Fully Polarimetric Analysis Of Wireless Connectivity For Smart Home And IoT Applications
By Altair Engineering Inc.
This white paper presents a study of wireless connectivity of electronic devices in the Wi-Fi band. For accuracy, the analysis will use the full polarimetric information for each device’s antenna pattern. The study focuses on wireless connectivity between lamps and light switches in an indoor environment, with the goal to set guidelines for spacing between transmitters and receivers: wall-mounted switch boxes and ceiling-mounted lamps, as well as pairs of lamps.
Reduce Cost And Complexity In 5G mmWave Systems With Surface Mount Solderable Filter Components
White Paper | Knowles Precision Devices DLI

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.

R&S dB Calculator
Application Note | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

This application note discusses a free of charge software tool that can be used to add or subtract an arbitrary number of powers. In addition, the software can be used to convert power and voltage units from the linear to the logarithmic scale, convert linear power and voltage ratios to decibels, and convert a VSWR to other reflection quantities.
