Engineer’s Guide to 5G Semiconductor Test
Published by NI
This paper assumes a basic familiarity with the 5G physical layer; it focuses on the new challenges of testing semiconductor devices for wideband 5G applications. The enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) use case points to supporting greater user data rates and increased system capacity. Departing from legacy 3G and 4G cellular standards, eMBB introduces radically higher operating frequency bands, deploying not only in traditional cellular bands but also higher frequencies to 3.5 GHz, 6 GHz, and up to the mmWave range, for much higher bandwidth allocations.
