Connectors and cabling can be as important as the test instruments used to check out systems operating in the 5G realm. John Muzzio, Times Microwave Systems Andrew Dinsdale, SV Microwave Unlike previous cellular technology generations that were focused on a specific frequency band, 5G deals with a much larger potential frequency range. For example, 4G […]
At the 2021 (virtual) IEEE Microwave Symposium, the industry looked at where wireless is going and how it will get beyond 5G.
Signal analyzers and best measurement practices can minimize errors that result from losses at mmWave frequencies.
ROHM Semiconductor announced two new bucks DC/DC converter ICs with built-in MOSFET – the BD9G500EFJ-LA and BD9F500QUZ – ideal for applications supporting high voltages and currents in factory automation equipment (e.g., PLCs / inverters, and 5G base stations that handle high power). Recent years have seen evolving markets of battery-driven applications and advanced industrial equipment, such as 5G […]
u-blox has announced the release of two “explorer kits” aimed at letting product developers evaluate the potential of Bluetooth direction finding and high precision indoor positioning. Designed for low power consumption, simple deployment, and low cost of ownership, the u-blox XPLR-AOA-1, and XPLR-AOA-2 explorer kits make it easy to test the technology’s capabilities to enable […]
