Dk Testing is Vital to mmWave Circuit Design

Dielectric constant is an important starting point for many circuit designers, whether specifying a printed circuit board (PCB) material for a design or with a material in hand and using its Dk in computer circuit simulations. Especially at higher, mmWave frequencies where wavelengths are short and circuit dimensions must be precise, according to a substrate’s Dk, the accuracy of a circuit material’s Dk can impact the success of a prototype. Learn how to determine it accurately.

Why is the O-RAN Approach Critical for Flexible 5G?

In contrast, a 5G New Radio (NR) network based on an O-RAN structure is constructed with hardware and software from many different vendors. For the hardware and software to work together, networks require a set of standards for all vendors to meet, including component performance requirements for the network's electrical, mechanical, and environmental operating limits, such as amplifier gain stability with temperature for specified frequency, temperature, and humidity ranges.

Avoiding RF Interference with Simulation

Any time that multiple RF systems are co-located, there is an opportunity for RF interference (RFI) to degrade or disrupt the performance of receivers. The impact of RFI includes decreased performance, delayed product releases, product recalls and safety-critical scenarios. RFI is a very serious matter that must be addressed throughout the design of products and systems.

Over 1000 5G Devices Announced and 180 5G Networks Launched

According to GSA Reports

The Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) recently announced that 180 5G networks have now launched in 72 countries/territories around the world. The association’s research found that by the end of September 2021, 465 operators in 139 countries/territories are investing in 5G networks in the form of tests, trials, pilots, planned and actual deployments.
