selected. The original research results and products of Universal Testing have strongly promoted the development of the industry:

International testing standards

The Over-the-Air (OTA) measurement system is a “ruler” and a standardized tool for measuring the performance of wireless communication devices. Under the leadership of Qi Yihong, an academician of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, Universal Testing has always adhered to original innovation, and has continued to increase R&D investment for many years in order to create an international standard ruler. The Radiated Two-Stage (RTS) method invented by Universal Test became the international standard for 3GPP wireless terminal measurement in 2018.

International Certification International Market

Universal Test’s strong R&D team transforms years of theoretical research into technological breakthroughs and product innovations, and is guided by market demand to complete the transition from academic research to industrial applications. The products cover 4G SISO/MIMO, 5G mmWave and Sub-6 GHz measuring system. With international testing standards and internationally certified products, it has successfully entered the international market and brought high-end international customers.

In the future era of the Internet of Everything, wireless air interface testing technology will be widely used in autonomous vehicles, next-generation mobile communications, unmanned aerial vehicles, the Internet of Things, and various aircraft, ships, and ground radars.

Participate in the upsurge of innovation and entrepreneurship, from theoretical breakthroughs to products to the international market

Academician of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, member of the founding team of BlackBerry mobile phone hardware, inventor of modern smartphone antennas, has more than 500 patents and papers around the world, patents and technologies are widely used in mobile terminals… These honors are very dazzling, and Qi Yihong can see the cloud In the light of the wind, he resolutely chose to return to China. In addition to his family and country feelings, he was also optimistic about China’s future development and prospects.

Returning to China to start a business: “Academician-level partners” form a group to return to China as “officers”

In 1995, Qi Yihong, who was a visiting scholar at McMaster University in Canada, was invited to join RIM, a BlackBerry manufacturer, to specialize in research and development. During the 15-year service period, he witnessed RIM’s development from a small company with 25 people. Step to the top of the industry pyramid. The mobile phone development behind this all has the figure of Qi Yihong.

In 2005, the research and development of BlackBerry smartphones entered a critical stage. Qi Yihong uses multi-resonant antenna technology to build the antenna at the bottom of the mobile phone, and solves the problem of safety and high radiation in one fell swoop. This invention not only brought at least 200 million US dollars of patent income to RIM in two years, but also rewrote the industrial standard of the world’s mobile phone antenna industry. Since then, almost all smartphones have adopted the “antenna down” layout.

In 2010, Qi Yihong retired from BlackBerry, resolutely returned to China, organized a team to prepare a project, and planned to reinvent the world in the basic theory of wireless technology.

In 2012, Shenzhen General Test System Co., Ltd. was incorporated in Shenzhen. The original intention of starting a business is to transform theoretical breakthroughs into innovative products and has gathered top experts in related fields such as communications, electromagnetic fields and antennas, and electromagnetic materials. The team began to gather together for technology research and development before returning to China. In the same year, they returned to China with a relatively mature cutting-edge innovative technology research result, started a business, and turned the research and development results into products in China.

In 2014, the general testing team participated in the National Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition (Shenzhen Division) with a sub-project of the R&D results and won the first prize.

Settled in Shenzhen: Shenzhen’s most innate innovative genes

This team returned to China to start a business with innovative technology projects with the world’s top core technologies, and olive branches were thrown to them from all over the country. Why did you choose Shenzhen and set your heart on it? Qi Yihong replied, “Shenzhen is different from other cities. The government and entrepreneurs come for ‘innovation’ and have a consensus. The atmosphere created by this consensus cannot be replicated. Here, the government is at the forefront for enterprises. Provide a illuminating lamp, support and accompany silently behind the back, enterprises can move forward freely according to their own ideas and routes. The government has a ‘moisturizing and silent’ attitude towards enterprises, and he feels from the heart that the government is paying attention Cultivate and accompany the growth of enterprises.”

Ambition: The company’s output value will achieve an explosive leap

It is in such an innovative and entrepreneurial environment that Universal Testing became the first OTA system provider in China to obtain international certification in 2014; so far, Universal Testing has applied for more than 100 patents, and has nearly 50 domestic and international patents. Landed in Shenzhen; launched a breakthrough miniaturized OTA rapid measurement system, which comprehensively surpassed/replaced imported test equipment, and entered the international market including the United States and South Korea for the first time as a Chinese brand. Currently, the top three mobile phone companies in the world are all in a test system using GTS. Major mobile phone manufacturers such as Huawei, ZTE, Xiaomi, and Lenovo have also become customers of Universal Testing, and have made positive contributions to the national industry to become bigger, stronger and better!

Qi Yihong revealed that the OTA test market is in great demand now, but the company is still controlling the production and sales of products, because they are still accumulating energy, and they need to innovate and upgrade existing products, and some cutting-edge scientific research results are still transformation test. It is expected that in 2020 or 2021, the company’s output value will achieve an explosive leap.

Qi Yihong said, “5G will benefit all mankind, and the general test should create a ‘Chinese ruler’ of the 5G international test standard.” It should be said that the universal test is not only a technical success, but also a personal entrepreneurial success, but also a success story in the context of the rise of China!
