The Wi-Fi 6 Revolution Wakeup Call For Your Test Strategy
By Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

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, apartment complexes, airports, arenas, and outdoor stadiums. This white paper offers several ideas of how to make Wi-Fi 6 a reality.

Spotlight On Wireless Infrastructure
An Introduction To Programmable Attenuator Systems
Application Note | JFW Industries, Inc.

A programmable or step attenuator is externally controlled with maximum attenuation ranges from 0 dB to 127 dB, in steps as small as 0.1 dB. This app note discusses key components in a programmable attenuator system, as well as the best choices for general applications.

Science And Control
Manual | Pentek, Inc.

Analog-to-Digital (A/D) converters accept an analog voltage at the input and produce a digital representation of that voltage at the output, called a “sample.” This handbook focuses on the use of A/D converters with sampling rates higher than 100 MHz, review sampling techniques and FPGA technology.

Reduce Cost And Complexity In 5G Millimeter-Wave Systems With Surface-Mount Solderable Filter Components
White Paper | Knowles Precision Devices DLI

Components for millimeter-wave 5G communications systems should be chosen for their performance and cost. This white paper explores the use of DLI surface-mount solderable filter components in RF systems to reduce the cost and complexity in 5G millimeter-wave systems.

Wi-Fi Performance In A House With Two Routers
White Paper | Remcom

Wireless InSite’s Communication System Analyzer provides capabilities for assessing the performance of LTE, WiMAX, 802.11n, and 802.11ac systems. This example investigates Wi-Fi throughput coverage in a house provided by 802.11ac routers operating at 5 GHz using an 80 MHz bandwidth.
