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.
At the 5G Global Summit, held in Busan, South Korea, Rohde & Schwarz presented an extremely compact test setup for generating and analyzing signals up to 67 GHz that will enables users to evaluate potential new physical air interface technologies for future 5G networks.
Anritsu Co. introduces the VectorStar™ ME7838E vector network analyzer (VNA) broadband system that provides frequency coverage from 70 kHz to 110 GHz in a single connection. Incorporating all the benefits of the VectorStar ME7838 series broadband system, the ME7838E addresses the challenges associated with today's high-speed device characterization.
OML introduces millimeter wave intermodulation distortion (IMD) measurements to target emerging gigabit applications such as WirelessHD, WiGig, 802.11ad and E-band point-to-point radios. In these applications, the linearity of amplifiers and transceivers can adversely affect bit terror rate, especially those involving higher order modulation.
Anritsu Co. announces its VectorStar ME7838A broadband VNA platform now has 4-port measurement capability, bringing the inherent advantages of the VectorStar platform to 4-port and differential mm-wave component development.
