This application note presents a new predictive capability for simulating massive MIMO antennas and beamforming in dense urban propagation environments. Wireless InSite MIMO predicts the complex channel matrix for mobile devices within a small cell. Beamforming techniques are used to display the actual physical beams and evaluate signal power and interference, including pilot contamination distortion.
Complexity and cost issues involved in developing communications systems based on phased-array antennas are addressed through new functionalities in electronic design automation (EDA) software.
A problematic base station can be replaced, but a cable and antenna system is not so easy to replace. This article covers fundamentals of cable and antenna analysis measurements: return loss, cable loss, and distance-to-fault (DTF).
Ensuring maximum power transfer between an antenna and transmitter/receiver circuitry requires impedance matching of HF components in the antenna design. This app note describes the design and matching of a 60 GHz printed antenna.
Mobile World Congress – Ethertronics, the leader in high performance antenna system solutions, today announced the industry’s first cost-effective 5G test services and test chamber to address the complex test and verification challenges for 5G millimeter wave devices.
