Ceramic Materials for 5G Wireless Communication Systems

From ceramics.org - 

In the world of wireless communication, 5G has become almost a popculture reference. It is a term frequently used to describe improved handsets, devices, and infrastructure enabling faster speeds and more bandwidth. This article presents a cursory overview of what 5G is, what are the technical pillars of 5G systems, and finally, the role ceramic materials will play in 5G technology.

IMS 2019 is a wrap

Intel Explains 5G, When It's Coming And Why It Will Be Huge

From Forbes:

Ten years ago, if you were a daily commuter, you'd struggle to do much more than watching a few pre-loaded movies or TV episodes or play single-player games on your smartphone as you traveled to work. Today, there are all manner of streaming services which, thanks to 4G, allow you to download and upload high-quality content straight to and from your mobile device.

Announcing the GIM03 - Mighty Gimbal

New from our friends at Milliwavess - the 3D Gimbal is at the center of all Millibox products. Wiring of the DUT is done with on axis pass-through channels to prevent tangling. The Device Under Test is mounted on the laser guided 3D gimbal rotating platform. The 3D gimbal is controlled over a simple USB connection with open source software (source provided) containing all the functions and API to run and plot a full spherical (or partial) radiation pattern graph up to 1 degree resolution (64000 points). The outcome of the plot is a Comma Separated Value.
