What does the collaborative power of Lennon & McCartney have to do with 5G communications? Perhaps not much—but I believe their days together yielded far more genius-level work than did their respective solo efforts.   From my early days at Hewlett-Packard and across five generations of wireless evolution, I have witnessed the highest levels of… (Show more)

Keysight recently launched a new video featuring Rosana, a young girl who loves to solve problems and became an engineer. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched it, and how many times watching it pulled at my heartstrings. A very strange response to a spectrum analyzer video. See for yourself.   The video’s inherent shout-out to women… (Show more)

I hate trade shows. I love Barcelona. I recently found myself once again in this juxtaposition. And thus, I will expound upon “the state of the industry as seen through the eyes of the MWC attendee” and force you to read yet another review of 2017’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).   Scale foretells opportunity According to Ericsson’s Mobility… (Show more)

Future projections for the Internet of things (IoT) are staggering: billions of devices around the world, with 500 residing in a typical home. That’s why the wireless designers I know are preparing their devices for the Interference of Things—and they’re doing it early in the development process. This is especially important for IoT widgets… (Show more)

The electronics industry is buzzing with the Internet of Things (IoT). One engineer described IoT as a vast conspiracy to put network connections on every object in the world—completely independent of whether it makes sense or not.   When we start connecting up all of these “things,” new system requirements creep in that may not be obvious. Your… (Show more)

Nearly every manufacturing executive I talk to is looking for ways to improve product quality and reliability, and they often think that drastic measures are required. They assume they’ll have to reinvent their engineering design processes, implement expensive upgrades on the manufacturing floor, or restructure their supply chain. They’re often… (Show more)

Only a few years ago, six billion hertz was plenty to manage Facebook, WeChat, and YouTube. But mobile wireless owns a fraction of that six billion so we are driving to frequencies far beyond what many of us consider our radio comfort zone. I have seen multiple radio engineering labs coming to grips with these new frequencies. As 5G mmWave goes… (Show more)

I recall detailed conversations during the 2G-to-3G and 3G-to-4G transitions about the elusive “killer app” that would drive the ROI for a better mobile phone system. Our transition to 5G technology is no different, and while the term killer app does not pervade the vernacular like it once did, the concept lives on. And it lives on in an… (Show more)
