  • Consideration of mmWave frequencies with large phased antenna arrays has become increasingly important for providing multi-Gb/s wireless data communication. However, large phased antenna arrays tradeoff gain for very narrow beam widths, which may not always be desirable for outdoor, mobile communication. This paper provides a systematic approach for beam broadening for phased antenna arrays, with unit amplitude constraint and without turning off antennas, using multi-beam subarrays and without… CONTINUE READING
