The radio frequency spectrum, the basis for wireless telecommunications, is a finite resource that needs to be managed effectively to satisfy the demands posed by the exponential growth in wireless internet access. IMDEA Networks researchers have developed a novel communications architecture for future ultrafast wireless networks that promises to achieve data rates previously only possible with optical fiber.
Plus, Germany completes its 2 GHz and 3.6 GHz mobile spectrum auction; Spain sees Europe's first 5G banking; Apple aims to take a bite out of Intel, and more, all in this edition of The Week in 5G.
Cellular transformation is underway in the medical and industrial space with the push for low-power cellular networks such as LTE CAT-M1 and NB-IoT. These technologies are unleashing a new wave of IoT devices that drastically reduce cost and operate for years on a single battery. But that’s just the start. Combining low-power cellular with Bluetooth 5 offers two best-in-class wireless technologies to bridge local sensors, phones, people, gateways, and the cloud into one seamless extension.
Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes have built-in spectrum analyzers with an RF input that is ideal for significantly higher dynamic ranges than an oscilloscope using a regular input and an FFT function. This download compares the performance of the 3 Series MDO's built-in spectrum analyzer to common oscilloscope FFT performance.
Working with 5G New Radio (NR) technologies requires dealing with millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies, wide channel bandwidths, and complex multi-antenna configurations. To properly simulate 5G NR compliant signals for testing transmitters and receivers of base stations, metrology-grade reference signals are required to see the true characteristics of the device under test (DUT). This white paper outlines the steps to get started on the next phase of the 5G rollout. Insights include tips on how to create and evaluate 5G NR signals, and what to watch for during design validation.

The Jade Xilinx FPGA family of products utilizes Jade™ architecture which embodies a new streamlined approach to FPGA based boards, simplifying the design to reduce power and cost, while still providing some of the highest performance FPGA resources available. Designed to work with Pentek's new Navigator™ Design Suite of tools, the combination of Jade and Navigator offers users an efficient path to developing and deploying FPGA based data acquisition and processing.
Digital Phosphorus Technology, or DPX, is a Tektronix patented acquisition mode that performs the hardware DSP processing and rasterizing of the samples into pixel information in order to reveal a greater amount of signal detail. It gives a truly “live” view of the RF signals, with its color-grading feature allowing users to see different signals at the same frequency yet separated by either time or power levels. In this video, DPX is demonstrated and reveals signals that your old spectrum analyzer might be hiding from you. You can literally see signals hidden beneath other signals!
