Featured Article
Design And Simulation Of 28 GHz Beamforming System And Antenna Array For 5G Network Base Stations

Learn how to design and analyze a 28 GHz array capable of forming multiple beams for 5G base stations.

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.

IC Integration Enables Flat-Panel Phased Array Antenna Design

Advances in semiconductor technology have enabled the proliferation of phased array antenna across the industry. This shift away from the mechanically steered antenna to the active electronically scanned antenna (AESA) began years ago in military applications, but has rapidly advanced more recently in satcom on-the-move and 5G communications.

Understanding RF Signal-Combining Technologies

This article explores options for combining or separating signals and is intended to help engineers determine which component — or combination of components — is most advantageous, given the application.

Know Today’s RF Filtering Trends To Better Meet The Needs Of Tomorrow’s RF Design Jobs

While all filters have the same basic job—remove unwanted or out-of-band signals—the specific job requirements of each filter vary depending on the RF architecture used and the needs of the final device.

Head-To-Head Coaxial Interconnect Vs. OTA Testing For 5G

OTA testing has the potential to revolutionize wireless device testing while enabling innovative testing of both advanced antenna systems (AAS) and antenna array technology. When flexibility, speed and testing diverse antenna configurations are the primary objectives, new methods of OTA testing bring much to the table.
