CMOS SAW-less digital transmitter enables advanced 3, 4 & 5G
imec and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) have demonstrated a 0.22mm2 CMOS resistive charge-based direct launch digital transmitter with -159dBc/Hz out-of-band noise. The achievement paves the way to small form-factor SAW-less transmitter implementations enabling advanced wireless communication systems including all the cellular standards 3G, 4G and future 5G.
The power behind the IoT
Much has been written about how the IoT will change the way we live our lives and it‘s been the primary buzzword on the lips of technologists for some time. While issues and concerns have justifiably been raised around security and safety, there’s no doubt that the IoT is here to stay.
Switches deliver ultra-low latency & high bandwidth for 5G
IDT's next-gen RapidIO switches deliver the ultra-low latency, high bandwidth and superior energy efficiency needed for the development of 4G LTE-A and 5G wireless infrastructure systems. The RXS switch family delivers greater than twice the performance of IDT’s previous-gen switches and are also suited for applications with intensive bandwidth and low latency requirements such as mobile edge computing, high-performance computing and data a...
The race to 5G
What is 5G? Is it just about the speed?
Whitepaper explores rural ‘not-spots’ in the 5G era
The University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) has published a whitepaper describing the capacity and coverage challenge for wireless networks in the coming decades. Collaborating with partners from BT, Telefonica, Real Wireless and EE, 5GIC researchers identified a need for 5G to tackle the challenge of universal mobile coverage that delivers the required speed and capacity for a range of applications, in a range of geographical ar...
What do we talk about when we talk about 5G
Way beyond faster connection, 5G means a whole new generation for technology and a whole new experience for human life. It will revolutionise the production and application of technologies such as self-driving cars, video multi-casting, smart grids, robotics, virtual reality, and even remote medicine.
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...
