Lesson 1 - Introduction

In this course, you’ll look at why calibration quality matters in 5G applications, especially with higher frequencies, wider bandwidths, and over-the-air measurements.

Why 5G Measurements?

Testing of 5G devices have introduced more challenges for measurement accuracy and integrity.  This presentation will look at why calibration quality matters and how it has become more important in 5G applications with the move to higher frequencies, wider bandwidths and Over the Air measurements.  We will look at how measurement uncertainty and guardbands are important considerations to ensure you maximize throughput and yield while minimizing cost of test.  This could involve choosing the correct test equipment, changing test methodology and also ensuring the correct calibration of your test equipment.

Who should take this course?

This course is designed for lab managers, engineers, and technicians who work with higher frequencies, wider bandwidths, and over-the-air measurements.

We'll cover:

  • Introduction
  • Key drivers in 5G Wireless Ecosystem
  • What does “Calibration” mean to you?
  • Corrections versus Calibration
  • Measurement Uncertainty and Risk
  • Important 5G Measurements
  • Integrity of Calibration and Instruments
  • Conclusion
