5G Evolution – on the Path to 6G

5G is now - what´s next?

5G deployments have only recently started, and releases beyond R15 will continue to tap into the tremendous potential of 5G. However, as a new generation of cellular technology typically appears every 8-10 years, 6G can be expected around 2030.

Download this white paper to explore the evolution from 5G to 6G from a service, air interface and network perspective.

Jitter Analysis with the R&S®RTO Digital Oscilloscope

This application note introduces the Jitter analysis capabilities of the R&S® RTO Digital Oscilloscope and the Jitter option R&S®RTO-K12 for digital signals. It provides background information on jitter sources and standard jitter measurement tools. Furthermore it demonstrates Period jitter, Cycle jitter and Time Interval Error jitter measurements based on an application example. The benefits of different representations of the measurement results with histogram, track and spectrum display are discussed.

The Rebirth of HF

HF stands for “high frequency” and is usually used to refer to signals with frequencies in the range of 3 MHz to 30 MHz, although in many cases the practical definition of HF has be extended down to frequencies as low as 1.5 MHz.

Gate Drive Measurement Considerations

One of the primary purposes of a gate driver is to enable power switches to turn on and off faster, improving rise and fall times. Faster switching enables higher efficiency and higher power density, reducing losses in the power stage associated with high slew rates. However, as slew rates increase, so do measurement and characterization uncertainty.

NewSpace Terminal Testing Challenges and Considerations

Today’s satellite communication systems combine features from legacy cellular networks and emerging wireless technologies. New constellations are under development that attempt to provide ubiquitous mobility and internet networks via satellites, ground stations and user terminals (Figure 1). Each link in the supply chain presents unique challenges for R&D, production and deployment for both the components and system development.

Verifying RF Device Performance With a Blocking Test

The increasing density of devices, machines, systems and vehicles using wireless connectivity solutions can pose a great challenge for a new Wi-Fi module due to the presence of interfering signals. A wireless receiver’s ability to receive a wanted signal in the presence of an interfering signal is described by blocking characteristics.
