Next Generation Wi-Fi: 6 GHz Is On The Horizon

An understanding of Wi-Fi 6 certification, as well as regulation of the 6 GHz band, is critical for companies seeking to capitalize on next-gen Wi-Fi.

What’s Best? Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Or 5G?

Every time a new cellular phone standard comes out, we see new claims about the “end of Wi-Fi.” The 5G message is that it will cover homes and buildings both inside and outside. This begs the question: What will be the impact of the next generation of Wi‑Fi, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)? 

The Wi-Fi 6 Revolution Wakeup Call For Your Test Strategy

The IEEE 802.11ax amendment (Wi-Fi 6) focuses on greater efficiency in wireless connectivity. While key attributes of this improved efficiency directly improve traditional Wi-Fi applications, these attributes will largely affect higher-density applications such as large offices, airports, and outdoor stadiums.

This white paper’s goal is to help engineers successfully prepare for and execute their first cellular IoT design projects without needing to have the same level of expertise as a deeply specialized RF engineer.

Conformal Multi-Band Patch Antenna: Simulating The Planar And Curved Antennas In FEKO

Recent trends in the communications industry demand evermore compact antennas that exhibit wide-band or multi-band behavior. In some cases, conformity to a specific shape is also required (e.g. to improve aerodynamics, to decrease visibility). 

RF Converters Enable Efficient Multiband Radios For Next-Generation Wireless Base Stations

To deal with the sparse nature of the RF wireless spectrum, sophisticated DSP is used to efficiently process the data bits to RF and back again. This application note describes an example of a direct RF transmitter for multiband application, considering DSP configurations and power vs. bandwidth trade-off.
