  1. The Road To 5G Is Paved With Fiber
    2/26/2018

    The most demanding ­5G applications will require fiber for each small cell, but the exact fiber cable requirements for each deployment will differ based on local geography and expected demand. This paper discusses the use of fiber in 5G technologies, as well as how to calculate the amount of fiber needed for 5G in metropolitan areas.

  2. High-Efficiency Front-End For Pico And Modular Large Base Stations At LTE Bands 1 And 7
    9/25/2017

    The key to improving energy efficiency lies, fundamentally, in the use of active antennas. However, duplex operation of cellular phones greatly distorts the desired performance of active antennas. To correct this, one must deploy self-diplexed antennas.

  3. What The Rapid Commercialization Of Microwave And mm-Wave Spectrum Means For The Defense Industry
    9/5/2017

    As 5G technologies bring commercial applications into the microwave and mm-Wave bands, new challenges must be met to provide safety and security to armed forces and civilians alike.

  4. A Better Way To Market Internet Of Things: Smart Home Butler
    6/30/2017

    The smart home revolution has taken a lot longer to get up and running due to the disagreements over what protocols and platforms should be used in the base technologies, as well as the poor choices in consumer words like “smart home” and “IoT.” 

  5. The Role Of Sensors For The Connected Car
    3/9/2017

    This white paper covers relevant trends and examples of innovative automotive sensors that support closed-loop control functions in exhaust gas after-treatment, transmission, and battery monitoring.

  6. Engineering The Internet Of Things: Wearables And Medical Devices
    1/26/2017

    Successful medical device and pharmaceutical companies are using engineering simulation to develop systems that ensure high reliability, provide data privacy, and achieve regulatory compliance quickly.

  7. Strengthening Security In Embedded IoT Solutions
    7/29/2016

    On the front line of the most frequently attacked IoT solutions are resource-limited embedded devices. These devices, unlike their PC or Internet counterparts, need to have their own unique security methods to defend their ever growing platforms. 

  8. Simulating Vibration, Impact And Fatigue For The IoT
    7/13/2016

    In order to design autonomous drones, wearables, self-driving automobiles, or smart industrial equipment using the Internet of Things (IoT), engineers need to take into account the amount of stress these products will encounter in harsh conditions. Many types of damage can have negative impacts like shortening the lifespan, causing warranty or repair expenses, and increasing liability risk. ANSYS simulation is created to help identify potential product failure early in the design process, which enables the anticipation of potential design problems and optimizes each product. This article describes the advantages of using ANSYS simulation for simulating severe conditions such as vibration, impact, and fatigue, with examples and images.

  9. Internet Of Things Brochure
    6/21/2016

    As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow and change the way consumers manage information in the environment, Skyworks has worked to expand its wireless connectivity product portfolio for the needs of every emerging market. These markets include automotive, connected home, industrial, machine-to-machine (M2M), medical, mobile devices, smart energy, and wearable technologies. This brochure provides a brief overview on Skyworks’ new and featured products for each market.

  10. How To Right-Size Your Wireless Testing
    5/12/2016

    In a world that runs on wireless devices and connections, wireless testing is increasingly important. Here is a "right-sizing" approach to managing trade-offs in testing methods and complexity to do what is necessary without breaking your budget.
