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.
The transition from previous 802.11 standards, such as 802.11n and 802.11ac, to 802.11ax adds several new technologies and performance requirements that need to be fully tested. However, there are a number of challenges in designing these test scenarios.

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).
Anokiwave, Inc., an innovative company providing highly integrated IC solutions for mmW markets and Active Antenna based solutions, will continue its presence at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium with participation in the exposition at booth 538.
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.
Working with 5G New Radio (NR) technologies requires dealing with millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies, wide channel bandwidths, and complex multi-antenna configurations. To properly simulate 5G NR compliant signals for testing transmitters and receivers of base stations, metrology-grade reference signals are required to see the true characteristics of the device under test (DUT). This white paper outlines the steps to get started on the next phase of the 5G rollout. Insights include tips on how to create and evaluate 5G NR signals, and what to watch for during design validation.
The role of small cells is increasing with each new network and is driven by the need for faster data speeds and capacity. This article presents the latest insights on small cell market trends, RF front-end challenges, and practical solutions to meet user and manufacturer needs.
Cellular technologies have advanced from first generation analog technologies to advanced high-performance fourth generation and fifth generation systems in just four decades. Despite the increase in complexity of wireless standards and devices, cellular technologies maintain a set of common principles that form the basis behind the design of cellular systems. This white paper explores these basic principles and examine the underlying technologies that lay the foundation for today and future cellular systems.
