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.
Building on our extensive cellular infrastructure experience and expertise, Infineon introduces a new family of Gallium Nitride (GaN) on Silicon Carbide (SiC) RF power transistors which enable cellular amplifier designers to build smaller, more powerful and more flexible transmitters.
Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduced a 0.7 to 1.2 GHz, single-die cascode, GaAs, PHEMT LNA for cellular infrastructure applications such as tower-mounted amplifiers, remote radio units, repeaters and base stations. The LNA offers very low noise figure and high linearity along with excellent return loss and gain flatness.
OML announces a direct connect configuration that supports millimeter wave S-parameter measurements using the ZVA series network analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz. This entry-level configuration offers engineers the versatility to connect VxxVNA2 series modules directly to the front panel of a four-port dual-source vector network analyzer.
