    5G Technology

    5G Technology

    The GSM Association hopes that the 5G network will be connected to more than 1.7 billion people by 2025. The service area for the 5G network is divided into small cells. A locally established antenna is used to provide a network to the cells through the radio wave.

    If we summarize the 5G network, then we could say it is the fastest cellular network providing technology. 5G offers the fastest download speed, which might be 10 gigabits per second (Gbit/s).

    Here is the explanation of 5G technology to know more:

     

    What Is 5G PCB?

    The printed circuit board or the PCB is the heart of modern electronics. The PCBs provide the connection between the components placed on the PCBs. Also, the PCBs supply high-frequency radio signals, along with analog and digital signals. Mainly, the data transmission happens through the PCB to enable the operation power of the electronics.

    5G PCB is the PCB that includes 5G cellular network technology to provide the high-frequency cellular radio signals to the cellular phones from a 5G network hub. 5G PCB technology offers 10 to 20 times higher signal transmission rate compared to its predecessor 4G network technology.

    A 5G PCB Layout

    A 5G PCB Layout

    The fundamental goal of the 5G PCB is to ensure combined high-speed and high-frequency communications.

    How Does 5G PCB Work?

    The 5G technology, like previous network technologies such as 3G and 4G, works using cells. The cells are split into packages that transmit encoded signals through radio waves.

    Every cell package requires a network backbone. The cellular network will use a wireless or cable connection. The Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) encoding type is utilized in the 5G PCB network.

    5G Enabled PCB

    5G Enabled PCB

    A high-power tower is used in 4G network technology to cover a large region with electromagnetic radiation. However, in high-elevated areas, 5G technology requires tiny buildings every 1 kilometer. These small cells transmit radio waves across short distances.

    The primary objective of 5G PCB is to achieve considerably higher signal frequencies and reduced latency over 4G networking. The principle bodies focused on 20 Gbps speeds and 1ms inertness, so, all in all, exceptionally fascinating things start to occur with the 5G systems administration.

    Which PCB Materials Are Used In 5G Systems?

    One of the most critical components of a 5G PCB is a 5G technology antenna. The antennas used in 5G PCB have an enormous capacity for receiving high-frequency signals, a broader wireless spectrum usage, and high-gain steerability.

    An antenna radome is used to protect the antenna. It has typical UV resistance, low-temperature mechanical strength. Plastic like PP, PC, PVC, SMC, etc., are used to make radome shells.

    5G MMWave Spectrum

    5G MMWave Spectrum

    The 5G wireless standard requires a mmWave spectrum to allow microwave circuitry with wireless signal transmission. Oscillator modules and dielectric resonators are examples of microwave circuits that use a lot of conducting materials. High-frequency radio transmissions are made more accessible as a result of this.

    The 5G PCB’s power amplifiers are composed of gallium nitride semiconductor and polybutylene PBT. In addition, silicon germanium is utilized in the construction of high-frequency power amplifiers in order to run them at optical wavelengths.

    Cat 6A 5G SxTP®  is the specially designed cable used in 5G communication applications.

    The 5G circuit board substrate is made of Alkali-free fiberglass fabric, FR4 epoxy resin, and PTEF. They have a low DF factor and dielectric constant value. Other materials such as PI, PTFE, PEEK, PPE, LTCC, and others are utilized to improve the substrate properties.

    But, the 5G developing companies are also developing additional material with much less dielectric constant. Also, high-speed clock microcontrollers are needed to develop 5G PCBs.

    What Are The Considerations Useful For Designing a 5G PCB?

    Though most smartphones use 3G and 4G networking bandwidth, 5G technology is beginning to be adopted. 5G technology is faster and more powerful, which will facilitate more smoothness of cellular internet experience.

    So, 5G PCBs are taking place gradually. Since most smartphones use 3G and 4G technology, there are essential things to consider designing the new 5G PCBs.

    The transmission and receiving frequencies of 3G and 4G technology components typically vary from 600 MHz to 5.925 GHz. For IoT systems, the bandwidth channels are 20MHz. The frequencies for 5G PCBs will be boosted to 28 GHz, 30 GHz, and perhaps 77 GHz, which will need mmWave frequencies.

    5G technology will require frequencies ranging from 100 MHz to 6 GHz for bandwidth.

    5G Is Used In Smartphones

    5G Is Used In Smartphones

    Material selection should be the first consideration when building a 5G PCB in order to accommodate and control these higher frequencies. Higher and lower signal rates, as well as minimal signal losses and EMI, should be guaranteed.

    Lighter, smaller, and more portable 5G PCBs will be developed. Microelectronics accommodation should be modified with the boards due to their tiny size and weight.

    Controlled impedance and thinner traces should be ensured for the 5G PCB copper tracing, so that signal loss could not happen. Another fact is the dielectric constant.  The designers are trying to achieve the dielectric constant for the material under 3. The standard value of the dielectric constant of the materials varies from 3.5 to 5.5 currently.

    For high-speed PCBs, tighter fiberglass weaving, smaller profile copper, and lower dissipation factor loss material may be the best options for preventing signal losses. At the same time, improved signal integrity would be assured.

    Check on the design rules of a high-speed PCB on the video:

    How To Minimize Impedance Variation Of 5G Microwave PCB?

    The impedance is the combination of the inductance and capacitance of the PCB when the high-frequency passes through it. Controlled impedance is the way to predetermine the resistance of an electric circuit to layering the current.

    The PCB conductive traces will not generally behave typically if the impedance is uncontrolled. The controlled impedance helps to maintain the perfect signal passes to keep the performance of the PCB constant.

    So, controlled impedance is essential. To keep the consistency of controlled impedance, you should:

    • Calculate the target impedance
    • Keep the traces in the right wide and height
    • Determine the layers of the 5G PCB before designing
    • Keep sufficient spaces between the components of the PCBs.

    How To Extend The Lifespan Of 5G PCB?

    As an object, a 5G PCB must be a destructible thing. It will not last forever. But you should get the desired performance of the PCB till the last day of the lifespan of the PCB. Though a 5G PCB will not last forever, you can extend the lifespan of a PCB by following the tips below.

    • Dust should be removed from the printed circuit board every 3-6 months. You may clean your gadgets with a blower and cleaning fluid intended for electronics.
    • Check the components on your PCB regularly. If a problem is discovered right away, take action.
    • Maintain a temperature of 15 to 21 °C for the PCB spare components.

    • Place the board in the moisture vapor barrier bags to absorb moisture and keep dry.
    • Keep dirt, high temperatures, and moisture out of your circuit storage area.

    What Is CCL In 5G PCB Manufacturing?

    The Copper-Clad Laminate (CCL) is a PCB foundation material. It is made up of prepreg sheets that have been bonded together using high heat and pressure. On both sides of the 5G PCB, copper foil is present. PCB laminates are like plastic composites after the resin solidifies, with copper foil layers on both surfaces.

    The CCL is used in high-speed communication and conventional devices PCBs. Copper clad laminate is utilized to build the base-board of the 5G PCB since 5G technology involves a high-speed frequency.

    What Is The Component Mounting Process In 5G Mobile Phone PCB Assembly?

    Component Mounting

    After designing and finishing the making of your PCB, you are to assemble your PCB. Component mounting is the way of mounting components on your PCB board that is ready for assembly. There are two types of component mounting processes available: through-hole technology (THT) and surface mounting technology (SMT).

    Through-Hole Technology (THT)

    THT refers to the process of drilling holes in a PCB and then mounting components via those holes. According to the client’s design, holes are drilled to install the parts.

    Surface Mounting Technology (SMT)

    Surface mounting technology directly mounting components on a PCB’s surface rather than drilling the PCB’s surface. SMT assembly allows for component installation to be automated.

    How To Control Temperature Change In 5G PCB Operations?

    Since the 5G PCBs are dealing with high-frequency, generating high-temperature is expected.  To manage the temperature changes on the 5G PCBs, you could follow the following tips.

    • Place big metal pads beneath the PCBs heating components.
    • To disperse the heat, use vias to transmit heat from one layer to the next.
    • Add a heat sink to absorb the heat from the 5G PCB’s hot areas.
    • Make use of cooling fans.
    • Strategically arrange the components.
    • Switching actions should be reduced.
    • Use better transformers
