Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
The electronica trade fair will be held November 8-11, 2016, in Munich. Rohde & Schwarz will present its portfolio of T&M solutions tailored to the requirements of today's most significant technology trends (hall A1, booth 307).
Rohde & Schwarz follows the call to London to attend European Microwave Week, where the company will demonstrate its T&M highlights for demanding applications in the aerospace & defense, automotive and wireless industries. In focus: test solutions for satellite communications, for radar applications in the A&D and automotive sectors and for the next generation of mobile networks 5G.
Rohde & Schwarz has enhanced its proven test solution platforms to include advanced capabilities that are facilitating the research, development and standardization of 5G. The fifth generation of mobile radio will open up new frequency bands for commercial wireless communications in the microwave and millimeter wave ranges to increase date rates on a massive scale.
The new R&S RTO-K44 option from Rohde & Schwarz offers powerful triggering and decoding functionality for debugging designs with MIPI M-PHY based protocols. Defined as a physical layer, M-PHY serves as the basis for a number of protocol standards that have been optimized for rapid data transmission in mobile devices.
The R&S BBA150 amplifier family's D series is characterized by high power density and appeals especially to the automotive and wireless communications industry. A desktop model of only four height units delivers up to 200 W.
Rohde & Schwarz presents its new R&S NRPxxS and R&S NRPxxSN USB three-path diode power sensors. The completely redesigned sensors offer unprecedented measurement speed and measurement accuracy, even at low levels.
With its R&S RTE and R&S RTO oscilloscopes, Rohde & Schwarz is one of the first suppliers to offer analysis solutions for the CAN flexible data (CAN FD) interface protocol. A new option enables design engineers to analyze CAN interfaces that support the high speed CAN FD bus protocol. These interfaces are seeing increased use in automotive and industry applications due to rising data rate requirements.
The new R&S RTO-K26 MIPI D-PHY compliance test software from Rohde & Schwarz offers automated tests in line with the current v1.1 specifications of the MIPI® Alliance and the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL).
When developing radar sensor chipsets, users can now use the new Rohde & Schwarz solution to simulate a realistic scenario in the lab. For example, it is possible to simulate vehicles with different moving profiles or stress tests in different environments. As a result, developers can verify the signal processing algorithms of the sensor at an early stage.
