Novel Communications Architecture For Future Ultra-High Speed Wireless Networks
Novel Communications Architecture For Future Ultra-High Speed Wireless Networks

The radio frequency spectrum, the basis for wireless telecommunications, is a finite resource that needs to be managed effectively to satisfy the demands posed by the exponential growth in wireless internet access. IMDEA Networks researchers have developed a novel communications architecture for future ultrafast wireless networks that promises to achieve data rates previously only possible with optical fiber.

5G New Radio eBook

Is 5G simply another generation of mobile communications technologies? Or something revolutionary? In this eBook, Rohde & Schwarz give insights into 5G New Radio (NR), exploring all of its relevant details, key implementation aspects, and required test and measurement equipment for the development of 5G NR products.

The Wi-Fi 6 Revolution Wakeup Call For Your Test Strategy

The IEEE 802.11ax amendment (Wi-Fi 6) focuses on greater efficiency in wireless connectivity. While key attributes of this improved efficiency directly improve traditional Wi-Fi applications, these attributes will largely affect higher-density applications such as large offices, apartment complexes, airports, arenas, and outdoor stadiums. This white paper offers several ideas of how to make Wi-Fi 6 a reality.

An Automated Software Suite For Determining Electrical Characteristics Of Travelling Wave Tubes

Travelling wave tubes are vacuum devices with electron beams that couple to a microwave frequency electromagnetic signal propagating in the direction of the beam. Energy is transferred to the microwave signal, and the device generally behaves as an amplifier. A suite of software has been created, which allows very fast automated analysis of some types of travelling wave tube. This white paper delves into the design and use of this software to be used for determining the electrical characteristics of traveling wave tubes.

Design Of Rugged High Voltage Power Supplies For Use In Low Noise Multimode Radar Transmitter Sub-Systems

A radar transmitter is generally required to amplify a low noise coherent RF waveform. This waveform is generally provided by a radar RF exciter and can be fixed frequency, frequency chirped, or phase modulated during the radar transmitter pulse. It is important that the transmitter system amplifies this pulsed signal to a high power whilst maintaining its coherence and its fidelity. This paper covers an approach to the design of high voltage power supply units for operating traveling wave tube amplifiers in pulse doppler radar transmitter sub‐systems where ultra-low noise RF output is mandatory.

    What Is Your Old Spectrum Analyzer Hiding From You?

    Digital Phosphorus Technology, or DPX, is a Tektronix patented acquisition mode that performs the hardware DSP processing and rasterizing of the samples into pixel information in order to reveal a greater amount of signal detail. It gives a truly “live” view of the RF signals, with its color-grading feature allowing users to see different signals at the same frequency yet separated by either time or power levels. In this video, DPX is demonstrated and reveals signals that your old spectrum analyzer might be hiding from you. You can literally see signals hidden beneath other signals!
