5G for IoT Gets Closer

5G for IoT Gets Closer

5G for IoT

Very recently, 3GPP announced that 5G Release 17 was finalized. One important consequence is that 5G RedCap (reduced capacity) is now real and that means 5G becomes accessible to IoT devices. Think smart wearables (e.g. watches), industrial sensors and surveillance devices. “So what?”, you protest. “I don’t need 5G on my watch.… Read More


A Fresh Look at HLS Value

A Fresh Look at HLS Value

Streaming min

I’ve written several articles on High-Level Synthesis (HLS), designing in C, C++ or SystemC, then synthesizing to RTL. There is unquestionable appeal to the concept. A higher level of abstraction enables a function to be described in less lines of code (LOC). Which immediately offers higher productivity and implies less bugs… Read More


Connecting Everything, Everywhere, All at Once

Connecting Everything, Everywhere, All at Once

Connecting Everything Everywhere All at Once

The automotive industry is rapidly coming to the realization that connecting cars is about so much more than simply adding a modem, an antenna, and a bit of software. Connecting cars and connecting car owners with an attractive connectivity value proposition may be two of the most difficult things the industry has ever attempted.… Read More


Why Software Rules AI Success at the Edge

It is an unavoidable fact that machine learning (ML) hardware architectures are evolving rapidly. Initially most visible in datacenters (many hyperscalars have built their own AI chips), the trend is now red-hot in inference engines for the edge, each spinning new ground-breaking methods. Markets demand these advances to … Read More

Fig 11 KingCountyAirport Scenario STK Annotated

In our previous blog installments, we examined the ingredient for modeling the potential for interference between a 5G C-band base station and an aviation radar altimeter. Using candidate emissions models for the transmitter, wideband susceptibility models for a candidate radar altimeter receiver and antenna and propagation… Read More

Fig 7 HFSS Antenna Patterns

In our previous blog installment, we introduced the components of RF interference modeling, and established models for wideband peak emissions of a 5G C-band transmitter and the wideband receiver susceptibility for a radar altimeter receiver. Here, we consider the third component: the wireless channel, which considers the… Read More

Fig 4 Elements of Interference Analysis

In our first blog installment, we outlined the interference concerns surrounding the coexistence of the new C-band 5G telecom service spanning the band from 3.7 to 3.98 GHz with aviation radar altimeters. Radar altimeters are essential components for safety during landing and takeoff, as they offer precise measurements from… Read More

Fig 1 Verizon Cov Map 5G UWB

The new 5G C-band service is now up and running in the U.S., and subscribers are finally starting to see some of the promise of 5G. The new C-band services are primarily in spectrum allocations between 3 and 4 GHz, providing the wider channel allocation bandwidths necessary to deliver significantly higher data throughput. At the… Read More

5G’s Departure from Its Predecessors

In each move from 1G to 4G people became accustomed to seeing the new generation as primarily offering increased bandwidth and efficiency. It would be a mistake to view the transition to 5G along these same lines. 5G takes Radio Area Networks (RANs) from a use model primarily for cell phone communications… Read More
