Radio Fundamentals For Cellular Networks

Cellular technologies have advanced from first generation analog technologies to advanced high-performance fourth generation and fifth generation systems in just four decades. Despite the increase in complexity of wireless standards and devices, cellular technologies maintain a set of common principles that form the basis behind the design of cellular systems. This white paper explores these basic principles and examine the underlying technologies that lay the foundation for today and future cellular systems.

Test Strategies For The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is providing exciting opportunities to enhance products for consumer, industrial, medical and others. This paper discusses these unlicensed wireless connections and the special testing required to meet government regulations for IoT devices with a primary focus on the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC). 

Strategies For Developing Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC

New RFSoC technologies add RF-class analog to digital and digital to analog data converters to Xilinx’s already powerful MPSoC, ARM processor enhanced family of high-performance FPGAs. The implications of its use changes the way engineers could design and package small, high-channel count systems for 5G, military, and scientific applications. This white paper takes a look at the current trends in data converters and signal processing to better understand the capabilities of RFSoC and how to best use the advantages of the technology.
