Compatible with the previously released SKY67183-396LF and SKY67189-396LF, the SKY67181-396LF by Skyworks is a high gain, LNA. Applications include small cells, massive MIMO, macro basestations, and more.

The SKY67183-396LF and SKY67189-396LF models are broadband low-noise amplifiers designed for upcoming 5G network requirements. With features such as superior gain flatness, exceptional linearity, and an internal active bias circuitry, these LNA offers the ability to externally adjust supply current and provide stable performance over temperature and process variation.

With the expansion of 5G NR for mobile connectivity, industrial and manufacturing applications such as robotics, IoT, and smart factories with automation come into play. This video demonstrates how Wireless InSite predicts the coverage and interference and accounts for the multipath in complex environments such as heavy-industrial factories, warehouses, server farms and more.

This video introduces Skyworks' high-power switch solutions for 4G and 5G Time Division Duplexing Base station systems. These high-power switches utilize Skyworks’ internal PIN-diode processes and world class design expertise.

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.

The QPA2211 from Qorvo is a GaN Power Amplifier, ideally suited to support satellite communications and 5G infrastructure. Operating from 27.5 to 31 GHz, it achieves 5 W linear power with lower than −25 dBc intermodulation distortion products and 24 dB small signal gain. 

The ADRF5300 is a reflective, SPDT switch manufactured in the silicon process, developed for 5G applications ranging from 24 GHz to 32 GHz. The ADRF5300 has a low insertion loss of 1.1 dB, a high isolation of 38 dB, and an RF input power handling capability of 28 dBm average and 36 dBm peak.

Analog Devices beamformers offer best-in-class performance with the highest levels of integration for optimum scalability and antenna array simplification. These beamformers integrate multiple channels, and each has independent phase and amplitude control in their transmit and receive paths, allowing the RF and microwave front end to electronically steer the antenna beams for an optimum transmission aiming pattern. The high level of integration enables systems, whether they are for communications, radar, electronic warfare or radio, to deliver higher levels of performance in a smaller size while reducing system costs. The beamformer IC integrates additional functionality such as digital control circuitry, power detectors, on-chip memory, power management blocks, and more for a complete antenna steering solution.

  • Museum of the Bible (MotB), located in Washington, D.C., brings to life the history, impact and stories of the Bible. Using cutting-edge technology, the MotB creates an experience unlike any other museum in the world.

  • As wireless communications networks look to a 5G future, the test and measurement industry faces significant challenges in meeting the revolution head on. To accommodate the huge array of devices and applications the market will require, 5G will be more a leap forward than a step up.

  • As RF and microwave systems require higher performance in a small footprint, designers and engineers need to get more out of every component, including capacitors. To meet these demands, Knowles Precision Devices has expanded its line of single-layer vertical electrode (V Series) capacitors to include the 100nF V80 Bypass Capacitor. 

  • In general, there are two classes of capacitors, Class-X and Class-Y, that are both used to minimize electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) in different applications. 

  • CST® Filter Designer 3D, a segment of the CST Studio Suite® simulation software from Dassault Systèmes, is a complete synthesis tool for filters and diplexers. The R&S®ZNB vector network analyzer from Rohde&Schwarz is an attractive instrument to obtain fast data reading for real-time filter tuning.
