Using Dynamic Array Power Technology for High-Efficiency mmWave Beamforming Front-Ends

Higher path loss at mmWave frequencies established the beamforming phased arrays as the key enabling technology due to their unique capability of range extension with steerable directivity. Efficient 5G networks require various radio units with different output power levels for specific functionalities. Therefore, output power flexibility with sustainable high efficiency is key for successful deployment of complete network ecosystems. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how Renesas beamformer products enable a wide range of output power levels while maintaining high efficiency with Dynamic Array Power™ (DAP) technology. This unique technology allows system architects to use the same antenna front end for an extended range of products from small cells and CPEs to wide-area base stations.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  1. Current challenges of mmWave 5G radio systems
  2. Unique technologies enabling more efficient radios
  3. Enabling IC features for easier system implementation
  4. Complete Renesas IC portfolio for an end-to-end RF design for 5G front-ends
