Radio Fundamentals For Cellular Networks
By Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

Cellular technologies have advanced from first generation analog technologies to advanced high-performance fourth generation and fifth generation systems in just four decades. Despite the increase in complexity of wireless standards and devices, cellular technologies maintain a set of common principles that form the basis behind the design of cellular systems. This white paper explores these basic principles and examine the underlying technologies that lay the foundation for today and future cellular systems.

Cross-Coupling Between A 3G Transmitter And A Cable Bundle
White Paper | Altair Engineering Inc

This paper explains how to compute cross-coupling effects between a cable bundle and 3G antenna mounted on a vehicle using the cable modeling interface in FEKO. It also demonstrates FEKO GUI elements useful for investigating the cross-coupling between transmitters and cable bundles.

Wideband Integrated Upconverters And Downconverters Boost Microwave Radio Performance While Reducing Size
Application Note | By James Wong, Kasey Chatzopoulos, and Murtaza Thahirally, Analog Devices, Inc.

Analog Devices recently launched a pair of highly integrated microwave upconverter and downconverter chips operating over a wide frequency range with 50 Ω match from 24 GHz up to 44 GHz. Performance attributes of the ADMV1013 and ADMV1014 ease the design and implementation of small 5G millimeter wave (mmW) platforms that cover the popular 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands in backhaul and fronthaul, as well as many other ultrawide bandwidth transmitter and receiver applications.
