NEWSROOM: From the founders of RF SOI


Webinar: Analog Beamforming—What is it and How Does it Impact Phased-Array Radar and 5G?

In a recent Microwaves & RF webinar, Peregrine's technical marketing manager, Andrew Christie, delivered a presentation on "Analog Beamforming—What is it and How Does it Impact Phased-Array Radar and 5G?" As 5G communication systems are rolled out and phased-array radar spreads its reach to non-military applications, our industry has taken a keen interest in beamforming. This technical webinar explains everything you want to know about beamforming systems—typical uses, digital versus analog, nulling effects, unwanted interference, side-lobe suppression, non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments and urban environments. Using Peregrine Semiconductor’s PE19601 MPAC–Beamforming device as an example, this presentation discusses Peregrine’s philosophy and approach to solving technical challenges with beamforming.

This 54-minute webinar:

  • Explores typical beamforming uses including phased-array radar and future communication systems such as 5G
  • Defines analog versus digital beamforming
  • Uncovers what matters for complex beamforming
  • Examines beam steering in urban environments and NLOS environments
  • Presents the attributes a beamformer should possess
  • Shares Peregrine Semiconductor’s philosophy and approach to solving technical challenges with beamforming
