High Reliability Electronics Enhance 5G Communications
White Paper Overview
The advent of 5G connectivity for vehicles, robotics, and drones creates new markets and applications previously only seen in science fiction movies. The latest 5G systems will need telecommunication units and boosters, or 5G Repeater Box units, distributed throughout environments and even onboard vehicles (in cases where the communication link to 5G base stations isn’t reliable due to interference or the inability to place 5G base stations in closer proximity).
Given the rugged environments these 5G telecommunication units will be placed in, continuous uptime requirements for their operation and reliability of the internal electronics and systems are of the utmost importance.
This whitepaper discusses several of the engineering challenges associated with ensuring the reliability of a 5G radio link for automotive and industrial applications and available electronic components and devices helpful in achieving these new stringent reliability requirements.
