Millimeter-Wave Beamforming: Antenna Arrays & Characterization

Millimeter-wave bands are of increasing interest for the satellite industry and under discussion as potential 5G bands. Antennas for 5G applications make use of the shorter element sizes at these high frequencies to incorporate a larger count of radiating elements. These antenna arrays are essential for beamforming operations that play an important part in next… Read more »

Estimation of DoA Based on Large-scale Virtual Array Data

Future 5G communication systems operating in the mmwave bands (6-100 GHz) will rely on multi-antenna techniques like beamforming and MIMO 1. Therefore, measurement and description of spatial channel information (direction of arrival DoA, direction of departure DoD) is of high relevance for mm-wave system design and channel modeling.
