Germany and France look toward 5G frequency licenses, India joins the U.S. and Australia in spurning Huawei, Verizon pushes for more U.S. firsts, and more, all in The Week In 5G.
The future of the Internets of Things (IoT) will expand the use of cellular communications beyond smartphones and tablets to an extraordinary range of applications and connected devices. A significant number of these applications will require long-range connections. Two new standards, NB-IoT and LTE-M, have potential uses and some implementation options for device makers looking to add cellular connectivity.
This week sees another salvo of "5G firsts" and rollouts from competing wireless carriers in the United States.
When purchasing RF test equipment, it is tempting to concentrate on specifications, such as insertion loss, frequency range, or VSWR, without think ahead on the fact that a complex testing scheme usually involves integrating multiple pieces of equipment from multiple manufacturers. For multiple devices to work seamlessly together in an automated test flow, designers and engineers must also consider the interface that would be used to drive the testing equipment. This article discusses the differences in proprietary and generic interfaces, the benefits each type has to offer, and offers some solutions to potential interface barriers and how to remove them.
There are many types of RF matrix switches with configurations that distribute RF signals in very different fashions. This app note describes the functionality of these types of switches, their advantages and disadvantage, and how to choose the best switch for each application.
