Beam Management for mmWave 5G New Radio Systems

Originally broadcasted on Wednesday, 11 September 2019 - 11:00 AM EDT

Beam management is the defining feature that makes the mmWave communications different than sub 6 GHz in the 5G NR specification.  3GPP Release 15 outlines the basics of beam management but many of the details for implementation are undefined, making it a critical research topic for mmWave communications systems.  Antenna performance and beam characteristics are important inputs to consider when designing and selecting algorithms for beam management.  This webinar will provide an overview of the details of Release 15 beam management, discuss beam management topics being addressed in Release 16, and examine the real-world performance of a phased array antenna in the context of beam management.

5G NR Device Manufacturing Challenges: Scaling Millimeter-wave Phased Arrays for Directional Communications

Originally broadcasted on Tuesday, 30 April 2019 - 2:00 PM EDT

Millimeter-wave scaled phased arrays support many antenna elements by utilizing multiple integrated circuits (ICs). Module-level integration techniques are leveraged to couple in-package or on-board antennas to the supporting ICs. Such scalable phased arrays are attractive for emerging directional 5G communications since they enable beamforming and beam steering. In addition, a large number of antennas improves link margin; this overcomes the most significant 'path loss' handicap of millimeter-wave communications. Along with its benefits, scaled phased array designs unfortunately come with an increased level of complexity that makes their implementation challenging.

This webinar will examine some of the key challenges with scaling phased arrays such as:

  • Signal distribution among multiple ICs
  • Increased number of assembly steps
  • Stringent area constraints on the ICs to fit within an area compatible with that of the antennas they support
  • Increased digital control complexity

In addition to examining these challenges, this webinar will look at two recently introduced scaled 64-element dual-polarized phased array designs as implementation examples:

  1. A phased-array transceiver module operating at 28GHz supporting 5G applications, and
  2. TX and RX phased arrays operating at 94GHz, suitable for backhaul and imaging applications.

Design techniques relevant to these applications and measurement results validating the designs will be presented. Finally, an emerging software-defined approach to managing the large number of beam configurations of highly integrated phased-array designs will be discussed.

Creating Over-the-Air Testbeds with OAI and SDRs

Originally broadcasted on Tuesday, 9 April 2019 - 10:00 AM EDT

Creating over-the-air testbeds and prototypes of wireless systems have become increasingly more pervasive in the last decade thanks to advances in Software Defined Radio technology. But hardware alone is not the reason. Open source and commercial software have played a large role in making over-the-air testbeds possible. Whether a researcher wants to take a cellular stack and build on top of it for specific research or use an SDR programmed as an eNB, software like Open Air Interface (OAI) is a crucial piece of the system. This webinar aims to look at how OAI and commercial off the shelf SDRs can be used to create powerful testbeds for advanced wireless communications, from 4G, to 5G and beyond.
