A set of nine antennas from Linx Technologies cover 5G, LTE, Wi-Fi (through 6E), and other frequency bands.
5G’s RF signals and data rates bring development of new liquid crystal polymer materials for connectors, and PCBs to minimize signal losses
The C.Fl connector pair from Hirose Electric rises just 1 mm from a board and covers DC to 30 GHz.
The 5G25 connector from Molex covers IF frequencies for mmWave applications.
A hybrid International Microwave Symposium (IMS) took place live in Atlanta and online two weeks later in June 2021. See a selection of companies and product — mostly 5G — showcased in the virtual version.
The use of mmWave technology is growing across various applications, from 5G telephony to automotive systems and drones. At mmWave frequencies, signal integrity (SI) is a major concern. SI measures the signal’s ability to propagate without distortion or undue losses. It measures the quality, or distortion, of the signal passing through the printed circuit board…
In this video, 5G Technology World interviews Corning’s Michael O’Day about composite cables use to deliver both power and light to 5G small cells.
The BBox from TMYTEK lets you control a signal’s amplitude and phase under software control. Use it to test antennas, phones, small cells, and measure material properties when subjected to mmWave signals.
You know 5G is in deployment when two companies introduce installation and maintenance test tools in the same week. That’s what happened recently as both VIAVI Solutions and Rohde & Schwarz introduced portable test equipment for 5G site installation, though the companies emphasize different tests. VIAVI, known for its network-testing products, introduced the OneAdvisor-800, a…
Like all technologies, 5G needs more that just the “glamor” components such as baseband ICs, RFICs, and phased-array antennas. Interconnects can make or break a design, and 5G is no exception. So, besides giving birth to active devices, 5G has also spawned a need for connectors. To that end, TE Connectivity has developed the ERFV…
