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.
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).
AR offers a variety of fully integrated test systems for any testing application from DC to 50 GHz. These radiated immunity systems are capable of testing to various standards, including IEC 61000, MIL-STD 461, DO-160, wireless, automotive, HIRF, and HERO.
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.
Components for mmWave 5G communications systems should be chosen for their performance and cost. This white paper explores the use of DLI surface mount solderable filter components in RF systems to reduce the cost and complexity in 5G mmWave systems.
Automotive radar systems are trending to the 77 GHz frequency band, supporting a bandwidth of 4 GHz utilizing multiple antennas. This webinar will demonstrate how to simultaneously measure and analyze up to four 4 GHz automotive radar signals at 79 GHz by using an oscilloscope as a phase coherent receiver and high precision mixers for down conversion.
