Welcome to this installment of EE Classroom on 5G Synchronization!
For 5G, timing may not be exactly everything, but it is a big thing. As build-out continues network operations must address a variety of challenges including successful spectrum management, preparation of transport and synchronization architectures, and reliance on existing and next-gen GNSS receivers – and solutions to their potential outages. High-reliability timing products become even more critical when you factor in the phase time demands of Time Division Duplex (TDD) and the need for high accuracy within a few hundred nanoseconds.
In this classroom, we present several tutorials on the test and measurement techniques associated with oscillators, and other timing products. Need a bit of a refresher or an intro to quartz crystals, oscillators, resonators, and RTCs? We’ve got that, too, as well as a check list of the critical parameters of a clock. After making your way through those tutorials, check out our sponsors various documents addressing solutions to 5G synchronization challenges.
