How To Design User Equipment Antenna Systems For 5G Wireless Networks

The evolution to 5G promises low latency, high data rates, and increased channel capacity for mobile communication networks. Delivering this promise requires revamping existing networks, building new infrastructure and developing the client devices.  This paper provides pervasive simulation techniques and workflows for designing 5G antennas, microcell arrays and end-user devices or user equipment (UE) on Ansys tools.

Flexibility Of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors

Mechanical cracking resistance can be increased by two methods; by reducing the mechanical stress being exerted on the capacitors by PCB design/assembly processes, and by increasing the mechanical strength of the component. 

The Top Custom MMIC Blog Posts – From Mixers To Phased Array Radar

In February 2020, Qorvo acquired Custom MMIC. Along with the acquisition, Qorvo also obtained Custom MMIC’s collection of insightful blog posts that provide trusted and useful information for designs using millimeter-wave circuits for satellite communications, radar systems, and cellular infrastructure applications. This posting presents several of their blog posts with links to more in-depth information.

Webinar: New Advancements For mmWave Antenna Design In XFdtd

XFdtd 7.9.1 introduces a range of new features to assist engineers in designing antennas for millimeter wave applications. This webinar demonstrates XF’s singularity correction which accurately captures highly varying fields at the edges of good conductors and the process for importing components and document layers of a PCB. We also demonstrate XF’s multi-port feature for representing RF tuners and switches in the Circuit Element Optimizer (CEO) along with other minor updates.
