38 PCB007 MAGAZINE I MAY 2018 Prismark Partners LLC presented a detailed report at the recent CPCA meeting and show in Shanghai, China, on the challenges and op- portunities for the PCB market. Part of the dis- cussion was on 5G and is excerpted here with permission. 5G promises exciting new capabilites. The objective is to achieve the following goals, al- though not necessarily all in the same device or use scenario: User data rates 10x faster, num- bers of connections 10x greater, latency 10x shorter and battery life 100x longer. It enables new applications in virtual/augmented reali- ty and artificial intelligence; ultra-dense con- nections mean massive IoT capability; among other things, autonomous cars can become a reality (Figure 1). Realizing the full potential of 5G will re- quire the use of new frequency bands. Cel- lular networks currently use frequencies be- Excerpts from Prismark's Presentation at CPCA 2018 Figure 1: Higher data rates and lower latencies possible with 5G enable new services.
