The Search For 5G mmWave Filters


Cellular telephone technology takes advantage of a large number of frequency bands to provide ever-increasing bandwidth for mobile use. Each of those bands needs a filter to keep its signals separate from other bands, but the filter technologies in current use for cellphones may not scale up to the full millimeter-wave (mmWave) range planned for 5G. “MmWave will happen,” said Mike Eddy, ... » read more

Manufacturing Bits: June 15


Next-gen RF signal processors Sandia National Laboratories has taken steps to realize the development of acoustic wave amplifiers, a technology that could one day pave the way towards long-awaited tiny RF signal processors. Researchers have developed piezoelectric acoustic devices using surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology and demonstrated the ability to manufacture these devices. Still i... » read more
