How To Video: Understanding GaN Device Thermal Analysis
By Qorvo

Gallium nitride (GaN) is still considered a relatively new semiconductor technology. Because of its superior properties, it is being used more and more in market areas previously dominated by legacy technologies. One area where GaN rises above the incumbent technologies is thermal management. In short, GaN “can take the heat” much better than other semiconductor technologies. This article and the video titled “Understanding GaN Thermal Analysis” provide practical tips about how to properly design using GaN with thermal considerations in mind.

Stuck In The Middle: How To Choose Your Next Band Pass Filter
White Paper | By James Price, Corry Micronics, Inc.

For an RF application, it is important to consider the advantages, disadvantages, and trade-offs of each piece of technology used. This white paper delves into the many considerations for choosing the best band pass filter for your next application and offers guidance for what to look for in each decision.

Historically, limited CW power was available in the mmWave frequency range. Therefore, power handling was not a major concern for most customers. As semiconductor advancement and applications of such increased in scope, technology such as the GaN enables the expansion of 5G, IoT, small satellite, and many other commercial, aerospace, and military systems. Due to this, the specification for higher power handling capacity is required for even high frequency devices.

Redefining 5G New Radio Drive Testing
White Paper | Keysight Technologies

As 5G NR networks are deployed, live network testing is needed to ensure network coverage and Quality of Experience (QoE). In addition, QoE testing in 5G NR will get more complicated due to changes in the network architecture. This means traditional testing will not reflect the true service quality as seen by an application. QoE field testing will need to be tested at the application layer to address the 5G NR QoE measurement challenge and translate the user experience into measurable KPIs.

The Wi-Fi 6 Revolution Wakeup Call For Your Test Strategy
White Paper | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

The IEEE 802.11ax amendment (Wi-Fi 6) focuses on greater efficiency in wireless connectivity. While key attributes of this improved efficiency directly improve traditional Wi-Fi applications, these attributes will largely affect higher-density applications such as large offices, apartment complexes, airports, arenas, and outdoor stadiums. This white paper offers several ideas of how to make Wi-Fi 6 a reality.
