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

WEBINAR: 5G is moving to a new and Open Platform O-RAN or Open Radio Access Network
by Daniel Nenni on 06-10-2022 at 6:00 am

The demands of 5G requires new designs to not only save power but also increase performance and by moving to advance power-saving nodes and by using eFPGAs will help to achieve these goals. This paper will introduce 5G and O-RAN, the complexity of these systems, and how flexibility could be beneficial. Then we will dive into how eFPGA… Read More

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

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

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
