Webinar Overview

Why this webcast is important:
Exploding frequency ranges and bandwidths of today’s 5G and Emerging Comms PHY research create new challenges in millimeter-wave design validation. Millimeter-wave frequencies expose assumptions of what is, and is not, negligible and steal raw performance including power, losses, noise, and dynamic range. As measurement uncertainties become dramatically wider, making reliable measurements becomes significantly more difficult. Signal generation and analysis systems must be rethought with careful planning.

In this webcast, we’ll cover the latest cmWave and mmWave scenarios at 28 GHz, 73 GHz, and up to 110 GHz. We’ll present measurement challenges as a series of case studies and “testbed” configurations that can be easily adapted. These testbeds combine software with flexible, high-performance, time & frequency-domain measurement equipment to deliver calibrated, low-EVM wideband signals for 5G, emerging 802.11ad/ay, and back-haul applications with bandwidths up to 5 GHz wide. An ultra-wideband signal analyzer capable of 110 GHz in a single sweep is introduced to hunt for spectral emissions and spurs that typical banded-frequency systems can miss, enabling earlier troubleshooting of risky architectural issues in R&D.

As 5G and emerging wireless standards continue to evolve, wireless designers need flexibility to troubleshoot leading-edge issues in a variety of spectrum bands as well as high performance for more rigorous R&D validation. Join this webcast to learn the latest measurement techniques needed to overcome the challenges of your next wideband design.

Who should attend:
Advanced development researchers, design engineers, signal integrity engineers, validation engineers, test engineers, architects, project managers, program managers, application managers, and application engineers.
