Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced multi-module synchronization for its M9703B AXIe high-speed digitizer/wideband digital receiver– increasing the total number of streaming and recording channels available with the M9703B. The new bundles options (-CB1/-CB2) enable multichannel phase coherent digital down conversion (DDC) which has applications in 5G, radar and satellite communications, and aerospace & defense.
Pulse Electronics Corp. introduces a new method of constructing antennas to enable high data rates in tight spaces that require 3x3 multiple input multiple output (MIMO) configurations such as tablets, laptops, and notebook computers.
Keysight Technologies Inc., in collaboration with The University of California San Diego (UCSD), has demonstrated the world’s first 64 (8 x 8) and 256-element (16 x 16), 60 GHz silicon wafer-scale phased-array transmitter with integrated high-efficiency antennas for Gbps communications at 100 to 200 meters.
Rice University researchers have won $2.4 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to conduct the most extensive experimental research yet of wireless technology that uses 100 or more antennas per base station to send tightly focused beams of data to each user, even as they move.
Ericsson Mobility Report provides insight into the future of 5G networks, including a forecast of 150 million 5G mobile subscriptions by 2021. South Korea, Japan, China and the U.S. are predicted to lead with the first, and fastest, 5G subscription uptake. 5G will connect new types of devices, enabling new use cases related to the Internet of Things (IoT); the transition will open up new industries and verticals to ICT transformation.
