How Important Is Millimeter-Wave To 5G?

For 5G to deliver high expectations, it must operate across wide contiguous frequency spectrum — only available at millimeter-wave frequencies. The frequency bands in the spectrum above 24 GHz can support large bandwidths and high data rates, ideal for increasing the capacity of wireless networks. Anokiwave offers the industry's most complete portfolio of Silicon ICs for mmW 5G and is the trusted choice of Tier-1 and -2 OEMs worldwide.

Power Combiner, Directional Coupler, Crossguide Coupler And Waveguide To Coax Adapter

As semiconductor advancement and applications of such increased, technology like GaN enables the expansion of 5G, IoT, and other commercial, aerospace, and military systems. Due to this, the specification for higher power handling capacity is required for even high frequency devices.

The Basics Of Military EMC Testing

Military EMC testing requirements are defined by industry leaders, procurement specialists, and project leaders. The requirements have been clearly defined so that experienced EMC test engineers and test laboratories know exactly what is needed for compliance testing of systems and components, or a combination of the two. It is important to have a basic understanding of the requirements that have been put in place for military testing standards.

Building 5G Small Cells Without Compromising Performance

Before small cell technology took its place as a central component to realizing the promise of 5G networks, it played an important role in helping to improve the coverage and capacity of 4G. In this pursuit, small cells have proven valuable for extending signal penetration and increasing wireless density and these small, lightweight devices will continue to be a key technology for the data-intensive transition to 5G. 

Enhancing Channel-To-Channel Alignment For Accurate Phase-Coherent Multichannel Acquisition

This application note shows how to measure the channel-to-channel skew and compensate it across the entire signal path between the signal source and the oscilloscope channel input when using the high-speed differential pulse source available for the R&S RTO and R&S RTP oscilloscopes.
