24 GHz Power Amplifier Frequency Band
With an ever-increasing requirement for data on mobile networks, driven by 5G, increased video streaming, autonomous vehicles and Industrial IOT, our communication networks are evolving to carry the load of much more data traffic in millimeter wave bands. Soem of these bands have now been further defined by 3GPP so global providers can further innovate.
With a 10x increase in frequency over 4G networks opens several challenges, both in the design and implementation of the required sub-components, network infrastructure and end user equipment used to drive these developments.
5G specifications like N258: Covers 24.25 to 27.5 GHz for Europe and China. The mmWave 24 to 29 GHz range is a widely tested 5G band. Development of mmWave 26 GHz band is continuing and headed up by the 3GPP TR 38.815. N258 is intended for short range transmission at high data rates.
