Back Channel presents the most captivating news and innovations in RF and microwaves. This week, we look at how Skyworks and Semtech are collaborating to launch LPWAN reference design for industrial and smart city applications, Rhode & Schwarz is contributing to the investigation of sub-THz measurement, and the U.S. and Japan warn that attacks on satellites may trigger a military response.
A single IoT device merges technologies such as RF communication, mixed-signal capabilities, and high-speed data transfer, all while minimizing power consumption. For this reason, a lot goes into IoT design to ensure reliable and efficient devices.
Over-the-air (OTA) testing, something not historically possible with past generations of wireless devices, has the potential to revolutionize wireless device testing while enabling innovative testing of both advanced antenna systems (AAS) and antenna array technology.
In 5G and 6G, mmWaves promise new high-bandwidth frequency bands, but propagation losses and fast fading pose challenges. Learn how massive MIMO beamforming mitigates mmWave propagation challenges using Wireless InSite and its mmWave hybrid beamformer.
The document discusses the role of holdover and its evolution from legacy SONET/SDH networks, which depend on frequency synchronization, up to modern 5G mobile telecommunications that rely on frequency, phase, and time synchronization using IEEE 1588.
Operating in mmWave bands requires adherence to tighter tolerances. Test methods and positioner design and selection must provide this precision, as well as accommodate more directional beamforming and a total-system approach.
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.
In this test setup, watch how products from both Boonton and Tabor demonstrate essential capabilities for accurate measurements of Wi-Fi 6 signals. In addition, Boonton and Tabor instruments have multichannel solutions, which make them excellent tools to enable MIMO Wi-Fi applications.
This passive loop antenna from A.H. Systems is designed with a balanced Faraday shield for magnetic field emissions and immunity type measurements. The loop antenna's electrostatic shield minimizes the E-field response for a more accurate magnetic field measurement.
