Morgan Hill, CA – April 5, 2022 – Anritsu is providing thought leadership and test solutions for 5G materials measurement applications utilizing high frequencies, as part of the Anritsu Wireless Technology Showroom. The virtual showroom includes a series of interactive presentations on emerging technologies with insights provided by Anritsu technical leaders.

The 5G Materials Measurement station features a presentation by Navneet Kataria, product marketing manager, Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs). As he explains, there is much research being conducted to characterize existing and new materials being used for the 5G, beyond 5G and 6G communication device world that will help achieve even higher data rates than what exist today without any degradation in the quality of services. As the frequencies go higher, the challenges in electromagnetic wave propagation through materials becomes even more complex and thus the need to characterize and research on new low loss materials become very important at those frequencies.

The presentation discusses fundamentals of making materials measurements, why they are necessary, and the elements of an effective test station. To conduct measurements, a configuration of a VNA, such as the VectorStar™ family that can support 70 kHz to 70GHz/110GHz/125GHz/145GHz and 220 GHz in a single sweep, fixture for material placement, and dedicated software should be used. Real-world use cases are also outlined and demonstrated.

Other stations in the Wireless Technology Showroom focus on 5G field testing, 5G network slicing for automotive and smart factory designs, service assurance, and technologies and measurements beyond 5G.
