Spatial Multiplexing and Hybrid Beamforming for 5G Wireless Communications


In this webinar, we will show how to:

  • Develop an antenna array and visualizing the geometry, 2D and 3D directivity, and grating lobes
  • Import antenna patterns to increase model fidelity
  • Design spatial multiplexing system to increase channel capacity with MIMO operations
  • Partition beamforming function between the RF and digital domains in hybrid beamforming architectures
  • Design array architectures, generate RF phase shifts and digital complex weights, and evaluate the results
