The future of mobile communication specified in 5G includes sub-6 GHz frequency bands, mm-Wave frequencies (28 GHz, 39 GHz) for very high throughput in enhanced Mobile Broadband, Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications and Massive Machine Type Communication. This diversity including their specific challenges demands from RFIC designers to discover innovative architectures and smart techniques to enable novel products. This workshop will provide the community in-depth understanding of new and underlying concepts and systems in 5G, including the advantages and challenges of Massive MIMO and beam-forming, as well as RFIC design examples such as 5G mm-Wave circuits for transceivers and key building blocks.
The motivation of this workshop is to capture the lead-edge of IC design, what is the demand of the industry in the context of innovation in line with novel process technologies, as well, what are circuit and architectural concepts that are demanded. We focus especially on RFIC circuits design and technologies competing for today’s and tomorrow’s applications in 5G.
