Every Block Covered: Noise and Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) in a 26 GHz 5G Front-End

This installment of our Every Block Covered series builds on the concepts we established for cascading system noise parameters in a simple microwave receiver front-end. Using a more complex front-end for the 5G n258 (26 GHz) band, we’ll explain how multiple non-linear components and shifts in bandwidth between stages affect the analysis.
