Signals Research Group partners with Rohde & Schwarz on 5G PAs

Signals Research Group, in conjunction with Rohde & Schwarz USA Inc., is conducting a research report on the state of 5G power amplifiers that will involve the products and support of several industry leading component companies currently working on 5G power amplifiers. Signals Research Group plans to publish this report in its Signals Ahead publication during the second half of 2016.

Power amplifiers for 5G systems will be required to deliver exceptional performance and at much higher frequencies than 4G systems today. The 28-GHz band, in particular, is getting considerable attention from researchers and companies around the world with its ability to supply very wide bandwidths, allowing 5G systems to deliver individual data throughputs as high as 10 Gb/s. Other performance factors, such as power added efficiency (PAE) and error vector magnitude for single and multicarrier signals, will be important for 5G power amplifiers.

“5G will be pushing the performance envelope unlike anything we’ve ever experienced,” said Charlie Zhang, V.P. of Samsung Research America. “As a user of power amplifiers in our mobile phones and devices, we are interested to learn about the current state of power amplifier performance for upcoming 5G devices. This report is very timely and useful, and we appreciate the work that Signals Research Group and Rohde & Schwarz have put into it.”
