How To Characterize Low-Noise Amplifiers

Receivers only operate as well as their internal low-noise amplifiers perform. However, amplifiers prove to be the most challenging system component to characterize fully. Learn how the Keysight E5081A ENA-X network analyzer simplifies low-noise amplifier performance verification by using flexible hardware and advanced software capabilities to improve measurement accuracy and repeatability. ... » read more

Challenges Grow For 5G Packages And Modules

The shift to 5G wireless networks is driving a need for new IC packages and modules in smartphones and other systems, but this move is turning out to be harder than it looks. For one thing, the IC packages and RF modules for 5G phones are more complex and expensive than today's devices, and that gap will grow significantly in the second phase of 5G. In addition, 5G devices will require an as... » read more
