Hybrid Beamforming for 5G Applications
From the series: Signal Processing and Wireless – Webinar Series
Dr. Ganesan Thiagarajan, MMRFIC Technology Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore
Massive MIMO is one of the key technologies that will make or break the 5G deployment, especially in mmwave frequencies. Due its complex nature, massive MIMO remains a challenge for infrastructure as well as handset designers. In this talk, we look at the challenges in beamforming during initial access as well as during tracking of connected mobiles. Computing the optimal beamformer weights for the analog and digital beamformers will also be discussed. Some simulation results will be provided for the PBCH channel and PDSCH channel.
