Wireless companies pay large sums for up to 700 MHz of a 1 GHz band.
Learn how to use patch antennas and phase shifting to create a phased-array antenna to steer RF signals.
While talk of 6G has already started, 5G has moved into applied research. Students at WPI work with Professor Alex Wyglinski to connect IoT devices and vehicles to 5G networks.
The SKY16603-632LF from Skyworks uses two diodes in an anti-parallel configuration.
A MEMS RF switch from Menlo Micro helps eliminate the decision of whether to design a semiconductor or mechanical switch into your circuits. When designing a switch into a circuit, you’ve probably been faced with a tradeoff. Semiconductor switches are fast and live long, but they have relatively high RON that can produce unacceptable losses.…
Part 2 continues the theme of power and efficiency in amplifiers, adding upload links, fixed access, and open RAN.
Just because 5G is rapidly rolling out doesn’t mean everything works and it’s time to move on. Indeed, the design challenges are just beginning, as this two-part series from IMS 2020’s 5G Summit shows.
The EM519x series of wireless modules from Sierra Wireless add 5G to embedded and IoT designs, with fallback to 4G and 3G.
Open radio-access networks promise to make 5G networks more flexible while fostering innovation, but with interoperable components comes the need for compliance and interoperability testing.
Digital step attenuators from pSemi let you adjust signal amplitude to meet the needs of components such as converters and filters.
