Performance Requirements for Reference Clocks for 5G Communications

The proliferation of data demand in recent years has given rise to the deployment of high-speed 5th-generation communication systems (5G), for mobile communications, the Internet of Things (IoT),and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). To keep up with the increased demand for data, communications capacity must continue to increase by adopting faster data rates and allocating more bandwidth. Faster data rates and higher bandwidths require precision clocks and pose stringent requirements on the permissible noise levels. Here, we explain the 5G communication system situation, the performance required for reference clocks, and Epson's efforts in these areas.
