EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Sept. 4, 2018 --
Wireless communications systems require RF power amplifiers (PAs) to overcome the transmission path loss that exists between transmitter and receiver. Toshiba designers used the NI AWR Design Environment platform to design a novel totem pole RF PA that was over 90 percent smaller than the average RF PA, making it suitable for many high-density applications where large numbers of these PAs operate together in a small space, such as phased-array radars and 5G Massive multiple-in-multiple-out (MIMO) communications systems.
“We use NI AWR software on a daily basis in our research activities, which are projects that are typically five to 10 years away from market.” Said Dr. Gavin Watkins, principal research engineer at Toshiba Research Europe Limited. “The software enables us to take rough ideas for future products and develop them into prototypes.”
