Technical Education Webinar Series
Title: Practicalities of Building a 28 GHz Small Cell
Date: April 16, 2020
Time: 8am PT / 11am ET
Sponsored by: Knowles Precision Devices
Presented by: Tim Brauner, Product Manager, Microwave Products Group, Knowles Precision Devices
Small cells are an increasingly common way to deploy 5G in the mmWave spectrum because they provide increased network capacity, improved network performance, and more reliable coverage. Phased array systems are critical to these 5G small cells, allowing engineers to enter the mmWave spectrum and take advantage of the higher bandwidth and speed 5G offers in a way that is practical and affordable.
During this Webinar, Knowles Precision Devices will discuss the key considerations building a 28 GHz small cell for 5G applications. We’ll review the critical building blocks that serve as the backbone of phased array systems and address the practical considerations for selecting these passive components, including size, tolerance, and thermal concerns. Then, we’ll walk through a 5G small cell reference architecture and discuss the core components that can make or break your system.
We’ll discuss the following topics:
