pSemi’s David Watling demonstrated the company’s eight-channel beamforming ICs for RF engineers.
Up/down converters and beamformers from Analog devices cover frequencies from 24 GHz to 43.5 GHz. mmWave, the part of 5G that brings those happy faces on wireless carrier commercials, adds up/down conversion to the 5G RF signal chain. Beamforming, needed to direct signals to users, plays an important role. After all, who doesn’t need to…
A standards group will seek to define a technology for steering reflection of wireless signals.
An amplifier design from 1936 gets a revival by reducing power consumption in cellular radios.
5G Technology World’s video interview with NI’s David Hall looks at 5G ICs coming off the production line and what’s coming next.
A MEMS RF switch from Menlo Micro helps eliminate the decision of whether to design a semiconductor or mechanical switch into your circuits.
Mobile devices have evolved from basic analog phones to digitally enabled smartphones that fit in the palm of your hand. Voice communications are still part of the mix, but voice calls are handled by converting the voice signal from analog to digital and transmitting it digitally. This means that mobile wireless systems are focused on…
