Silicon Technologies for the Next Age of Wireless Connectivity

  • Baljit Chandhoke


This paper talks about 5G mmWave applications, how 5G new radio standards are driving increasing radio complexity and cost, and what are the technology requirements of mmWave applications. It talks about Phased Arrays and Front End Modules, gives a brief overview of different types of beam forming architectures for phased array antenna systems, followed by impact of semiconductor technology on the number of phased array elements. The paper concludes with technologies to meet the requirements of 5G mmWave Applications.
