5G Wireless Networks (265)

This three day course provides comprehensive information on the 5G wireless network with a focus on physical layer and air interface technologies. The course starts with a review of cellular standards evolution and the shortcomings that 5G addresses. Next we move on to describe the modulation waveforms and also look at the issues that are introduced by working with higher GHz frequency bands. Further topics include Massive MIMO, network architecture, 5G system features, and evolutionary services.

5G, mm-Wave Antenna Integration & Test Techniques (268)

This two day course provides participants with coverage of antenna, integration, test, and propagation topics associated with millimeter Wave (mm-Wave) and 5G applications. The course provides an understanding of basic antenna property definitions, antenna fundamentals and considerations, antenna types and mm-Wave propagation fundamentals. The course provides information on how antenna properties and propagation characteristics affect communication systems. Topics also covered include how to test and measure mm-Wave antenna performance.

Smartphone RF Architecture Fundamentals (267)

This course is intended for design, application and test engineers as well as technicians wanting to learn about the fundamentals of handset RF architectures, including aspects of the radio design covering the entire signal chain from the RF input to the A/D Digital interface. The aim is understand system design methods to dissect the different radio architectures with emphasis on the physical layer (RF) for the most advanced commercial 4G-LTE and the new MIMO-5G systems.

WiFi and Bluetooth RF Aspects: Standards, Systems, and Measurements (269)

Successful integration of WiFi and or Bluetooth features into a product requires more than simply finding room on the board to place "off the shelf" chips. A proper understanding of how the radios work and the issues that they face will allow you to achieve a successful implementation with fewer expensive surprizes. This two day course provides a working knowledge of how the standards operate to guide your integration efforts.
