Workshop on AP Technologies

Workshop 3

Advancements in 5G Antennas and Emerging 6G Antenna Technologies


The advent of millimeter-wave and sub-Terahertz for wireless, civilian applications have spurred unprecedented opportunities and challenges within the wireless society. Expanding the technological footprint of millimeter-wave and sub-THz antennas and propagation for Beyond 5G/6G cellular, access and infrastructures are expected to introduce unprecedented challenges. Practical design considerations and potential novel solutions related to the realization of millimeter-wave and sub-THz antennas with beamforming capabilities are discussed in detail.
This workshop attempts to share and discuss the current and emerging challenges surrounding millimeter-wave based 5G antenna systems and the upcomming 6G sub-Terahertz antenna technologies based on realistic considerations and contraints.  The workshop will assess the future direction of mobile antennas and RF circuits for high mobility devices such as future smartphones and data terminals using a holistic approach Afterwards, a series of detailed demonstrations will be discussed.
