Looking at 5G from a microwave perspective
With 5G looming large on the horizon, it’s an exciting time to be an RF engineer. As we embark on the road to 5G (the next generation wireless communications system), there are countless challenges and opportunities emerging for the engineering community. Thomas Cameron, CTO, Communications Infrastructure, Analog Devices explains more.
5G roadmap brings flexible wireless connectivity
AT&T is unveiling its 5G roadmap to bring customers the next-generation of super-fast, flexible wireless connectivity. Technologies such as millimeter waves, Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) will be among the key ingredients for future 5G experiences.
Researchers demonstrate world's first 5G
Keysight Technologies, in collaboration with electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego, has demonstrated the world's first 64 (8 x 8) and 256-element (16 x 16), 60-GHz silicon wafer-scale phased-array transmitter with integrated high-efficiency antennas for Gbps communications at 100 to 200 meters. With this demonstration, Keysight and UC San Diego have proven that a 5G communication link is not only possible, but can delive...
