A 5G, 60 GHz Antenna Array For mmWave Wireless Virtual Reality Headsets
By Remcom

The array is composed of four elements which each have two patches and a parasitic element. The parasitic element aids in producing a wider beam in one dimension to give better coverage. The beams may be steered by varying the phase shift between elements to provide near hemispherical coverage.

Components For 5G: What Is New?
Application Note | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

With the next big step in mobile communication, 5G will introduce new RF techniques, new frequencies and signal bandwidths. Ultimately, 5G New Radio (5G NR) will bring higher speed, reduced latency, more capacity and improved reliability. While the system parameters will change, the hardware to enable the new major step in mobile technology towards 5G NR will be different as well. New technologies will be deployed and designs have to follow the new requirements.

Filter Shape Factor And Selectivity
Article | Knowles Precision Devices DLI

This article discusses how a real-world filter’s deviation from ideal behavior needs to be quantified and that shape factor and selectivity are tools to use in this process. It touches on how both resonator Q and the filter order (number of resonators in a design) can influence a filters behavior in the transition band.
