In this session of Keysight Technologies (formerly HP and Agilent EMG group) we want to share our insights in the future of microwave. Several associated design and measurement challenges will be examined along with examples of how to solve them.
Next generation wireless systems are targeting a range of new capabilities including higher bandwidth, more connected devices, low latency, and better coverage. The measurement techniques used to measure the RF performance of these new devices also require special consideration.
To address the wide bandwidth requirements, researchers are exploring the higher frequencies in the centimeter and millimeter wave bands where more spectrum is readily available. Compared to the traditional bandwidths used at sub-6 GHz for cellular communications, the use of hundreds or even several gigahertz of spectrum at these higher frequencies require new components with much higher physical tolerances to achieve the desired performance.
