LONDON, UK- University College London (UCL) and Aeroflex Limited, a subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced the official opening of the UCL-Aeroflex Wireless Communications Laboratory in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University.

The new laboratory is equipped with £1.5 million ($1.8 million) worth of test equipment donated by Aeroflex, a provider of test and measurement equipment that has a large R&D and manufacturing facility in Stevenage, UK. The Aeroflex laboratory will give UCL a major advantage in its research into technology for the next generation of wireless communication networks and user equipment, such as smartphones, tablet PCs and future mobile devices.

Aeroflex already has an established relationship with UCL, having provided financial support and work placements for a postgraduate student who has subsequently been employed by Aeroflex at its Stevenage facility. Members of Aeroflex staff regularly contribute to the lecture program, and the company continues to offer placements to UCL students.

The equipment in the new laboratory includes two of Aeroflex’s industry-leading TM500 LTE Test Mobiles for emulating user equipment as well as three Digital Radio Test Sets for handset and terminal testing.
