Filtering mmW Frequencies with LTCC Technology

As more commercial applications gravitate toward mmWave frequency bands (30 to 300 GHz), an increasingly crowded RF spectrum will require some adaptation of legacy technologies. In particular, the approaching rollout of fifth generation (5G) wireless up to 40 GHz and beyond, as well as a growing number of Satcom systems in the Ka band (26 […]

Digital Transformation with 5G, Edge Compute and AI

As we transition from 5G buzz to 5G reality, it is getting unequivocally certain that 5G is not just the next generation wireless connectivity, but it is much more than that. Per ABI research, by 2035, the 5G industry value chain will be worth $3.5 trillion. With its distinguishing characteristics like Enhanced Mobile Broad Band […]

Getting to the Source: Integrated Circuits (ICs) and Component EMC Testing

Failures in EMC testing often result in treating the symptoms of the issue rather than attacking the source. If we know the source of the issue rather than chase the symptoms, we will save time, cost, and frustrations. In this discussion, we will attack EMC testing from a component standpoint so that when issues arise, […]

Resourceful RF Testing of Wi-Fi Devices using an AP/STA Simulator

Certain test instrument features can make testing more efficient than ever before. In this workshop, learn how to simulate an actual Wi-Fi Access Point or Station to conduct RF transmitter and receiver tests on devices that support Wi-Fi 1 up to version 6. Benchmark RF performance of your Wi-Fi device, or a competitor’s, under real, […]

Doherty Power Amplifiers – Moving to mmWave

Doherty power amplifiers are widely used below 6 GHz to improve Power Added Efficiency (PAE) for communications applications. Designing Doherty PAs incurs many challenges, which increase as the frequency of operation moves towards mmWave. LDMOS, which is commonly used below 6GHz, cannot be used, and more integrated approaches need to be utilised to minimise parasitic inductances […]

WiFi 6E Chipset Characterization

Characterization and compliance testing of Wi-Fi chipsets and devices using them involves significant challenges for design and test engineers. With multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) architectures and channel bandwidths up to 160 MHz, testing is complex and demands on test equipment often require compromises when measuring RF power per channel and time alignment between channels.  Learn how […]

New Generations of Wireless and Their Impact on Measurement

With years of 5G deployment still to go and the vision for 5G still far from being realized, we are now engaged in serious dialogue for 6G. This may appear premature to many, but the time required to develop a new generation of mobile communications drives the discussion to start fifteen years before the vision […]

How 5G Is Expanding Into Manufacturing and Automotive to Bring Increased Efficiencies and Safety

This session will cover how new capabilities in 5G such as ultra- reliability, direct communication and overall enhanced performance will expand 5G into new verticals including industrial manufacturing and automotive. For example, with 5G’s capabilities, manufacturers can create smart factories where the wired industrial Ethernet is replaced with wireless 5G communication to make it possible […]

Material Measurements with VNAs

The increasing popularity of mobile communications, wireless data transfers, and instant access technologies is giving rise to the need for faster data rates and more data channels to support an ever-increasing number of users and their devices. To meet these demands, circuits must be made smaller and perform faster than ever before. One way manufacturers […]

Characterizing and Mitigating Self-Generated EMI in Wireless & IoT Devices

It is fairly common to find multiple on-board sources of energy causing EMI on today’s portable, mobile, and IoT devices. The EMI from these energy sources can couple and often interferes with the receiver performance of cellular, GPS and other wireless modules. This presentation describes methods for identifying, characterizing and reducing the coupling from these […]
