EE World visited Effect Photonics’ Massachusetts office for a video look at how its optical communications products adapt to changing conditions in telecom and data networks. Maynard, Mass. — Data from 5G fronthaul through core networks and datacenters move quickest when transported over optical fibers. Effect Photonics, a company based in the Netherlands, recently opened…
In part 1, we discussed “Creating 5G Massive MIMO.” In part 2, we discuss the antenna options for moving into 6G using variations of Massive MIMO.In part 1, we discussed “Creating 5G Massive MIMO.” In part 2, we discuss the antenna options for moving into 6G using variations of Massive MIMO.
Learn the basics of how to use RF over fiber. You have many options.
The upstream linear burst-mode transimpedance amplifier is the first to support 50 Gb/sec NRZ and 100 Gb/sec PAM4. They could drastically increase internet connection speeds and 5G infrastructure.
The R140B from Copper Mountain Technologies lets you characterize antennas and cables without the need for an additional test cable.
The next generation of cellular communications, the 5G network, will help the IoT reach its full potential. IoT includes many devices and physical objects such as home appliances, vehicles, and “smart” cities. IoT connectivity depends on the advancements of the 5G network compared to the current 4G LTE networks. The download speed of up to […]
The Si55xx and Si540x timing ICs from Skyworks work in tandem with AccuTime software to provide low-jitter clocks and IEEE 1588 PTP fronthaul sync. In networks, timing is everything. Without solid, accurate timing and synchronization, data gets lost. Skyworks has introduced ICs that work with its software to address the timing relative to 5G radios…
Circuit-protection components such as fuses and TVS diodes protect power and data circuits from damage. Here’s where and how to insert them into your circuits.
Sensors marketing consultant Roger Grace has issued his 2021 MEMS Commercialization Report Card. Do you agree with his conclusions?
The PWR-8PW-RC from Mini-Circuits let’s you measure peak, average, crest factor, and duty cycle. Anything you design with an RF transmitter needs power measurements to ensure it meets specifications. The PWR-8PW-RC Smart Power Sensor from Mini-Circuits connects to a PC, µC-based device, or network, letting you measure peak, average, crest factor, and duty cycle power…
