Linearization and Efficient 5G Radio Front-Ends

Evolution of the Transmit Radio Front-End from 2G to 4G for mobile devices and infrastructure, with cost and energy efficiency driving demand, has resulted in the widespread adoption of envelope tracking and Doherty techniques for efficiency enhancement, augmented by digital predistortion. The step-change in 5G requirements, especially bandwidth, operating frequency and beamforming, presents an opportunity…

White Paper: Radio fundamentals for cellular networks

Cellular technologies have advanced from first generation (1G) analog technologies to advanced high performance fourth generation (4G) and fifth generation (5G) systems in just four decades. Despite the increase in complexity of wireless standards and devices, cellular technologies maintain a set of common principles that form the basis behind the design of cellular systems. In…

5G Radio Framework

Delivering on all of 5G’s use cases will require unique combinations of both existing and new technologies such as multiple access, modulation coding, multiple antenna, protocol aspects, etc. In this 9 minute video, Rohde & Schwarz Technology Manager Reiner Stuhlfauth explores the fundamental technologies that make up the 5G radio framework.
