Learn more on how a full range of comprehensive testing solutions from Rohde & Schwarz can help you deploy high performance and reliable operations in 5G private networks across various industries, for humans (QoE) and machines (M-QoE) users.

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.

  • The purpose of this article is to draw a comparison between a traditional sub-6 GHz macrocellular and a mmWave base station radio and antenna design. It further covers how these design differences impact DPD implementation in mmWave arrays relative to sub-6 GHz radios.

  • The ADMV1139 is an silicon on isolator (SOI), microwave, upconverter and downconverter optimized for 5G radio designs operating in the 37 GHz to 48.2 GHz frequency range.

  • Engineers are always looking for the simplest solution to complex system design challenges. Look no further for answers in the U-NII 1-8, 5 and 6 GHz realm. Here we review how state-of-the-art bandBoost™ filters help increase system design capacity and throughput, offering engineers an easy, flexible solution to their complex designs, while at the same time helping to meet those tough final product compliance requirements.

  • Dale Hauck, an Applications Engineer for AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation, discusses technical considerations for testing 5g base station finals for digital pre-distortion (dpd) characterization.

  • Over the past several decades, wireless system channel counts and bandwidths have steadily increased. The driving factors for these modern telecommunication, radar, and instrumentation systems are their data rate and overall system performance requirements.

  • Over the past 10 years, smartphones and smart devices have transformed the way we communicate, are entertained and carry out our work. Over 1 billion devices are sold each year and around half the world’s population own a smartphone.
