Historically, amplifier selection for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing was based mainly on meager knowledge and information scattered across the EMC industry. However, proper EMC amplifier selection is an important step in achieving required RF levels. This application note offers the information necessary to make the optimal amplifier selection by taking the reader through numerous considerations.
5G networks plan to offer a hundred-fold increase in user data-rates which will require growth in bandwidth over what is currently available. This article introduces the 5G spectrum and explores some of the mechanisms behind the increase in bandwidths.
To satisfy backhaul demand and maintain high data rates without holes in coverage, wireless carriers are adding large numbers of micro and pico cells to fill in the gaps in conjunction with traditional macro cells.
FPGAs have become an increasingly important resource for software radio systems. This handbook introduces the basics of FPGA technology and its relationship to SDR (Software-Defined Radio) systems. A review of Pentek’s GateFlow FPGA Design Resources is followed by a discussion of features and benefits of FPGA-based DDCs. Pentek SDR products that utilize FPGA technology and applications based on such products are also presented.
Is 5G simply another generation of mobile communications technologies? Or something revolutionary? In this eBook, Rohde & Schwarz give insights into 5G New Radio (NR), exploring all of its relevant details, key implementation aspects, and required test and measurement equipment for the development of 5G NR products.
