Spirent Collaborates to Demonstrate World’s First 5G Over-the-Air Massive MIMO Beamforming RF Test Bed

Del

Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT), a global leader in mobile network, service, and device testing, today announced the successful demonstration of an over-the-air test chamber setup at the China Academy of Information and Communication Technology (CAICT) that allows for realistic evaluation of new 5G base station array antenna systems.

5G base stations (known as gNodeBs) utilize arrays containing dozens or hundreds of antenna elements to transmit and receive as much as 10 times the amount of data per second as 4G technology. CAICT has developed sophisticated mathematical “channel models” that capture how 5G radio signals propagate through the air and are affected by reflections, absorption, motion and other effects, and they worked with Spirent Communications to design a test bed to replicate those effects in a repeatable lab environment.

The system that CAICT created has been used by Huawei to test 5G gNodeB antenna array designs. It allows Huawei to simulate several types of real-world environments, such as urban and rural, in a measurable and repeatable fashion. The system uses Spirent’s probe group technique and Spirent Vertex 64 port channel emulator configuration to create 100MHz and higher radio channel bandwidths inside of an anechoic test chamber. This design allows Huawei to capture the radio beam patterns that the gNodeB creates and replicate the effects that a 5G user handset will see.

“It is a privilege to work with Spirent and Huawei to pioneer the test systems that the industry needs to make 5G a reality,” said Dr. Zhang Xiang, product manager for 5G at the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology. “As 5G work moves from trials to commercial deployments, Spirent and CAICT will continue to evolve the test methodology to support additional real-world scenarios and evolving 5G capabilities,” he added.

Transphorm’s High Voltage GaN FETs Amp Up Marotta Controls’ Military Grade High Frequency Power Supply17.12.2018 14:00Pressemelding

Transphorm Inc.—the leader in the design and manufacturing of the highest reliability and first JEDEC- and AEC-Q101 qualified gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductors—today announced with Marotta Controls that the Aerospace and Defense supplier’s upcoming power supply unit (PSU) replaces incumbent Silicon (Si) MOSFETs with high voltage GaN PQFN devices to offer advanced benefits. Marotta’s latest design operates at high frequency in a conduction-cooled mechanically constrained envelope. The supply’s topology features hard switching and an automatic transformer RESET capability where transistor voltage stresses are clamped to the input voltage. The GaN devices increase the PSU’s efficiency dramatically and alleviate a complex thermal design in the small form factor package. “The demand on our power supplies and expectation of performance is high,” explained Mike Scruggs, Principal Engineer, Marotta Controls. “This particular complex PSU needed to reliably convert and distribute power in a s

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced results from the ECLIPSE study demonstrating that TREMFYA® (guselkumab) was superior to Cosentyx® (secukinumab)* in treating adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis for the primary endpoint assessed at week 48. Data from the multicentre, randomised, double-blind head-to-head Phase 3 study demonstrated that 84.5 percent of patients treated with guselkumab achieved at least 90 percent improvement in their baseline Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) score at week 48, compared with 70.0 percent of patients treated with secukinumab (p<0.001).1 These data, presented at the 3rd Inflammatory Skin Disease Summit (ISDS) in Vienna, 12–15 December, mark the first-ever results from a head-to-head study comparing an interleukin (IL)-23-targeted biologic therapy (guselkumab) with an IL-17 inhibitor (secukinumab). ECLIPSE is Janssen’s fourth Phase 3 study for guselkumab in plaque psoriasis2-4 and is part of a comprehen
