Directional communication using antenna arrays will be a centerpiece of future communication systems in the sub-6 GHz bands and in the millimeter-wave bands. Currently, highly integrated phased-array transceivers are emerging that support steering the main lobe of the antenna array pattern, thereby improving the link budget and providing some spatial filtering. However, in order to increase data rates, network capacity and achieve better interference management, advanced multi-antenna techniques are deemed essential in future wireless networks. These techniques include various forms of multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) signaling, adaptive null-steering, spatial equalization, interference mitigation etc. This talk will present recent advances in the design of advanced beamforming transceivers that can support such multi-antenna signal processing. In particular, the design of phased arrays that can address very wide swaths of millimeter-wave spectrum, and the design of hybrid beamformers that can support millimeter-wave MIMO communication will be described.
