The array is composed of four elements which each have two patches and a parasitic element. The parasitic element aids in producing a wider beam in one dimension to give better coverage. The beams may be steered by varying the phase shift between elements to provide near hemispherical coverage.
One of the challenges that 5G engineers face is how to sufficiently implement high-performance RF filtering in millimeter-wave applications. This white paper looks at some of the considerations to make when selecting a filter technology for millimeter-wave applications.
S-parameter matching is used to maximize gain and gain flatness in simple linear RF/microwave amplifier designs. This same S-parameter data is used to develop matching networks that address amplifier stability. This paper discusses the importance of using modeling for basic S-parameter and stability analyses in the gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier (PA) design process.
5G represents an exponential increase in technical complexity with challenges coming from 5G new radio (NR), massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO), millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies, and over-the-air (OTA) test methods. This paper includes useful tips to help manufacturers accelerate time to market across the 5G workflow and reach first-to-market status.
To achieve accurate, reliable and efficient beamforming, it is necessary to understand and compensate for the nonlinear behavior of RF components. This application note covers the benefits of Rohde & Schwarz’s portfolio of conducted and OTA test solutions and how they help to optimize beamforming.
Remcom will be demonstrating its EM simulation software suite for complete end-to-end design of complex devices and wireless communication systems. Together, the products provide a comprehensive 5G solution, from system and antenna design through performance assessment in realistic, simulated environments, and planning for deployment in 5G networks.
