While some feel GaN is still a relatively new technology, many can't dispute how it's advanced to the head of the class. Gallium nitride is a technology on the cusp of dethroning silicon LDMOS, which has been the material of choice in high-power applications.
5G networks plan to offer a hundred-fold increase in user data rates, which will require growth in bandwidth over what is currently available. This article introduces the 5G spectrum and explores some of the mechanisms behind the increase in bandwidths.

The ever-increasing demand for higher data rates and reduced buffering times has driven the continuous evolution of cellular communication and transmission. 5G promises to take performance to levels never seen before, with mounting pressure to deploy 5G handsets faster than any previous cellular standard.
Whenever there is a polarization mismatch in antennas, electromagnetic (EM) power is lost, which can result in faulty transmission and poor signal reception. The loss of EM power due to a polarization mismatch is defined by the polarization loss factor (PLF).
Application Note |
By Bilge Bayrakci, ADI,Analog Devices
In the quest for higher data rates to support a variety of wireless services and different transmission schemes, system designers face higher circuit complexity but must meet similar budgets for size, power, and cost.
This application note explores a number of testing requirements for telecommunication devices and how to benefit from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation’s products. The paper will cover two broad categories of device testing — characterization and reliability — within mid- to high-power systems.
Millimeter-wave frequencies can support large bandwidths and high data rates, ideal for increasing the capacity of wireless networks. Anokiwave offers the industry's most complete portfolio of silicon ICs for millimeter-wave 5G and is the trusted choice of Tier-1 and -2 OEMs worldwide.
This webinar demonstrates how modeling and simulation can be used to assist system designers, first in the design of a complex antenna array for a base station and then to assess its potential performance in the field.
RFSoC technology has revolutionized design strategies for MIL-AERO systems for Radar, SIGINT, EW, and communications, and the new Gen 3 version has opened up even higher performance levels and bandwidths.
The next edition of Qorvo’s 5G RF For Dummies® has arrived. What’s happening with 5G rollouts, what is just on the horizon, and what advancements does the future hold? We are here to help you learn all you need to know about 5G.
JFW’s 50P-2111 is a 50-Ohm, solid state programmable attenuator with attenuation range 0 to 95 dB by 1dB steps. The unit operates bidirectionally over the frequency range 200 MHz to 8 GHz. The unit is labeled “input” and “output” because the RF power rating is different for each port. The input port is rated for +24 dBm. The output port is rated for +15 dBm. It is available with SMA female RF connectors.
