Antenna efficiency plays a critical role in overall smartphone RF performance. However, current trends in smartphone industrial design and RF requirements, especially with the upcoming transition to 5G, mean that smartphones must fit more antennas into less space and/or increase the bandwidth of existing antennas. In short, antenna tuning is more important than ever. This article introduces four key elements to understand about antenna tuning in 4G and 5G mobile devices.
Components for mmWave 5G communications systems should be chosen for their performance and cost. This white paper explores the use of DLI surface mount solderable filter components in RF systems to reduce the cost and complexity in 5G mmWave systems.
Wireless power transfer is an emerging technology used in many applications, including consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and biomedical implants, and will undoubtedly see continued growth over the next decade and beyond. This presentation demonstrates how XFdtd can be used to simulate and analyze wireless charging systems.
Ethernet is used in automotive networks to enable fast and cost-effective data communications. The R&S RTO oscilloscope together with the R&S ZND vector network analyzer (VNA) is the ideal solution for 100BASE-T1 compliance testing due to its superior signal fidelity and automated test and reporting execution capability.
The Orange Book of Knowledge (OBK) has grown into much more than we at AR could have ever imagined. For many engineers, this resource book has turned into the “go-to” source for everything and anything related to EMC.
