The Wi-Fi 6 Revolution Wake-Up Call For Your Test Strategy
By Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

The IEEE 802.11ax amendment (Wi-Fi 6) focusses on greater efficiency in wireless connectivity. While the key attributes of this improved efficiency directly improve traditional Wi-Fi applications, the attributes will largely affect higher-density applications such as large offices, shopping malls, apartment complexes, airports, indoor arenas, outdoor stadiums. This white paper offers several ideas of how to make Wi-Fi 6 a reality.

4 Tips For 5G New Radio Signal Creation
White Paper | Keysight Technologies

To properly simulate 5G NR compliant signals for testing transmitters and receivers of base stations, metrology-grade reference signals are required to see the true characteristics of the device under test (DUT). This white paper outlines the steps to get started on the next phase of the 5G rollout. Insights include tips on how to create and evaluate 5G NR signals, and what to watch for during design validation.

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.

Simulating Performance Of A Low Cost, Chipless RFID System In XFdtd
Application Note | Remcom

In this example, an RFID tag system is examined using XFdtd EM Simulation Software to validate its performance for use in situations where high volume usage requires very low-cost components. The RFID tag is constructed as a microstrip device with spiral resonators tuned to specific frequencies that represent separate bits of the tag code.
