Spotlight On Wireless Technology/5G
An Introduction To The 5G Frequency Spectrum

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.

5 GHz Wi-Fi Coexistence With 5G Cellular For Improved User Experience

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.

The Polarization Loss Factor In Antenna Communication

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).

0.2 To 8 GHz, Solid State Programmable Attenuator: 50P-2111

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.
