5G mm-wave from an antennas and propagation perspective
The development of the next-generation telecommunication technology, 5G, is in full swing. 5G includes several new frequency bands. Some of those new bands are allocated close to or even in the millimeter-wave (mm-wave) region (30-300 GHz), which is significantly higher than the traditional frequency bands for telecommunication (< 6 GHz). This giant leap in the operating frequencies pushes the antennas closer to the integrated circuits (ICs) in order to achieve an acceptable cost-performance trade-off. Eindhoven University of Technology has researched such co-integrated antenna solutions for mm-wave applications for over ten years. This talk will give an overview of this research and project the findings onto 5G mm-wave – all with the hope for a lively discussion!
