SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF 5G COMMUNICATIONS WITH CUSTOMIZED 28 GHZ COMPONENTS FOR RADIO ACCESS

Radio access is a fundamental component of 5G communications.  The technology must support the world’s growing demand to support massive numbers of connected devices and mission critical applications, while at the same time increasing network speed and capacity.

5G extends the range of mobile communication frequencies.  The new higher frequencies especially above 10 GHz will complement the low frequency bands which continue to be the backbone of mobile networks. The higher frequencies assist to provide additional system capacity, faster data throughput, energy efficiency and interoperability with existing wireless networks.

Molex is a leading provider of RF microwave isolators and circulators, our core focus is advanced R&D, new product development, prototyping and cost-reduction by design.

One of our recent developments supporting the development of 5G communications is the 28 GHz counterclockwise surface mount circulator. The frequency range of this circulator is 27.50 to 28.35 GHz, in a compact package size 7mm x 7mm x 3.7mm.  For detailed product specifications and pricing please contact us at Sales.

Surface Mount Circulator 28 GHz for 5G Radio Access

Isolators and circulators are used in the power amplifier located inside the telecommunications base station equipment; the Isolator shields / protects the power amplifier from unwanted RF power.

Typical isolator applications;

  • Isolating transmitter from antenna
  • Isolating two stages of amplifier
  • Isolating local oscillator from mixer
