We all want 5G smartphones that can live stream high-definition selfies, 5G augmented reality gear or 5G drones that can broadcast 4K video from anywhere on the planet. But analysts say 5G devices aren’t coming any time soon. Let’s take a deeper look at why.
For 5G mobile device like smartphones, the challenge engineers face is miniaturizing and optimizing the performance of the radio frequency front end. The RF front-end module consists of filters, amplifiers and switches to manage gigahertz RF signals.
Filters for 5G bands are especially challenging to optimize, and in a 5G smartphone there will be dozens of these tiny filters. In fact, the only way to truly optimize RF filters is by using computer-aided engineering simulation and optimization. And the only CAE platform capable of optimizing next-generation RF filters is OnScale.
