Webinar Overview

Phased array systems operating at millimeter wave are a focused area of research by the emerging 5G communication market. Multibeam phased arrays have driven technology to use the millimeter-wave frequency spectrum for 5G communication. Based on 5G applications requirement, there is an increasing interest in making broader use of the millimeter wave frequency band for communications where narrow antenna beams from low-volume radiating apertures provide enhanced communication security. Phased arrays can adapt their radiation patterns and cancel out information in unwanted directions depending on the operating environment. This feature significantly contributes to the reception quality and data capacity in communication systems. With massive MIMO beamforming, it is possible to reduce transmit power and still get better channel performance. A massive number of antenna elements in 5G phased array enable beamforming technology, which combines radio waves and forms a single sharp beam.

However, 5G phased array antenna system design is challenging. In this webinar, I will explain the basics of 5G phased array antennas and massive MIMO through the design, analysis and realization of these arrays for 5G communication system.
