Several package types can be used at mmWave frequencies, so the choice will depend on the specific application. However, some general design rules apply to all forms of packaging.
This article is dedicated to describing the main components of the 5G Core Network -- as defined by the 3GPP – including an overview of the architecture, a description of the key individual network functions, and an example of 5G interworking with LTE.
This article discusses the ideas and enhancements currently being developed for 3GPP Release-16, with a focus on selected Rel-16 work items and study items. These enhancements cover not only 5G-NR, but also LTE, which is being advanced in parallel.
This article explains beamforming in the context of 5G NR specifications, and introduces beamforming characterization and beamforming verification test.
This article looks at the semiconductor process and SMT packaging options for the realisation of power amplifier (PA) integrated circuits (ICs) operating at millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies. It also presents examples of 5G mmWave SMT packaged PA designs.
Much like the 2017 event, this month’s IEEE International Microwave Symposium 2018 (IMS) was abuzz with talk of 5G applications, rollouts, and developments. But nowhere was that focus more singular than Monday’s (June 12) 5G summit, whose speaker lineup looked like a connectivity all-star roster.

5G Americas, the industry trade association and voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas, recently announced the publication of The Evolution of Security in 5G, a white paper that explores improvements in 5G technologies that have been developed to address current and emerging cybersecurity threats in commercial wireless networks.
Anokiwave recently announced its presence at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. Our 5G ICs will power our customer’s 5G arrays at all three mmW 5G bands and the Anokiwave Active Antenna Innovator Kits, driven by Anokiwave 5G ICs, will be featured at several of our partner booths.
Both companies will jointly develop the product and Ampleon will be funding parts of the Sivers IMA development by approximately MSEK 3.5. Ampleon will be the main sales channel to all tier 1 OEMs for the product resulting from the project.
Remcom announces 5G antenna array design features in the latest release of XFdtd® 3D EM Simulation Software, including workflow enhancements for modeling complex devices at millimeter wave frequencies.
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, and VSORA, which specializes in multi-core digital signal processor (DSP) design, recently announced they have demonstrated the implementation of 5G New Radio (5G NR) Release 15 on a new DSP architecture that can dramatically reduce time to market of digital modems.
At the Global Terminal Summit held on June 28, 2018, at this year’s Mobile World Congress Shanghai, China Mobile brought together the members of the 5G Device Forerunner Initiative to publish the Guideline for 5G Terminal Products. China Mobile and the other members of the 5G Device Forerunner Initiative signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).
5G represents an exponential increase in technical complexity with challenges coming from 5G new radio (NR), massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO), millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies, and over-the-air (OTA) test methods. Device makers must effectively overcome these challenges to reach commercialization faster than the competition. This paper includes useful tips to help manufacturers accelerate time to market across the 5G workflow and reach first-to-market status.
Current trends in smartphone industrial design and RF requirements, especially with the upcoming transition to 5G, mean that smartphones must fit more antennas into less space and/or increase the bandwidth of existing antennas. This article introduces four key elements to understand about antenna tuning in 4G and 5G mobile devices.
As 5G NR networks are deployed, live network testing is needed to ensure network coverage and Quality of Experience (QoE). In addition, QoE testing in 5G NR will get more complicated due to changes in the network architecture. This means traditional testing will not reflect the true service quality as seen by an application. QoE field testing will need to be tested at the application layer to address the 5G NR QoE measurement challenge and translate the user experience into measurable KPIs.
Qorvo offers a variety of high-frequency switches designed to enable 5G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
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.
5G is more than low-band front-end modules and switches. Qorvo has all the core RF technologies to fully address and enable 5G — from wireless infrastructure to mobile devices to Gallium Nitride (GaN) technologies to make them happen. Qorvo partners with carriers and standards bodies to bring the vision to life.
