Introduction to mmWave Beamforming

In this webinar, we will explore how active beamforming ICs can simplify phased array antennas for 5G, Satcom and Radar applications.

Three generations of active beamforming ICs based on highly integrated silicon technology have led to the commercialization of active phased array antennas for a variety of systems. This webinar will review common antenna architectures and design challenges of phased array antennas. We will delve into the features that simplify product design and reduce time-to-market, such as compact size, high power efficiency, Dynamic Array Power (DAP™), ArraySense™ and RapidBeam™ technologies.
