Plug-in 5G data stability

Panasonic Industry presents its simplified and stable Board to FPC Connector for 5G Millimeter-wave Antenna Modules in modern communication devices

5G – the current framework for mobile communication reality means nothing less than an entirely new dimension in capacity, speed and simultaneity of daily data communication – especially within the defined frequency range 2 (FR2) using the millimeter-wave spectrum (28 GHz band). This is boosting the necessity for device technology being able to reliably handle a corresponding extent of data transmission.

To ensure devices like smartphones, routers and many others meeting those data transmission stability requirements, Panasonic Industry now offers a specific Board to FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) Connector for 5G, connecting the antenna module with the main board and thus contributing to an immaculate data flow for applications operating in the range of millimeter-waves.


“The connector fully meets what we expect from technology being compatible with the potentials of 5G”, points out Carsten Wieber from Panasonic Industry. “It is constructively robust, per se ready for a large amount of simultaneous high frequency signals, shields signal interferences and allows simplified circuit designs.”


The FPC connector replaces conventional coaxial connectors usually necessary for the extensive mm-wave antenna infrastructure – and thus renders additional cables, components and assembly efforts as redundant.
Noise prevention and hence communication stability is achieved by the means of a metal shielding structure, covering the connector’s socket and the header’s outer part, resulting in optimized EMI/EMS characteristics
This very metal shielding – and Panasonic Industry’s unique tough contact structure ensure the connector being flawlessly robust and resistant to shocks, vibrations and all other impacts that prevail for most of modern IoT or portable communication devices.

Overcoming Signal Integrity Challenges of 112G Connections on PCB

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

One big challenge with 112G SerDes is handling signal integrity (SI) issues. By the time the signal winds its way from the transmitter on one chip to packages, across traces on PCBs, through connectors or cables, and arrives at the receiver, the signal is very distorted, making it a challenge to recover the clock and data-bits of the information being transferred. Learn how to handle SI issues and ensure that data is faithfully transmitted with a very low bit error rate (BER).

0 to 112 (Gbps PAM4) in 5 Seconds

Sponsored by Samtec

With serial connections hitting 112Gbps, we can’t mess around with our interconnect. We need engineered solutions that will keep those eyes open and deliver the signal integrity we need in our high-speed designs. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton talks with Matt Burns of Samtec about the interconnect options for speeds up to 112Gbs, and Samtec’s Flyover interconnect technology.
