Simulation Of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Testing With XFdtd
By Remcom

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) testing is utilized worldwide by electronics manufactures and includes the use of numerous standards from organizations including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), JEDEC, and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), among others. The ability to simulate the ESD testing process and pinpoint locations in wireless devices susceptible to ESD damage allows engineers to reduce the number of prototypes required to design products for minimal ESD damage.

4 Tips For 5G New Radio Signal Creation
White Paper | Keysight Technologies

Working with 5G New Radio (NR) technologies requires dealing with millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies, wide channel bandwidths, and complex multi-antenna configurations. To properly simulate 5G NR compliant signals for testing transmitters and receivers of base stations, metrology-grade reference signals are required to see the true characteristics of the device under test (DUT).

Optimize Beamforming: From Bits To RF Beams
Application Note | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

Radar, satellite communications, and 5G NR use advanced antenna systems (AAS) with phased array antennas for beamforming. Hybrid beamforming combines the flexibility of digital beamforming with the efficiency of analog beamforming. Increasing integration enables compact and cost-efficient AAS. To achieve accurate, reliable and efficient beamforming, it is necessary to understand and compensate for the nonlinear behavior of RF components.
