5G NR Primer for Amplifier and Filter Design

Future communication systems will comprise many diverse systems that will be implemented with a wide array of solutions. Providing increased mobile broadband traffic and higher data rates, as demanded by end users, will require adding more spectrum, making that spectrum more efficient, and building out ultra-dense network configurations.

5G Primer for MIMO/Phased-Array Antennas

Evolving communication systems are driving developments in the RF/microwave industry. The large umbrella of 5G focuses on supporting three main technologies:

  • Enhanced mobile broadband, which is the natural development of long-term evolution (LTE)
  • Massive achine-type communications, also known as the industrial internet of things (IIoT)
  • Ultra-reliable, low-latency communications providing mission-critical infrastructure for services such as transportation, public safety, medical, and more.

System Simulation Primer for RF Link Budget Analysis

An RF link budget is used to account for all the gains and losses in a telecommunication system — from the transmitter, through the medium (free space, cable, waveguide, fiber, and more), to the receiver. By accounting for the attenuation of the transmitted signal as it propagates through the communication channel, system designers can determine the required signal strength and antenna gain necessary to overcome all feedline and miscellaneous losses in order to ensure an appropriate quality of signal for successful data transmission.
