With smaller geometries, higher operating frequencies and greater levels of integration, manufacturers of 5G devices are forced to perform over the air testing. Peak power sensors and noise sources are an ideal alternative to expensive test equipment for 5G OTA calibration, verification, and measurements. The presentation will address how amplified AWGN noise modules offer a cost-effective alternative for generating OFDM-like signals and peak power sensors offer a fast, simple, cost-effective alternative for measuring signals with high peak-to-average ratios or crest factors to calibrate, verify, and make measurements in over-the-air (OTA) applications.
