Simplifying 5G Radio Design With A New Range Of 28 GHz Bandpass Filters

As 5G innovation forges on, radio systems continue to emerge. Each system has a range of requirements, including specific RF filter performance needs, and it’s up to the 5G FR2 Ecosystem of suppliers to meet that demand. In response, Knowles Precision Devices (KPD) supports a wide variety of 5G radio applications.

Extended Resolution Bandwidths For Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Measurements

Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology has a growing number of applications in communication technology, radar sensors, or IoT equipment, among many others, all using an extremely high bandwidth of 500 MHz or more. The ETSI standard requires in-band testing for product certification with a resolution bandwidth of 50 MHz. This application note explains technical reasons for the bandwidth limitation and presents solutions for regulative UWB testing. 

Telecommunications Testing Using AR Amplifiers

This application note explores a number of testing requirements for telecommunication devices and how to benefit from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation’s products. The paper will cover two broad categories of device testing — characterization and reliability — within mid to high power systems.

Beamforming For An 8x8 Planar Phased Patch Antenna Array For 5G At 28 GHz

In this example, an 8x8 planar antenna array creates narrow beams capable of scanning large sectors in front of the antenna. The example focuses on displaying typical simulation results for beams and possible plots of coverage from the full array and combinations of sub-arrays.
