Technical Challenges

Operating in the millimeter wave band presents unique technical challenges versus traditional connectivity and cellular systems:


Traditional approaches to RF design breakdown, requiring new and innovative architectures to achieve high performance in low cost bulk CMOS foundries.

Higher frequencies have greater transmission losses caused by distance, blockage, and non-line-of-sight conditions, depending on the environment and the application.

To achieve longer range, beamforming antennas are often required, adding to system complexity.

Solving these challenges will unlock the huge potential offered by much greater bandwidth, spatial reuse, and frequency reuse, which support much higher performance systems in the same regions.
