The Power Efficient Architecture For 5G On mmWave Frequencies
This paper investigates the power consumption for analog and digital beamforming mmWave architectures in handheld devices. The analysis concludes that with current state-of-the art radio components, the power consumption for a digital beamforming architecture, is at least on par with analog beamforming implementations.
The Enabler Of The Mass Market For 5G On mmWave Frequencies
This paper discusses why a digital beamforming architecture when integrating antennas, front-end filters and radio transceiver in a single RF Chip, will be the enabler for 5G on mmWave frequencies.
