NI Demonstrates First Real-Time OTA Prototype for Verizon 5G at 28 GHz

Prototype achieves 5 Gbit/s peak data rates, scalable to over 20 Gbit/s

Today, at the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) in San Francisco, National Instruments (NI) publicly demonstrated a real-time, over-the-air prototype aligned with the Verizon 5G specification. The 28 GHz system uses OFDM with eight component carriers in a 2x2 downlink MU-MIMO configuration, with hybrid beamforming and a self-contained subframe, yielding a 5 Gbps peak throughput that is scalable to over 20 Gbps with eight MIMO streams.

SAGE Millimeter Releases V-Band, Dual Polarized Antenna Horn Assembly

SAGE Millimeter has released a V-Band, dual polarized horn antenna assembly covering 50 to 75 GHz. The antenna features an integrated orthomode transducer (OMT) that provides high port isolation and cross-polarization cancellation, enabling the antenna to separate a circular or elliptical polarized waveform into two linear, orthogonal waveforms. At the center frequency, the horn antenna has 15 dBi nominal gain and a typical half-power beamwidth of 28 degrees on the E-plane and 33 degrees on the H-plane.
