The advanced antenna systems in modern devices leverage beam steering and multiple data stream transmission to meet 5G throughput requirements. XF provides performance metrics for 5G beam steering applications via the new cumulative distribution function (CDF) of effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) plot.

The CDF of EIRP metric is growing in importance as carriers require devices to meet strict quality thresholds. Learn how XF is an integral tool for preparing your device for the challenging demands of 5G networks.


Key Take-Aways:

  • Learn about the growing importance of the CDF of EIRP metric for meeting carrier quality requirements.

  • Generate a CDF of EIRP plot in XF and evaluate an array’s quality of coverage.

  • Import optimized matching topology data from Optenni Lab into XF and analyze circuit performance.
