Next-generation 5G/6G communication systems will provide massive connectivity to theinternet with extreme capacity, coverage, reliability, and ultra-low latency, enabling a widerange of new services made possible through innovative technologies. Enhanced mobilebroadband (eMBB) extends the current mobile experience with high data throughput on theorder of more than 10Gbps, high system capacity on the order of more than 1000X that of LTE,and a much better spectral efficiency (3-4X) than LTE. This white paper examines the designchallenges for eMBB products and provides examples of how these challenges can beovercome using the co-design capabilities in Cadence AWR Design Environment software.
A new 5G NR Design for eMBB white paper showcases the unique system and circuit capabilities in Cadence software that overcome eMBB design challenges. A 28GHz receiver integrated circuit (IC) and phased-array reference design is presented in which the capabilities of AWR Design Environment, Virtuoso RF Solution, EMX Planar 3D Solver, and Allegro PCB Designer software were combined to develop the RFIC receiver, package, and board with embedded antenna array.
The 5G NR Design for eMBB white paper is available for download (with registration) here.
